It’s simple -- scrip participating retailers agree to sell gift cards to STHS at a discount. Member families like yours buy the certificates for full face value, you redeem them for full face value, and our church keeps the difference as revenue. And scrip is exciting, because everybody wins: it’s the fundraising program that works while you shop!
We sell the scrip twice a month before each of the weekend services on the first full weekend of the month and the third weekend. You place your order that weekend and your cards will be given to you the following weekend.
The beauty of scrip is that you put your regular household shopping dollars to work. You 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 dining out.
Below is a full list of Retailers who participate in the program:
Get started by downloading the order forms:
The easiest and quickest way of ordering scrip electronically is to set up a PrestoPay account. This is an account that withdraws funds from your bank account for your orders, just like a debit card. PrestoPay is a secure online payment system. Your scrip Coordinator cannot see anything about your bank account information.
Reload option: This allows you to add money to a physical gift card you already have in hand. You simply register the card online and pay for the amount you want to add.
When Reload orders are placed and paid for before 3:30 pm EST, Monday through Friday, the funds will be added to your card overnight when using PrestoPay.
If you pay by check, the funds will be on your card the day after the order is released by your Coordinator. Contact Louann Elledge at 314-892-5424 or firstname.lastname@example.org or Stacy Steketee at 314-752-5649 or email@example.com so your order can be released as soon as you issue a check to STHS for your purchase.
ReloadNow(TM) option: For some retailers you can add funds to your cards even faster with ReloadNow(TM). When you pay with PrestoPay, funds will be added to your card in minutes, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. If you pay by check, the funds will be on your card minutes after the order is released by your Coordinator.
