St. Robert Catholic School Scrip Program
Scrip is our year-round fundraising program. Scrip turns everyday shopping into cash for our school when you use Scrip gift cards to pay for typical purchases (like gas and groceries) instead of the usual credit/debit card or other payment.
Your Scrip program is $3,000.00 per year, beginning April 1 and ending March 31. You must meet $1,500.00 by November 1.
- For example, you order a $25 scrip gift card for Target. St Robert’s pays the vendor $24.38. The school gets the 2.5% difference while you only pay the face value of the scrip gift card! You have fulfilled $25 of your scrip obligation.
- All physical gift card orders are due by Monday, 3pm. They will be returned and processed by Wednesday morning directly through school or for pickup in the school office. If needed faster, please contact Lory Sangalang.
- To keep you updated with your scrip totals, auto-generated emails will be sent. One email address per family unless Lory is notified. These totals will reflect to-date totals for ShopwithScrip and Benefit. The eScrip information has a 1 month delay.
- For the ShopWithScrip enrollment code, please contact Lory. This information will no longer be publicly available. Only registered school or church families are eligible to participate in the physical card purchases.
