Meeting your Fundraising Obligation with SCRIP

Every family has a $400 per year, SCRIP rebate obligation. SCRIP is sold year-round with online orders and inventory sales here at school every other week.

How does SCRIP work?

SCRIP is a fundraising program for schools. Through SCRIP, school families purchase gift cards from a variety of businesses, including box stores, local retailers, gas stations, and restaurants, to name a few. The gift cards are sold at a discount of 1% to 20%, but are worth their face value. The difference between the discounted price and the face value of the card goes into the St. Mary Magdalen School General Fund as profit. For example, if you purchase a $100.00 Safeway gift card with a 5% discount through SCRIP, $5.00 is given to the school.
