Major Retailers Want To Give
Simon and Jude Money!
pleased to share some exciting news about a new fundraising program for our
parish. It’s called “scrip,” and it’s the fundraising program that works while
simply a word that means, “substitute money” – in other words, scrip is gift
certificates from national and local retailers. They’re the same gift
certificates that you buy at the store. Many popular retailers participate in
our scrip program including JCPenney, The Gap, Shell, Pizza Hut, Red Lobster,
and many, many others.
probably asking yourself how these stores help us raise money. It’s simple –
scrip participating retailers agree to sell gift certificates to our
organization at a discount. Member families like yours buy the certificates for
full face value, they redeem them for full face value, and our parish keeps the

that involves no selling…
- Our parish gets a regular source of revenue.
of scrip is that you put your regular household shopping dollars to work. You
earn money for our parish without spending a single additional penny. Just

in the scrip program! And scrip can be used for just about any household
purchase including food, clothing, entertainment, gasoline, and even dining
