FundScrip Program

FundScrip is a fundraising program here at the Lambeth United. It encompasses the purchase of gift cards for major retailers and a rebate is paid back to the church. In a nutshell, by using pre-bought gift cards for some of your regular purchases, the program will give money back to Lambeth United Church!  How effective is FundScrip?  Collectively we have earned $13,578.59 since we joined the program.  We thank everyone who has participated and recognize the Mayo, Sullivan, Polgar, King/LUC and Pickering families who have each topped the $1,000.00 figure that their collective 300+ orders have earned totalling just over $6,000.00.  Every card helps – think of those ‘prayer miles’ you are earning.
Here is a video describing the program:
