The Northwest Ohio Scrip Association (NOSA) is a
not for profit organization set up to serve schools, churches and other
non-profit organizations and major US and local retailers through innovative
scrip fundraising programs.
The West Toledo Parochial School Parents Association (WTPSPA)
sister program is a not for profit organization set up to serve thousands of
families in the Toledo Area. The WTPSPA assists them in fundraising to help
alleviate the financial burden of a parochial and private education.

newest technologically advanced software available for scrip program
administrators. This program offers convenience and flexibility, while
providing Scrip 2000 users the familiarity they are used to without the need to

WTPSPA began in 1998 when Andrew Ranazzi recruited 17 other
families to participate in a scrip fundraising program to assist them in funding
their children’s parochial school education.
Since 1998, the WTPSPA has assisted thousands of families and
schools in fundraising more than $1,000,000 and helped retailers with tens of
millions in sales.
The WTPSPA continues to grow in leaps and bounds. Diane Fockler a
participant and volunteer in the WTPSPA joined Andy in late 2001. Together they
recruited many local merchants to participate in the NOSA program. Since then
several branches or off shoots of the WTPSPA have been set up around the Toledo
area to offer local scrip convenience for the families.
NOSA began in 2002 and only by accident. Our largest supplier had
backordered several very popular scrip Christmas gift cards which disappointed
many families. Also many non-profits contacted us about providing them with the
local merchant’s scrip.
NOSA currently serves more than 150 local area non profits.
NOSA offers merchants direct access to hundreds of thousands of
motivated, loyal scrip using families, churches, schools and other not for
