Volga Christian School

SCRIP

The SCRIP Program is a fundraiser and tuition reduction program.  When you purchase SCRIP you purchase a gift card or e-card that is used just like cash.  The SCRIP is issued by national and local retailers where many of you already shop.  You can use SCRIP to purchase every day things like food, clothing and other items.  As you use SCRIP it helps reduce your tuition or the tuition of a grandchild or a friend and earns money for the school.

The SCRIP tuition can be credited to your account up to twice a year depending on your tuition payment schedule.  These payments are credited in the months of September and March.

The SCRIP program started in May of 1997.  Last year, the SCRIP program earned $1500.00 for the general fund and over $1000.00 toward tuition and future tuition.

Anyone can participate in the SCRIP program.  If you do not have a family you wish to designate your earnings toward, you can elect to have the full percentage donated to the general fund.  SCRIP accounts can also be set up for future students of VCS.

With the SCRIP program, you do not spend anything extra, because you are getting certificates for stores you would normally shop at.  The national retailer's certificates can be used at any store nationwide so they also make great gifts for far away family and friends.

The National Order is due the 1st Friday of each month. The Local Order is due the 3rd Friday of each month. The forms may be turned into Mrs. Hosmer.

Orders may also be placed on-line using the website www.shopwithscrip.com.  Instructions for registering are provided on the website.  To get the code that is required or if you have problems/questions contact Mrs. Hosmer.
