SCRIP Program

Start Using the SCRIP Program!

What is it?             
Scrip is simply gift cards for retailers, restaurant's and services both local and nation-wide.  Instead of using cash, checks or your credit card when you purchase goods or services, you use your Scrip gift card.  The great thing about Scrip is that you can use it for everyday purchases like groceries, gas, prescriptions, gifts, etc.  You won't be spending any more money than you already do.  You will be helping to raise funds to support St. Mary Portage Catholic School.

How does it work?
The SCRIP program allows the school to purchase gift cards and certificates in bulk at a discount.  The SCRIP retailers offer discounts varying from 2% to 20%.  Parishioners and school families buy SCRIP from St. Mary at face value and the school receives the benefit of the profit.  For example, ACE HARDWARE cards are available at a 4% discount - when you purchase a gift card for $100, the parish receives $4. While it doesn't seem like much by itself, purchasing $100 worth of KOHL'S each week for a year generates $208.
