St. John The Baptist School

Scrip

For the 2016-2017 school year, each family must purchase $3,600 in scrip beginning June 1, 2016 through May 31, 2017. That is roughly $300 a month in scrip purchases you can use just on groceries and gas alone! Purchasing scrip is an easy way for our school and parish to fund raise, and families don't have to spend an extra dime doing it.  Here's how our scrip program works: Our parish purchases scrip from popular retailers at a discount. Retailers are happy to give a discount on scrip because it guarantees them customers as well as advertising. Parents then buy the gift cards from the school or parish at face value. The difference in price is kept by the school as an easy way to raise funds. Parents spend the scrip at the retailer, where it's worth the full face value which means--the school earnings really add up! We offer the following scrip:  
 
Safeway (re-loadable) - $50
King Soopers (re-loadable) - $50
Sprouts - $50
Lucky's - $50
Walmart - $100

Home Depot - $25
Lowes - $25

Starbucks - $10
Whole Foods - $25

As families with children enrolled at St. John's, you are aware that our school is always in need of additional fundraising.  SCRIP provides an easy and painless way to support the school and other parish needs.  In contrast to event driven funding, SCRIP provides an ongoing stream of revenue but has virtually no impact to your budget. When shopping takes you to King Soopers, Safeway, Wal-Mart, Target, Lowes, Home Depot, and other major stores, all it takes for you to raise funds for St. John's is to acquire SCRIP for your purchases. Purchasing SCRIP from St. John's ahead of large home projects and regularly for recurring supermarket shopping may require you to manage some small reminders, but wholehearted participation from every school family will have a major impact in supporting our school.  Our St. John's SCRIP program offers a variety of grocery stores, restaurants, and retailers. For most of the year, SCRIP options are tailored to meet the bulk of your needs.  For Christmas gift-giving we expand the program for a limited time to include additional specialty vendors.  Besides paying for SCRIP with checks and cash, we also have the option of using your credit card by stopping at the front desk of the church. In this way you can support St. John's School and keep your loyalty points.  Everyone wins when the SCRIP program is supported.  It is a simple, straightforward way of benefiting our school. The next time you are headed out for coffee and shopping, don't forget your SCRIP!
