SCRIP fundraiser

The SCRIP fundraiser is back and better than ever!
Just in time for Hanukkah!!

You can give a gift to your loved ones and to Temple Etz Chaim at the same time!

It’s hard to believe, but Hanukkah is just around the corner! You can do all your shopping and give a big gift to Temple Etz Chaim simply by using SCRIP to purchase all the gift cards you’d buy anyway. The temple earns a percentage of each and every card sold!

Three ways to shop:

  1. NEW this year, you can even buy online! Here is how it works:
    • Go to
    • In the upper right corner, click “Join a Program”
    • You will be asked to enter an Enrollment Code. In order for Temple Etz Chaim to benefit from your purchase, you MUST use: 5F7EEB63614L1
    • Create a User Name and Password and enter your address etc.
    • You will be asked to enter a phone number so they can send you a verification text. This is for your security!
    • You will be given the option to sign up for PrestoPay. This is a proprietary, secure, method for online payments. If you’d rather pay by sending a check to the temple, you can hit the “x” in the upper right corner of the box
    • If you elect to sign up for PrestoPay, you will be asked to enter your checking account number and your bank’s routing number. SCRIP does not take credit or debit cards!
    • Once completed, you will see the following message: In 1 – 2 business days, check your registered bank account for the two deposits from Great Lakes Scrip Center, and make a note of the amounts. You’ll verify your Online Payments (PrestoPay™) account by clicking the Payment Types link on your Dashboard, and then you’ll be enrolled.
    • Once you are verified, you are all set to shop by clicking on “Shop” at the top of the page!
    • You now have access to over 700 stores, theaters, restaurants and other vendors!!
  2. If you would rather not pay online, you can still place an online order – you will just need to send a check for the total to Audrey at the temple.
  3. If you would rather not shop online, please contact Emily and she can send you a list, which you can return to Audrey with your check.


  • Some of the cards are refillable! Just add more money via your dashboard!
  • There are some “e-cards” available! You can use them right away or send them to anyone on your gift list via email!
  • All the gift cards are shipped to the temple, you don’t pay shipping or postage! Emily will contact you to arrange delivery!
  • If you shop online, you can set up shopping lists for items you order weekly or monthly, and schedule reminders so you’ll never forget to place your order.
  • You can send this information to all your friends and family – and they can help support Temple Etz Chaim too!

Best of all, this is now an ongoing fundraiser!

You can order SCRIP and support Temple Etz Chaim at any time throughout the year
(orders will be processed monthly)

Please email Emily Berman with any questions!

Happy shopping and thank you for your support!
