What is the Scrip Program?

Did you know you can donate money to Congregation Shaare Emeth without spending an extra penny? Scrip is a program where companies provide gift cards to nonprofit organizations, such as Shaare Emeth, at a discounted rate. Nonprofits then sell the gift cards at face value keep the difference. Each participating retailer/merchant offers the nonprofit a different margin of profit, as indicated on the Shaare Emeth Scrip Order Form.

Example 1: A Once-in-a-While Order

Jesse loves Starbucks and enjoys drinking her favorite drink, a soy chai latte, a few times a month. Because she’s going to spend money at Starbucks anyway, she buys a $25 Starbucks gift card (for the normal $25 price) from the Temple Office. Jesse drops by and gets a new Starbucks gift card every time she needs one. She didn’t spend an extra penny, and yet Shaare Emeth earned money! Starbucks offers a 7% profit to Scrip program members, so Congregation Shaare Emeth receives $1.75 every time Jesse buys a Starbucks card from Temple.

Example 2: An Automatic, Monthly Order

Tzion already buys groceries and pet food at Dierbergs, Whole Foods, and PetSmart every month. He sets up an automatic order for $200 Dierbergs cards, $200 Whole Foods Market cards, and $50 PetSmart cards. He doesn’t spend more that he already would have, and yet he knows part of that money benefits his chosen Jewish community. As the order form shows, the profit rates for Congregation Shaare Emeth for these companies are: Dierbergs 5%, Whole Foods 3%, and PetSmart 4%. In effect, Tzion donates $18 a month and $216 a year FOR FREE.
