This revenue source was first offered in 1999. The Victory Voucher program has remained primarily constant: gift certificates and gift cards purchased at a discount and sold to parishioners for the face value with the difference between the parish purchase price and the face value returned to the parish as an important revenue source. The card is worth exactly what you pay for it, meaning there is no cost to you to participate in the program.
Along the way, the proram has added a 2% rebate program whereby parishioners can receive a 2% credit on all purchases. Credit may be directed to school tuition, youth ministry programming, Faith Formation fees, or other selected areas within the parish.
The Hy-Vee portion of this program also provides coupons that parishioners submit with each purchase made at the West Kimberly Rd. Hy Vee. By turning these in the parish receives 3% of your purchases. Coupons are easy to carry in your purse or wallet and eliminate the need to plan ahead to buy Vouchers.
Vouchers are sold on Sundays in the Gathering Space at church from 8-11 AM, at the Parish Office on Wednesdays, 1:30-4:30 PM, or by leaving a prepaid order at the parish or school office. Check out the order form to see the current local and chain retailers we keep on hand. Special orders are also welcome.
Become a Victory Voucher Captain:
Captains oversee sales on Sundays at church or Wednesdays at the Parish Office. Captains are assigned on a rotating basis and receive order forms, double-check the math, verify correct payment, and count out appropriate certificates to the purchaser. Financial wizard skills are NOT required. A willing spirit, comfort with cash handling and ability to interact with other parishioners will do! Basic computer skills a plus. Contact Steve or Char (391-8868) if interested.
The bright green order sheets can be found at the church entrances. You will find the Hy-Vee slips there as well.
If you want to specify a 2% rebate option, you’ll need to complete that form one time. The rebates are totalled from July 1 to June 30. If you choose the school option, you are usually notified of your credit in August.
