Scrip is a nationwide gift card fundraising program. Families purchase gift cards from both national and local merchants at face value. Sacred Hearts School buys the gift cards at a discount, and we pass the savings onto our Scrip fundraising program AND to families for their next year's tuition. In other words, the discount is divided 50/50 between a tuition credit, for your 2012-2013 school year, and Sacred Hearts School. Last year Sacred Hearts School sold over $560,000 of scrip and earned over $28,000. Of that profit, 14,000 went into our fundraising budget, and families received $14,000 toward this year's tuition. Your individual tuition savings depends on how often you purchase the Scrip gift cards.
See the list of national vendors at www.glscrip.com, or view our weekly newsletter to see who our local gas, food, restaurant, and other business Scrip providers are in the area. The percentage earned can be from 1.5% to 16% on purchases, with special bonuses throughout the year. The families who use Scrip weekly tend to earn anywhere from $200-$400 off tuition for the next school year!
Our procedure for ordering Scrip is as follows: Please enter your order online (Sat-Mon) at www.glscrip.com. Or you may fill out your Scrip Order Form (which can be printed from www.sacredhearts.k12.wi.us) and return the form, along with your payment, in the Family Envelope Tuesday morning. We will process all orders that are received by 9:00a.m. Tuesday morning and they will then be shipped to the school on Thursday and delivered that same day. Your orders can be sent home with a child or you can specify to pick it up in the school office. If we have Monday off then Scrip is done on Wednesday with a Friday delivery date.
Remember, this is a great way to reduce your tuition AND support Sacred Hearts!
