What is SCRIP?

SCRIP (Substitute Currency Reaps In Profits) is the ONLY ongoing fundraiser for our school.

We don't sell wrapping paper, candles, or candy bars because we choose not to....SCRIP is a much more effective fundraiser.

How Does SCRIP Work?

The most important thing for you to know about how SCRIP works is this: IT COSTS YOU NOTHING!!!

"SCRIP" is simply a gift certificate/gift card from one of our participating merchants (see order form for current list of merchants). St. Vincent's is able to purchase these gifts cards from the merchants at a discount, then offer them for sale to our families at face value. The discount offered by the merchants then becomes our "profit" and is the only component that makes this a fundraiser for our school.

When you purchase gift cards for items that you would purchase anyway, such as groceries and gas, you pay face value and receive face value...there's no extra cost to you!

Why Should We Buy SCRIP?

Excellent question.

The answer is simple: Other than tuition, SCRIP is one of the largest single ongoing sources of funding FOR YOUR STUDENT'S EDUCATION here at St. Vincent's School.

We need the funds generated by SCRIP sales to pay for enhancements and enrichments that aren't included in the school's regular operating budget. SCRIP proceeds reduce and/or eliminate your costs for things such as field trips, guest speakers, class trips, Grandparents' Day, Young Authors, nurse's clinic supplies, playground equipment, etc. as well as equipping classrooms with much-needed supplies.

EVERY FAMILY should participate in the SCRIP program because EVERY FAMILY benefits from the SCRIP program! This will help us to continue to provide the excellent education that our students deserve and our parents expect.

By buying gift cards for your everyday expenses, you're helping the school AT NO EXTRA COST TO YOU! You can also earn tuition credits to offset your costs! It's a WIN-WIN.....why WOULDN'T you buy SCRIP?

Sounds Like a Good Idea...How Can I Place an Order?

SCRIP is sold at school every Monday and Friday. Order forms are available at school and on our website under "Current News." Send your completed order form and check to school with your student on Monday or Friday; all orders are delivered to the SCRIP office, filled, and returned to student to take home. Note that you also have the option of picking up your order in the office instead of sending it home with your student...just mark your order form "pick up in the office".

Nearly every order is filled that same day, as we carry a very large supply of gifts cards in our inventory at all times. The only exceptions are when an item is out of stock (backorder) or is a special order (back page of order form). When this happens, you'll receive those items within 3-5 days.

You can also buy SCRIP at church on the weekends: Saturdays after 5:00pm mass, Sundays 8-11:00am, and also after Lifeteen mass.
