Scrip

{shopping with scrip is where it's at}

 

Wait, what is Scrip? {That sounds kind of weird} 

Scrip is an incredible fundraising tool for our parish, without turning you into a salesperson. Our parish will earn money just by using gift cards to pay for your everyday purchases! The church receives a percentage of the total purchase price back - at no additional cost to you! In other words, each business gives a donation to the parish, through the use of gift cards. {Really? >Yes.}

So, here's one family's example: 

Scrip Gift Cards Purchased

Percentage Each Business Gives

Back to the Parish

Speedway Gas Card ($25) yields 4% $1.00
Subway ($20) yields 3% $0.60
Pizza Hut ($20) yields 8% $1.60
Starbucks ($10) yields 7% $0.70
Walmart ($100) yields 2.5% $2.50
TOTAL Profit for Parish from THIS order:  $6.40
If 200 families participated weekly: $1,280.00 per week
Times 52 weeks per year: $66,560.00 per year
Extra cost to parishioners: ZERO
Benefit to the parish: PRICELESS :)  {Yeah, I had to go there...}

 

Ok, here are some ways to make this work for you and your family: 

- Buy gift cards for the things you need this week (gas, groceries, etc.)

- Start a Christmas Club for yourself: Buy 1-2 gift cards a week to have money in your hand ready for Christmas shopping in December (no more credit card bills in January!)

- If you're trying to stay on budget, using prepaid gift cards will help in only spending that set amount.

- Home project? Budget for it by buying Home Depot gift cards each week to save up. 

- Give gift cards as gifts for birthdays or holidays.

- Baby on the way? Buy a couple gift cards every few weeks during pregnancy to have some takeout meals ready for when Baby comes. What a time {and sanity} saver in those first few weeks!

- Have a college student in your life? College kids love gift cards for gas and food. I know, I checked. 

- Stash a few restaurant cards for times you want to eat out. {We call those "Mama's not cooking" nights}

There are so many ways this can work to your advantage AND help the church.

{We call that a win-win}

In the busyness of life, sometimes {or many times} it's hard to give extra time to the church. Believe me, I know. Utilizing Scrip is one {pretty simple} way to give your time to your church. Thank you for your support.
