towerNewWe’re pleased to share some exciting news about a new fundraising program for our church. It’s called “scrip” and it’s the fundraising program that works while you shop.

Scrip is simply a word that means “substitute money”– In other words, scrip is gift certificates from national and local retailers. Many popular retailers participate in our scrip program.

You’re probably asking yourself how these stores help us raise money. It’s simple– scrip participating retailers agree to sell gift certificates to our church at a discount. Families like yours buy the certificates for full face value, they redeem them for full face value and our church keeps the difference as revenue. And scrip is exciting, because everybody wins:

The retailer gets cash up front and repeat business…
You get a powerful fundraising alternative that involves no selling…
Our church gets a regular source of revenue.
The beauty of scrip is that you put your regular household shopping dollars to work. You can earn money for our church without spending a single additional penny. Just spend your regular shopping dollars with scrip at the stores that participate in the scrip program! And scrip can be used for just about any household purchase including food, clothing, entertainment, gasoline, and even dining out.

Scrip isn’t just for the gals! We’d like the fellows in our group to know there’s scrip for places like these: Cabela’s, Best Buy, Circuit City, Dick’s Sporting Goods, Menard’s, Lowe’s, Home Depot, American Airlines, Marriott Hotel, and more.

The scrip program promises to be a simple and effective fundraising program. Thanks for your support.
