SCRIP

SCRIP Program Overview 20-21

SCRIP CAN LOWER TUITION AND SUPPORT ST. BERNARD SCHOOL

St. Bernard school families can earn a tuition credit of 45% of the profit earned on their scrip purchases.   45% of the profit earned helps St. Bernard School meet their fundraising requirements and counts toward your 3rd source funding requirement of $550 per school family.  10% of the profit earned covers the operating costs of the program.  You will have the option to waive the tuition credit and designate 90% of the profit earned toward the 3rd source fundraising requirement.  You can also transfer your scrip earnings to another St. Bernard school family.

 

HOW DO FAMILIES RECEIVE THE TUITION CREDIT? 

St. Bernard school families must complete a St. Bernard school family scrip agreement. The scrip agreement indicates how the rebate is distributed and provides contact information. Family scrip purchases are recorded and the credit is paid to GRACE in January and May of each year. GRACE applies the credit to your unpaid tuition balance. 

A new scrip agreement must be completed each school year.  For the 2021-22 school year, credits earned from May 1 to December 31, 2021 are applied to the 2021-22 tuition. Credits earned from January 1 to April 30, 2022 are applied to the 2022-2023 tuition. The form is available on the school website St. Bernard School scrip forms

CAN FAMILIES AND FRIENDS EARN CREDITS FOR SCHOOL FAMILIES?

Yes. Grandparents, siblings, parents, aunts, uncles and friends can purchase scrip and request that the earned profit be transferred to a St. Bernard school family.  They must complete a St. Bernard Scrip special designation scrip agreement.  They do not have to complete a new form each year.  Their designation remains in effect as long as the school family has a current scrip agreement on file and the family attends St. Bernard School.  

The form is available on the school website St. Bernard School scrip forms Completed forms can be emailed to scrip@stbernardcong.org or sent to Scrip Coordinator, St. Bernard Parish SCRIP, 2040 Hillside Lane, Green Bay, WI 54302

 

SCRIP:  WHAT IS IT?

Scrip is a fund-raising program.  It’s fundraising while you shop, and you won’t have to sell anything.  Scrip fundraising gift cards are the same gift cards you would normally purchase from a retailer in your local retail stores, and they work the same way.   Scrip is also available as an eGift card for some vendors that allow you to buy and receive your eGift card instantly at your email account.

 

THE BASICS:  IT’S EASY

Using Scrip couldn’t be easier.  Your family purchases gift cards for places you plan to shop, and uses those cards instead of cash or credit.  St. Bernard buys those gift cards at a discount and sells the cards to you for full face value. You redeem the cards for full face value.  The difference is a rebate and is split between the school and your family tuition obligation.  

QuickScrip is the Scrip we keep on hand every day.  The vendors include a variety of vendors.  See the order form for current Quickscrip vendors and denominations at St. Bernard School scrip forms

Special Order Scrip is scrip that is not held in inventory. Special orders are placed with the scrip provider on Monday mornings and are typically available after 11:00 p.m. on that Thursday. There are over 750 vendors available for ordering.  A list of retailers is available at  ShopWithScrip.com at the bottom of the page under Quicklinks.

eGift cards are not physical scrip cards but are online cards that appear in your Wallet for your online account and in the RaiseRight app.
