Fundscrip is a gift card based fundraising method for St. James United Church. By purchasing gift cards through this program, members can raise money for the church without spending any more than they normally would on groceries and other shopping.
How does it work? When you buy a gift card through the Fundscrip program, the store for which you bought the card will donate 3-5% of the value of the card to St James United Church. The percentage of the donation from the store coincides with the fees that they would have otherwise paid to major credit card companies. You get the full value of the gift card, and the church receives much needed funding.
Fundscrip requests are collected after service on the first Sunday of each month. Cards are delivered the following Sunday.
