Each family is responsible for a $400 per year SCRIP rebate obligation. SCRIP is available for purchase year-round, with online orders and inventory sales held at school every other week.

SCRIP is a fundraising initiative designed for schools. Through SCRIP, families can buy gift cards from over 750 popular brands, available in various formats including eGift cards (instant delivery), physical gift cards, and reloadable gift cards. With each gift card purchase, you earn a rebate of up to 20%. This rebate is generously provided by the brand you purchase from, as their way of supporting organizations and communities like St. Mary Magdalen Catholic School. For instance, if you buy a $100.00 Safeway gift card with a 5% rebate through SCRIP, $5.00 is donated to the school, contributing to your rebate obligation.

Begin utilizing this program regularly and promptly to facilitate reaching your goal effortlessly. SCRIP is open to everyone, not solely school families. We urge you to encourage your relatives, friends, and colleagues to also purchase SCRIP. Any purchases made under your name will contribute to your fundraising credit, so spread the word!
