SCRIP is simply a word that means, “substitute money” – in other words; SCRIP is gift certificates/cards from national and local retailers. They’re the same gift certificates / cards that you buy at the store. Many popular retailers participate in our SCRIP program including Giant Eagle, The Gap, Shell, Pizza Hut, Red Lobster and many, many others.
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 school at a discount. Families like yours buy the certificates for full face value, they redeem them for full face value, and our parish 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 parish gets a regular source of revenue…
- You earn money as well, we will keep track of your purchases throughout the year and you will earn a percentage of the profit!
The beauty of SCRIP is that you put your regular household shopping dollars to work. You earn money for our school 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 dining out at your favorite restaurants, groceries, clothing, entertainment, and gasoline.
We sell after 4:00pm Mass on Saturday and 10:00am Mass on Sunday. Also, at Holy Family School on Thursday mornings from 8:00-10:00am.
The Holy Family Parish SCRIP program promises to be a simple and effective fundraising program.
