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 40% of the profit earned on their scrip purchases.   The remaining profit earned helps meet the St. Bernard School fundraising requirements, supports projects benefiting St. Bernard School students and families and covers the operating costs of the program. 

 

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 June. GRACE applies the credit to your unpaid tuition balance. 

A new scrip agreement must be completed each school year.  For the 2020-21 school year credits earned from June 1 to December 31, 2020 are applied to the 2020-21 tuition. Credits earned from January 1 to May 31, 2021 are applied to the 2021-2022 tuition.

 

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 Nonschool Family and Transfer 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 (Fundraising, scrip, forms, Nonschool family and transfer agreement) https://www.saintbernardgb.com/scrip/fundraising-scrip-forms/  .  Completed forms can be emailed to me at scrip@stbernardcong.org or sent to 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 eCard that you can buy and receive 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.  St. Bernard sells the cards to you for full face value and you redeem the cards for full face value.  The difference is a rebate and is split between the school and your family tuition obligation.  As an added benefit, grandparents, siblings, parents, aunts, uncles and friends can purchase Scrip and complete a scrip agreement to transfer the rebate to your account.

QuickScrip is the Scrip we keep on hand every day.  The vendors include a variety of vendors. 

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 1:00 p.m. on that Thursday. There are over 750 vendors available for ordering.  A list of retailers is available on shopwithscrip.com.
