What is SCRIP? Scrip is an ongoing fundraiser for St. Francis Home and School that gives you the opportunity to purchase gift cards at face value to places you regularly visit (grocery stores, gas stations, retail stores, restaurants, hotels and many others) while earning money for the school and your family.
How does it work? St. Francis Home & School purchases gift cards at a discount and then sells them at face value. The difference is then distributed annually as follows:
30% of the rebate is credited to either your family’s tuition account, tithing account, or donated back to H&S (per your designation on your family agreement) See Form link below.
70% of the rebate is credited to SFA Home and School
Example: Purchase a $100 Earl May gift card at face value. SFA Home and School purchases that card for $90 (a 10% rebate). From that rebate, $3 is credited to your family’s tuition or tithing account and $7 is credited to SFA Home and School.
Where can I buy Scrip? Scrip can be purchased one of the following ways:
Print and complete the order form from the link below and send it to school with your child along with a check payable to SFA Home and School. Orders are processed on Mondays and will be sent home with your child at the end of the week. Orders received after 10 am on Monday will be processed the following week.
Purchase Scrip from our in-stock inventory after mass during Coffee and Donut weekends.
Stop by the office during the week to place an order or purchase cards from the current inventory. In-stock cards typically include: Hyvee, Fareway, Kum & Go, Caseys, Target, Panera, Granite City, Starbucks, Subway, Scheels, GAP, itunes, and various others.
Order scrip online anytime at www.shopwithscrip.com. Please note that these orders will still be processed on Mondays and sent home on Friday with your child. This is a convenient way to order and gives you access to even more vendors that are not listed on our form! First time users will need to set up an account.
When you order online you have two methods of paying:
Send a check payable to St. Francis Home and School in your scrip envelope to school with your student.
Pay online with Presto Pay. PrestoPay is a convenient way for you to pay for your order on-line at the time you place your order. With PrestoPay your payment will be electronically deducted from your checking account.
Once you have successfully enrolled, and verified your bank account information, you will have the option of paying for your order with PrestoPay. When you choose PrestoPay, Great Lakes Scrip Company will debit your bank account for the amount of your order plus a small convenience fee of $0.15 on the day you place your order. Your scrip coordinator is notified of your payment and your gift cards will be delivered at the end of the week.
Please note: Orders cannot be processed until payment is received.
How do I receive my rebate? Rebates are accumulated January through December. Family rebates totaling more than $10 will be distributed at the beginning of each calendar year and credited to your tuition, tithing, or back to Home and School (depending on your designation on the Enrollment Form).
