Scrip – Another Way to Give
Welcome to our Scrip Program! At UMC Vista, our Scrip Program is a simple and effective way to support our mission and make a difference. By participating in our Scrip Program, you can contribute to our organization’s Children and Youth Programs while going about your regular shopping routine.
These profits are designated to capital expenditures for our children and youth. For example, the play structure, all of the furniture in the children and youth rooms, as well as half of the classroom video systems were purchased with SCRIP funds.  We buy these gift cards at a discount from the merchants, and the difference is used to fund this important aspect of our ministry.
What is Scrip?

Scrip is a fundraising initiative that harnesses the power of everyday purchases. It involves purchasing gift cards or certificates from popular retailers, such as grocery stores, restaurants, gas stations, and online platforms. These gift cards carry their full face value, meaning you can use them for your personal shopping or gift-giving needs. All proceeds go to our Children and Youth Programs.


How does it work?

  1. Purchase: You can buy gift cards from our organization or at the Scrip Table before or after our Sunday service. These gift cards are available for a variety of retailers.

  2. Retailer Rebates: When you purchase a gift card through our Scrip Program, a percentage of the card’s value is donated back to our organization by the participating retailer. This rebate can range from a small percentage to a more significant amount, depending on the retailer.

  3. Fundraising Impact: The rebates we receive through the Scrip Program directly contribute to our organization’s financial goals. The funds generated help us support our programs, initiatives, and community projects, enabling us to make a positive impact in the lives of those we serve.
