Gift Cards to Support

the Pastor’s Emergency Help Fund

Your everyday purchases can support the work of RUMC when you buy Gift Cards through us and the "Shop with Scrip" program.

For every card you purchase, RUMC receives a rebate and that money goes to the Pastor’s Emergency Help Fund, which provides assistance to our neighbors in need.

about gift card shopping

We usually have several cards on hand, which you can view by downloading our oder form:  Order_form.docx. In addition, you can find hundreds more card options by clicking on “Shop” at Let Tom Bird know if you would like him to order cards. Each time Tom places an order for plastic cards, there is a shipping charge of $8.50, so we ask that you add $.50 per total order to help cover that cost. Write “scrip” on the memo line on your check.

You may also join the RUMC online program, which allows you to print your own gift certificates or have them sent electronically to your family and friends. If interested let Tom know so he can tell ShopWithScrip to send you an email invitation. You may then sign up for PrestoPay where you can pay directly from your bank account or with a Visa or Mastercard. Having your own account allows you to take advantage of periodic bonus rebates, which sometimes exceed 10%. 

Something new from ShopWithScrip is the RaiseRight mobile app, which allows you to order plastic or electronic cards from your phone, and have cards delivered directly to your home or to your family and friends.

3 ways to purchase gift cards:

  1. Order plastic cards through Tom Bird who will deliver to your home.
  2. Open an account with to print gift certificates at home or have them delivered electronically to family and friends.  Email Tom for the enrollment code.
  3. Order plastic or electronic cards from your phone with the RaiseRight mobile app and have them delivered to yourself, family, or friends.

Other programs that contribute rebates to RUMC are AmazonSmile and Fred Meyer Community Rewards.


In addition to earning your own rewards points through Fred Meyer Rewards program, if you sign up for the Fred Meyer Community Rewards program RUMC can receive a quarterly rebate.


Amazon shoppers are encouraged to sign up for AmazonSmile, and have Amazon contribute a rebate to RUMC.


For both Fred Meyer and AmazonSmile rebate programs, the best advantage for RUMC would be to use a gift card to make purchases. That way RUMC receives two rebates, one from the gift card and one directly from the company.

Let Tom know if you have any questions.
