The SCRIP Program at Saint Vincent’s School is a mandatory all-school participation program. This program was implemented in the 2009/2010 school year. By making this change, Saint Vincent’s eliminated its fall giftwrap fundraiser.
Each family is required to purchase $250 per month in scrip over 10 months or $2,500 during the school year (this is accumulative). Though this may sound like a lot, all families typically purchase goods and services monthly in excess of this amount. SCRIP facilitates these pre-existing spending patterns. Families who wish to opt out of the program can do so by writing a check to Saint Vincent’s for $250 (each school year) or $25 can be added to the monthly tuition contract.
SCRIP cards are purchased and operate like cash
SCRIP cards are available through a national provider and are available for dozens of local retailers. Grocery Stores, Gas Stations, Restaurants and Retailers are included on the diverse list of SCRIP participants. The value of scrip is that it pays a percentage back to the school so dollar for dollar St. Vincent’s sees financial benefits. For example, a family buying a $100 scrip card to a grocery store will receive a $100 value in the form of a gift card. The grocery store contributes 5% or $5.00 of the gift cards face value to our school. The percentage varies by retailers ranging anywhere from 1% to 10%.
An important element of the SCRIP program is it does not require any additional purchases outside your existing family budget. In fact, the SCRIP program can assist families to further budget monthly expenditures; assigning set spending to categories such as food, gas, dining and clothing.
