SCRIP - Update #1
SCRIP Program 2019-2020
Tuesday Update - 9/10/19
Welcome to the weekly SCRIP email; starting this week and running for the next couple of months, we will send a weekly update on Tuesday's to help you understand, set up and begin using the SCRIP program at St. Matthew Elementary. These emails will be concise and allow you to follow the steps necessary to get started and effectively use this system to benefit you in the form of a tuition benefit for the 2020-2021 school year, but also to help subsidize tuition at St. Matthew in upcoming years.
This is a lengthy explanation into the who, what, where and why's to SCRIP; however, know that we will break each of these pieces into smaller, more understandable terms each week.
We are beginning the SCRIP program at St. Matthew as we continue to search for creative ways to help families ensure that tuition is affordable. SCRIP has a history in many of the other Xavier Catholic Schools and has been done with great success, providing a sizable tuition benefit to families, as well as an income generator for the St. Matthew community. The best part about this program, it does not require that you sell anything or spend additional dollars. Instead, this program operates through the purchase and use of gift cards for the stores that you already shop at.
This program can be used by you, the parent/guardian, but can also be shared with family and friends; these individuals can indicate that the proceeds from their purchase be applied to your child' tuition account at any Xavier Catholic School. A form indicating whose account should be credited is attached here, please make sure we have this on file for anyone purchasing SCRIP through St. Matthew. If we receive an order and do not have this information, we will reach out and ask the individual requesting SCRIP to complete the form.
You can purchase gift cards 2 ways:
- after you check out, this electronic gift card will be in "Your Wallet" on the dashboard screen. You can print and use whenever you would like.
- these orders will be processed on Monday at 10AM and delivered on Thursday via your preferred method as indicated on the Scrip Form
Beginning immediately and running
continuously throughout the school year and summer.
Initially, SCRIP is available online through the link below; however, in the coming months you will be able to purchase some local SCRIP gift cards, in person, in the main foyer at St. Matthew Elementary School. More details to come, stay tuned.
Here is how this program works:
Shop online (or in person, when available) for gift cards.
You will notice when you select a gift card, there will be a percentage indicated; this is the amount that is split 50/50 with you and St. Matthew.
The system keeps track of this amount and at the end of the reporting cycle, we will send you a final statement that includes the amount of tuition benefit you will receive for the following school year; in this case 2020-2021.
All physical gift orders in our system by Monday at 10AM will be processed for the week
; anything submitted after this time will be processed the following week
Orders that were processed on Monday and gift cards will be delivered via your preferred method (as indicated on the form) on Thursday of that same week
