Interested in tuition incentives?  Consider Scrip!

Scrip is a gift card program that is so easy to use! 

How much do you spend on groceries?  How often do you put gasoline in your vehicle?  Everyone needs these things frequently.  Why not pay with a gift card that earns tuition credit!   The school periodically receives statements, and the fees that you have earned will be deducted directly from your monthly tuition statement.

You can purchase a gift card to grocery stores, home improvement stores, restaurants, department stores, gas station, entertainment... there are over 700 participating businesses.  For a list of the most popular 700 businesses, go to  

Getting the cards is easy.  We stock some in the office at St. Rose.  If we do not have it, we can order it for you in a couple of days.  You can order them online too.    If you order online, you can pay using PrestoPay which is similar to PayPal.  

Don't forget... Scrip cards make wonderful gifts!

Tackling Tuition with Fundraising

If you attended a parochial school when you were younger, or your kids do now, you already know the benefits: 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.

To help with these costs, your school probably holds traditional fundraising events. While bake sales, auctions, and product fundraisers are all popular, you could see your earnings soar by starting a Scrip program. Scrip is a powerful fundraising tool that enables families to raise funds just by doing their everyday shopping – no selling required! 

Scrip Makes Sense for Parochial School Parents

When families buy Scrip gift cards through your 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 1.5% and 14%, 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 uniforms, 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 their household spending.

Why Parochial Schools Love Scrip

Your organization’s administration will love the benefits that come with a Scrip program:

  • No asking families to sell unwanted or unnecessary products to family and friends.
  • Earnings add up fast! It's easy for a single school family to generate $600 to $1,000 or more per year.
  • Everyday family purchases become consistent earnings for your school.
  • Families are motivated to earn tuition credit.
And the benefits for participating families are fantastic too:
  • 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%).
