SCRIP Fundraising Program

SCRIP . . . Substitute Cash Rewards Individual Parishes - This program allows you to earn money toward school tuition or selected charitable areas within the parish. You do this by buying store gift cards and certificates through the parish rather than directly from the stores. No limit to the amount you purchase. The more you buy, the more you earn! Contact: Michelle Hagerman or online at (must be registered online first to order, print, &/or reload, even while on vacation!) or at all weekend masses (after 4:30 pm and 8:30 am & before 10:30 am).

Getting Started is Easy
Our Lady of Good Hope Church has a wonderful incentive program that enables the church and you (or another organization) to make money by just buying gift cards from the church at all the places you frequently shop. The program is called SCRIP.

Almost all retailers participate in the program. The order form shows you the participating retailers. The percentage of return ranges from 2% to 20% depending on the retailer. You buy the gift card at face value and the profit percentage is then divided 50/50. The church allows you to choose where you would like 50% of the return to go (i.e. tuition, St. Vincent dePaul Society, most need of the Our Lady of Good Hope, etc). The church automatically receives the other 50%. Your profit money is paid out once a year in April.

Many people start small with a grocery card (Meijer, Walmart, Fresh Thyme), gas cards (Marathon, BP, Walmart, Speedway, Shell, etc) or drug store (CVS, Walgreens, Walmart, Meijer, etc) cards for their prescriptions. Others buy SCRIP as quick gifts for family and friends far and near. Since it is the same as cash, it can be used anywhere they have a store, even online. You can check online at to see a variety of retailers not in this area that participate in SCRIP for your vacation and travel needs. Please also be aware that some may need to be pre-ordered a week in advance, while others are always on hand for last minute needs.

You may purchase SCRIP gift cards on the weekends following the 4:30 p.m. & 8:30 a.m. Mass or before the 10:30 a.m. Mass. You can also email an order anytime, and order online at, where several gift cards can be printed from your own printer or emailed (once you have PrestoPay set up). This can be a very beneficial program for the church; it just takes you to participate.
