What is SCRIP? 

SCRIP is a very important money-making program for our parish and school community. It costs our families nothing extra, but earns much needed funds that help to offset the rising operating costs associated with St. Joachim's everyday activities. Our families can help just by buying SCRIP and making their regular household purchases - gas, groceries, clothing, prescriptions, gifts, etc. 


How It Works

St. Joachim purchases gift cards from a broker at a discount. Our families then buy the gift cards, either through the Wednesday Family Envelope, in the parish office, or after Mass, at FULL RETAIL VALUE and use them at FULL RETAIL VALUE. Instead of paying with cash or credit cards, our families use the prepaid gift cards when making their purchases. The money we earn from the discounted rates when we purchase the card act as a revenue for our community. Please see link to SCRIP Order Form below.

What's The Catch?

There is none! Purchasing and using SCRIP when you shop costs nothing extra to your family! If you purchase a $50 gift card, you get a $50 gift card and use the funds on the card until they are gone. Families do need to plan ahead a little and do their normal shopping with gift cards. SCRIP is a great budgeting tool, too!


Other SCRIP Programs

Grocery store community partner rebates are another great way to help our community without any additional cost to your family. If you shop at Ralphs, you can earn St. Joachim valuable funds each time you shop and swipe your club card. If you have a club card, you can go online and register it and designate St. Joachim as your community partner.  Each time you shop and use your club card to save money on your groceries St. Joachim receives a rebate! Please see the link below for instructions on how to register your cards. If you do not have a club card from Ralph's, please pick one up and register it today.

You can also sign up on to purchase your gift cards electronically and immediately.  Don't wait to purchase for the order form in the Wednesday envelope.  You can now purchase electronic cards on your phone while shopping or send them to family and friends as a gift. Once registered, you must also sign up for Presto Pay to pay for any purchases directly from your bank account.

Also, please take a moment to visit Register your debit or credit cards for automatic contributions for St. Joachim when eating out or shopping at Bristol Farms. Do my credit/debit cards make a difference? Absolutely! On average, eScrip members that add credit/debit cards to the program earn 50% more for their school or group than members who only register a grocery loyalty card. You will be registered for the eDining Rewards. Earn contributions just for dining at a participating restaurant.
