Columbine Unity's grocery scrip fundraising program has earned our church nearly $2,000 in each of the last two years. A simple way to earn money for the church, we buy gift cards from local grocery stores at a five percent discount, and then sell them to you at face value.
This does not require you to spend extra money. You simply purchase your card at church and then use it in the store as you would any gift card.convert your money into a different form which facilitates a donation from the grocery store to Columbine Unity. The more money you convert to scrip, the more the store donates.
You can purchase scrip for King Soopers, Vitamin Cottage, Safeway, and Sprouts. Most stores carry a fifty dollar denomination, except for Safeway which is offered in a ten dollar denomination. Both King Sooper and Safeway cards are reloadable, meaning you can reload them directly at the store and we get a check from the store for 5% of whatever you load on it.
People often ask about Whole Foods, Albertson's, Walmart, and Costco, but they only offer a one percent discount, and we don't do enough volume to make it worthwhile.
