Fundraising to get 4X more!

posted Nov 16, 2020, 9:51 AM by Jose Bermudez   [ updated Nov 16, 2020, 9:52 AM ]
We are happy to announce a new fundraising program at St. Therese.  Well, it’s not really a new program.  Some of you might be familiar with it from when St. Therese School participated in it a while back, but it has been updated due to COVID.  It involves buying gift cards and for each one purchased, St. Therese will receive a % back in a rebate with different percentages, ranging from 2% - 20%, from over 750 brands/stores.   Some of them are Amazon, Kohl’s, Target, WalMart, Penney’s, Meijer, Walgreens, CVS, Speedway, Starbucks, Burger King, Wendy’s, Subway, Outback Steakhouse, Sam’s Club, Jiffy Lube & Home Depot, as well as many other gas, grocery, dining, home improvement, electronic, sporting good & home décor places.  Visa, MasterCard and American Express cards are also available to buy & the usual $4 or $5 purchase fee is waived.

There are 2 options to order.  One is to pay by ordering & sending a check to the rectory to have your order processed.  The other way is to order online at ShopWithScrip.com on your computer or through the RaiseRight app available from the App Store or Play Store.  You set up an account with a secure PIN/password and link your bank account (for a small 15¢ fee) or use Visa, MasterCard or Discover (for a 2.6% fee) to pay for the gift cards you purchase.  For example, if you order a $10.00 card by using Visa, MasterCard or Discover there will be a fee of less than 30¢. Either way, you’ll need to enter our enrollment code so that St. Therese gets the rebate credit from your purchase.  If you choose to have eCards, they’ll be available almost immediately.  Due to COVID, 250 of the brands now allow you to choose to have the actual cards sent by mail to your house for a small transaction fee.  If you do not choose to have them sent directly to you, they will need to be picked up from the rectory.  If you sign up to receive emails, you will be notified of bonus offers.  We are planning on placing 2 group orders before Christmas.  The deadlines will be Friday, November 20 and Friday, December 11.

Although this might seem a little complicated, it’s really not.  It’s easy, secure, & convenient.  You buy gift cards like you so often do for birthday & holiday gift giving - or even to use yourself.  Then St. Therese earns money for each card purchased.  The money raised will help make up some funds that we missed out on by not having our annual festival and other fundraisers this year.  More information is available on ShopWithScrip.com or the St. Therese website or FaceBook or by calling the rectory and asking for Mary Arnold.

Don’t be left out!  Please plan on participating, making it a win-win situation for you & for St. Therese.  Since we have just signed up ourselves, our enrollment code might not yet be available for a few days.

Thanks in advance.
