How Does SCRIP Work?
This is the most important thing for you to know about SCRIP: IT COSTS YOU NOTHING!!!
"SCRIP" is a gift certificate/gift card from a participating merchant. St. Vincent's is able to purchase these gift 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 is no extra cost to you!
Why Should I Buy SCRIP?
Other than tuition, SCRIP is one of the largest single ongoing sources of funding for YOUR STUDENT'S EDUCATION here at St. Vincent's.
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, class trips, guest speakers, Grandparent's Day, Young Authors, nurse's clinic supplies, playground equipment, etc., as well as equipping the classrooms with much-needed supplies needed every single day.
EVERY FAMILY should participate in the SCRIP program so that we can continue to provide the excellent education that our students deserve and that our parents expect.
By buying gift cards for your everyday expenses, you are 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 cause....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. Send your completed order form and check to school with your student on one of these days; all orders are delivered to the SCRIP room, filled, and returned to the student to take home. Almost all orders are filled that same day, as we carry a very large amount of gift cards in our inventory at all times. The only exceptions are when an item is out of stock (backorder) or is a special order item (back page of order form). When this happens, you'll receive those items within 3-4 days.
You can also buy SCRIP at church on the weekends: Saturdays after 5:00pm mass, Sundays from 8am-11am and also after 6pm Lifeteen mass.
