Scrip Program Information
(for families of students enrolled in Kindergarten through Grade 8)
Scrip is one of St. Bartholomew Home School Association (HSA)’s biggest fundraisers. Scrip are gift cards we sell through the school that the HSA purchases at a discounted price from a vendor or from the individual stores. We sell the gift cards at face value, so if you purchase a $100 gift card for a store, you get a $100 valued gift card. The discount we get from the store is our profit. We offer a large selection of gift cards that can be purchased throughout the year and during the Christmas season we offer a special holiday selection. The program is a dollar-for-dollar fundraiser and it does not you cost anything to participate.
Each family's commitment (Grades K through 8 only) is to purchase $2,500 of Scrip. A work bond check in the amount of $250 is due at the time of registration. Your check should be dated April 1, 2022. The variety of gift cards we carry in inventory make it convenient for you to reach your $2,500 buy-out. Although the amount may seem unreachable to some, the reality is that you only need to purchase a minimum of $50 per week to achieve this goal. The Scrip buy-out period begins on July 1, 2021, and ends on June 30, 2022, for the 2021-2022 school year. Scrip is sold on a weekly basis throughout the school year and during the summer months. The dollar amount of the scrip purchased during this time will be applied to your buy-out. Once you reach your $2,500 buy-out, the work bond check that you submitted with your registration forms will be returned to you. If you do not reach the buy-out by June 30, your work bond check will be cashed. During the school year, you will find the Scrip order form in the communication envelope on our website or under the tab marked “Scrip.” Send your order form in with a check made payable to SBS HSA with your child in an envelope marked “SCRIP.” You will receive your gift cards in your child’s folder. It’s that easy.
Scrip can be used to purchase anything that you purchase with cash. For example, you can pay for your groceries, clothes, Kohl’s charge card bill, and restaurants. If you need to purchase a large quantity of scrip for a specific retailer ($500 or more), i.e. Home Depot, because you are doing a project at home, please inform the Scrip Coordinator ahead of time so that the inventory is not depleted.
Scrip is an easy and very profitable fundraiser for our school. If you have any questions, please contact the School Office at 732-254-7105.
