Helping our Parish Educate


Would you like to earn rebates that will be applied toward your family’s tuition? Our HOPE Certificate Program is a fundraising program that works while you shop and helps with tuition!

HOPE Certificates are gift certificates or gift cards from participating national and local retailers. The local businesses that support our program are Casey’s,  Dollar Fresh Hy-Vee, Dr. Reedy, Emmetsburg Irish Gifts, Fareway, Kwik Star, North Iowa Lumber, Pizza Hut, Pizza Ranch, Subway, Sum Hing, Swanson Hardware, Rita Rezabek-Mary Kay. There are too many national supporters to list them, but there is a wide variety from Amazon, Buffalo Wild Wings, iTunes, JC Penney, Wal-Mart, Kohl’s, Menards, Maurice’s, and Target. Do you shop at any of these businesses? If yes, then you can earn rebates to be applied to your tuition. The most popular national businesses are listed on the order sheet but there are others. To see a complete list, visit the scrip website at www.shopwithscrip.com

You can sign up online, go to www.shopwithscrip.com , family sign up, fill in a few spaces, associate your name with ECS. You can also sign up for Presto Pay which allows you to pay online. There is also an app! Orders can be sent with your child to school, dropped off at the school or Parish office or placed in the offering basket at Mass. You will be notified when your order is ready, you can pick up your order at the school office or it can be sent home with your child. Be sure to tell all of your family members they can order and help with the tuition of your family!

When you buy HOPE Certificates/cards from ECS, everyone wins. The retailer sells ECS the certificates at a discount of 2-10%, you buy the cards from ECS at face value and use at the retailer. The retailer gets cash for purchases up front and repeat business, you participate in fundraising without having to sell anything or buy something you don’t need or won’t use! You and ECS earn a source of revenue to use toward tuition and tuition assistance.

These are retailers we all use; the advantage to using HOPE certificates/cards is being able to help continue the Catholic Education for our students. It’s so easy!

Thank you for your support!
