Give money to Temple Shalom...without actually giving!
What Is the Temple Shalom Scrip Program?
The Scrip Program is a fundraiser for Temple Shalom that costs you nothing. Scrip is a term that means "substitute money". When you purchase Scrip from Temple Shalom, you're purchasing gift cards and gift certificates from major retailers that are used just like cash. Temple Shalom offers Scrip from a wide variety of stores - from Supermarkets, to clothing stores, to book shops and restaurants. And with every purchase of Scrip you make, you make money for Temple Shalom!

Click on the buttons above to see a list of participating retailers. Since gift cards are used just like cash, in the vast majority of cases, you are still entitled to take advantage of all sales and promotions from a retailer. Some retailers even allow the use of gift cards to pay off charge accounts. Most cards can be used both in a retailer's stores and for online shopping through their Web site.
How does Scrip Generate Revenue for Temple Shalom?
Temple Shalom purchases scrip at a discount and re-sells the gift cards and gift certificates at face value. The difference in price - which varies among participating retailers from 1.5% to 15% or more - is our organization's revenue.
Example: Temple Shalom purchases a Shaw's gift card for $97 and sells it to you for $100. You get the full face value of $100 when you shop at Shaw's and the Temple earns $3
