Tackling Tuition

You already know the benefits of a parochial school: strong traditions, personal attention, and a focus on religious principles. A good religious education is important to many families, but high tuition costs can make it a challenge to afford.

Scrip Makes Sense for Parochial School Parents

When families buy scrip gift cards through our school’s scrip program, they’ll receive the full value of what they paid, and they’ll earn an immediate rebate percentage of what they spent – typically between 3% and 15%, depending on the retailer. Imagine taking your kids back-to-school shopping at Old Navy and earning 14%! You can use the proceeds to supplement the school budget, and families can receive credit for their earnings toward tuition and other expenses.

The tax code prevents other kinds of fundraisers from sharing proceeds with families, but not scrip . That's a huge incentive for families facing a tuition bill on top of other school expenses like field trips, books, and supplies. Scrip fundraising gives parochial school parents a way to make a dent in those expenses by shopping wisely and using scrip to pay for your household spending. Check out our potential earnings calculator and see for yourself how fast it can add up.

Use Scrip Every Time You Shop

We offer scrip for over 700 of the most popular stores used by school families, and we’re adding new ones every year. Families can use scrip to pay for gas, groceries, restaurants, home improvement, clothing, and entertainment.

  • Scrip gift cards are perfect for following a household budget.
  • Families can shop both in-store or online with participating retailers.
  • Scrip gift cards are just like using a credit/debit card, but without the fraud risk.
  • Scrip program earnings are greater than credit card rewards (typically 3 – 15%).

Scrip fundraising isn’t time consuming, which we know is important for today’s busy families. Especially since scrip fundraising programs can be year-round, there isn’t the stop-and-go feeling like other fundraising programs, which, again, makes it an extension of your everyday activities.

As we carry hundreds of brands, and offer different gift card options, there is scrip for everyone and almost every activity right at your fingertips. You can even purchase an electronic ScripNow card while you are at the store and use it when you are checking out! We know that time is of the essence, and scrip fundraising helps you make the most of it!
