Using scrip gift cards to make purchases you routinely make doesn’t cost you a dime! Buying Scrip Gift Cards make an excellent way to help the church while making routine purchases from groceries to clothes to school, office or craft supplies to movies. If you give gift cards for holidays and birthdays, why not buy them from the church? There are over 200 local and national stores and restaurants from which to choose! No minimum order! You can order $5 or $5,000---or more! It’s as simple as using a gift card instead of your credit card, check, or cash.
Pick up a scrip order form on the Opportunity Table in the Narthex anytime. Conveniently fill it out at home and return it, along with your check, to the wooden box on the table. Orders are filled the first Sunday of the month, but you can order anytime! If you prefer to pay by credit card, go to our website and click on the donate button on the homepage. Select the donation button and you will go to our online donation page. Put the total amount of your Scrip order in the "Special Giving" box and then identify the transaction as "Scrip" in the next box. Just make sure the amount matches your order. It's as simple as that. You are going to spend the money, so why not help the church at the same time!
As a Bonus: When you use your SCRIP cards to order online with iGive you double your contribution to EWPC.
Here’s an example:
- $100 Macy’s Card = $10
- $100 Macy’s online purchase = $.80
- Total Contribution to EWPC = $10.80
As an Extra Bonus: When you buy a Scrip card to Amazon and purchase an item online with iGive you are using three different ways to contribute with one transaction.
Here’s an example:
- $100 Amazon Card = $4
- $100 Amazon Purchase = $.50
- $100 Amazon linked to iGive = $.80
- Total Contribution to EWPC = $5.30
These donations can add up quickly without doing anything more than you would have before.
