What is Scrip? It’s fundraising while you shop! Parish members can purchase gift cards for most retailers, and St. Francis of Assisi School earns money with each scrip card purchase. Scrip gift cards are the same gift cards you can purchase from retailers. Scrip cards can be purchased for grocery and department stores, gas stations, restaurants, hotels and home improvement. More than seventeen thousand nonprofit organizations all over the country are taking advantage of scrip fundraising, and you can too. By simply planning ahead on everyday purchases, the average family can earn at least $11 a week. That modest number adds up quickly. It’s easy for a family to earn $500 - $1,000 in a year, and many families earn much more! The more families participating, the bigger the earnings for our school. Please contact Jennifer Finegan, School Office, 503-357-6990 to learn more, or to make a scrip purchase.
