SCRIP Fundraising

What is SCRIP?

SCRIP is a program that allows you to credit money directly to your tuition account by ordering gift cards and certificates for the stores and restaurants that you regularly use.

How does it work?

The school purchases gift cards and certificates for a variety of retailers from the Great Lakes SCRIP Center at a discounted rate. The school, in turn, credits the percent discounted directly to your tuition account.

  • Here’s an example of how you could save by purchasing gift cards for things already included in your budget:
  • Meijer or Payless $200 3% discount = $6 credit
  • Walmart $100 2% discount = $2 credit
  • Speedway or Family Express $100 4% discount = $4 credit
  • TOTAL CREDIT = $12.00 that is credited to your tuition

So, by purchasing gift cards for the stores and restaurants where you already shop and eat, you can reduce your tuition bill! SCRIP may also be purchased by family and friends and they can designate the credits they earn to be credited to your tuition account to save you even more money. It is good to note that some gift cards have expiration dates. Many of them can be used to make on-line purchases, but most cannot be used to pay off-store credit cards.

A full list of participating retailers and details for each retailer can be found at www.shopwithscrip.com.

Volunteers

We need volunteers!! SCRIP is a great program that directly benefits the families here at Faith, but it takes volunteers to keep the program up and running. 

If you have any questions about SCRIP or would like to volunteer please contact Marsha Mathews at 765-491-3087 or online.
