Scrip Cards

In 2017, the Scrip Program gave Trinity Church $941.02 of income. That seems like a nice number, but when you consider that only a fraction of parishioners use scrip, you realize that that number can be way higher. If more people buy more scrip cards, Trinity will make more money - it's that simple.

 

This is FREE MONEY that is just like found money. Here is an example. Your Senior Warden just purchased two cards - $100 for Shop Rite (good for using at Price Rite) and $100 for Shell. He will use these cards each time he goes to Price Rite and Shell. Now the scrip company donates a different percentage for each company; in this case, they will donate 4% for Shop Rite cards and 1.5% for Shell cards, so $5.50 will be donated to Trinity. But your Senior warden still gets to spend 100% of the money he spent on the card.

There are hundreds of participating retailers - locally, nationwide and online. Click here to see the current list of retailers. Now consider where you shop: supermarkets, drug stores, department stores, gas stations, restaurants, online stores... You purchase a card for any amount, you spend the card for that amount of merchandise, and Trinity Church magically receives a percentage of that purchase.

 

Crazy, right? You buy the cards at face value, you spend the cards at face value, and Trinity Church gets a percentage - anywhere from 2% to 10% or more, as it varies from company to company.

 

Please try with just one card, and then you will see how easy it is to purchase more cards and shop in a way that delivers FREE MONEY to Trinity Church.
