SCRIP Fundraising

Help fund Zion's elementary (J-Force), middle, and senior high ministry programs by using SCRIP!!

What is SCRIP?
SCRIP is a fundraising program that does not “sell” products to families. No cookie dough. No pizza.  No pink flamingos. Instead, families purchase gift cards to the stores in which they find themselves shopping regularly from Zion Congregational Church at no additional cost. The goal is to have families use gift cards purchased through our SCRIP program to make every day purchases (i.e. things they were going to spend money on anyway). The church purchases the gift cards from the Great Lakes SCRIP Center at a reduced rate and sells them to families at face value, keeping the difference to fund Zion’s elementary, middle, and senior high ministries. SCRIP is a very real fundraising ministry. Please join us and help raise money for Zion’s elementary, middle, and senior high ministries.

How do I order?
1. Check  the Retailer List to pick which gift cards you would like to order.
2. Print and fill out a Scrip Order Form.  Or, you can order online (scroll down for instructions).
3. Return the completed order form with payment to Zion Congregational Church

Completed order forms and payments (checks made to: Zion Scrip) can be returned to Zion Congregational Church or mailed to:

Zion Congregational Church Scrip Fund
PO Box 577
Treynor, IA 51575
 

Orders will be processed and turned in with the next bulk order from GLSC.  You will be notified when your gift cards have arrived.

Here's the breakdown:

STEP ONE
1.  Plan ahead!  Figure out where you will be shopping in the next several weeks/months.
2.  Pre-Order your gift cards before or after Sunday worship time.  You pay face value (i.e. a $20 gift card will cost you $20).  The gift cards are exactly the same retailer cards that you can purchase for a store.  Depending on the retailer, the church will get to purchase the cards at a reduced rate (often 2%-20%), using the difference to fund our elementary, middle, and senior high ministries.

STEP TWO
The order cut-off is usually the first Sunday of each month.  After church that day, all the orders that have been placed since the last order date will be compiled and sent in.  All gift cards will be available for pick-up the following Sunday.

STEP THREE

1.  Go shopping where you always shop, spending the money you were going to spend anyway--but using your SCRIP gift cards.  SCRIP IS AN EXCELLENT WAY TO DO CHRISTMAS SHOPPING AND HOME IMPROVEMENTS!!
2.  With just a little pre-planning, you could buy all of your groceries, gas, dining expenses, home improvement costs...all with SCRIP gift cards!

STEP FOUR
1.  Feel GREAT, knowing that you are raising funds for the elementary, middle, and senior high ministries at Zion.
2.  Get ready to RE-ORDER, and do the whole process again.

SCRIP is an EASY way to fund real ministry!  Don’t forget that you can buy groceries with SCRIP as well.  We’ve worked out agreements with Fareway, Hy-Vee, and Family Fare. Have a large family dinner soon--use SCRIP!

THANK YOU for partnering with Zion in funding J-Force, Middle Ministry, and Senior High Ministries!  We appreciate your help very much.  Our youth programs at Zion are SOLELY FUNDED through SCRIP proceeds.  We thank you and need your continued support!!
