SCRIP is a wonderful fund-raising opportunity for our parish that does not require any added out-of-pocket expense for its participants. SCRIP is gift certificates that are bought in bulk from merchants at a discount of between 2% and 20%. The gift certificates are in turn sold at face value to parishioners who redeem them for merchandise at full face value of the certificate. The discount the merchant gave on the bulk purchase of the certificates becomes the profit for St. John the Baptist Church.
You can use SCRIP for purchasing your Birthday, Christmas and other gifts or easier yet, just give SCRIP gift certificates as your gift. You can purchase SCRIP certificates before and after each Mass on the weekends, or for your convenience, you can also print out the order form and bring it in to save time if you wish.
Programs such as SCRIP allow you to buy what you would normally buy anyway
with a percentage of your purchase going to the church at no extra cost to
you. All it takes is a little planning and a few minutes of your time to
purchase the certificates. For example, simply purchase a SCRIP gift
certificate and pay your weekly grocery bill at Cub Foods and a percentage of
your purchase goes to
