What is Scrip
We are inviting you to become a partner with us as we start our new year in the Scrip Program.
Scrip - What is it?
Scrip is a program that enables our school to raise funds at no extra cost to our parents and friends. Scrip is a term that means “substitute money”. When you purchase scrip cards, you are purchasing cards that are used just like cash. For example, if you buy $25 at a particular business, your card is worth the entire $25 and the retail business donates a % of the value of the card to our school. The more you buy, the more they donate.
How does it work?
You can help by becoming a partner with us. There are four ways to participate in the Scrip program:
1. Buy cards in our office from a large inventory of cards on hand - no waiting.
2. Place an order on a paper order form. Turn it in with payment on Mondays in the Big Red Scrip Envelope. Your order will be ready on Thursday of the same week.
3. Place an order on-line at the Shop with Scrip website, www.ShopwithScrip.com Click on the word Register at the top right of the page; Join a Scrip Program, You will need to call school for the enrollment code to register. Then send payment to school.
4. Place an order on-line and pay with Presto Pay. (ACH) No credit card information is needed and the whole order and payment is done electronically.
To use Presto Pay follow these directions: after you register, click on Dashboard, then on the left, click on Family Functions, then Presto Pay and follow the on-line directions.
Any way you order, your cards will be ready on Thursdays and can be picked up at the office or sent home with a child in the Big Red Scrip Envelope.
Why would you do this?
You can use Scrip to purchase everyday expenses like food, clothing, gas and other essentials. Perhaps you need a gift for some special occasion, Scrip works great for that too. With every purchase, you earn revenue for HFS. Since these are purchases that you would already be making, it will be no extra cost to you, but a great financial benefit to our school. We have earned, on average, about $14,000 per year. Imagine if everyone ordered!
So, Scrip is easy! Give it a try!
Thank you for your support of Holy Family School.
