FUNDSCRIP is back! Buy gift cards for your favourite retailers (just in time for Christmas card mail-outs) and the Fundscrip Program will donate a percentage of your purchase to St James at no cost to you.

You can order online anytime and receive your cards in 3-5 days (pay by credit card, bank transfer or online bill payment) 

To place an online order:

1. Follow this link:;

2. Set up an account and verify it by clicking the link that will be sent to your email;

3. Choose your cards. I found the easiest way is to look by category (in the top menu bar) or simply use the search to find the store or online retailer that you want;

4. Once you are ready, check out and pay by credit card, electronic funds transfer (required registration by logging into your online bank account) or pay by electronic bill payment to Fundscrip/Fundstream using the account code that will be provided if you choose this option (It’s fairly easy);

? BIG TIP Lettermail is free (even though it says $1.05 it should reduce to 0 at final checkout). But you can only order 4 cards at time to be sent in an envelope (or a max of $500 worth). So, if you don’t want to pay the $22 for shipping (and seriously, who would?!) you’ll have to checkout after every 4 cards you select. It sounds annoying, but it’s not that bad. Once you do your first 4 you know the drill and can blast through the rest. You can avoid this altogether if you order digital gift cards. These cards can also be reloaded, which is convenient if you want to top off your gift cards throughout the year.

The cards arrive in 3-5 days. If you have questions, contact
