We would like to introduce you to one of the fundraising tools for our parish/school. It’s called “scrip”, and it’s the fundraising program that works while you do your normal day-to-day shopping.
Scrip order forms may be submitted to the school with your child or placed in the collection basket at Church. Orders will be submitted on the following dates:
March: 1st, 15th and 29th
April: 12th and 26th
May 10th and 24th

What is SCRIP?
Scrip is simply a word that means “substitute money” in other words, scrip is gift cards & certificates from national and local retailers. They’re the same gift cards & certificates that you buy at the store. Many popular retailers participate in our scrip program including Wal-Mart, Kwik Star, Best Buy, Kohls, Pizza Hut, Red Lobster, Dick’s Sporting Goods and many, many others. In fact, we have over 730 vendors nation-wide!
How does purchasing SCRIP gift cards raise money for the school?
It’s simple — scrip participating retailers agree to sell gift cards & certificates to our organization at a discount. For example, if you purchase a $100 Wal-Mart scrip card, you will receive a $100 value scrip card. The scrip program purchased the $100 Scrip card for $91. The $9 difference is the profit for the scrip program.
What are the benefits of using SCRIP?
- Our church and school get a regular source of revenue.
- Once you spend $1,000 in face value of scrip, you receive a rebate of 2% on all your purchases. This rebate can be applied toward your tuition or you can receive the rebate back in cash or in scrip gift cards. **Plus, friends and family members can purchase scrip cards and apply their rebate toward your family’s tuition!**
Does my small percentage you earn on the gift cards really matter?
YES! Every purchase matters!
