What Is Scrip?

Scrip is a term that means “substitute money”. When you purchase scrip, you’re purchasing gift certificates and gift cards that are used just like cash. You can use scrip to purchase everyday expenses like food, clothing, and other essentials, and with every purchase, you earn revenue for our Home and School Association and a tuition rebate for your family. Many popular retailers participate in our SCRIP program including Harter House, PriceCutter, JCPenney, Gap/Old Navy, Lowe’s, Pizza Hut, Subway, A&B Cycle, Houlihan’s and many, many others. Go to for a complete list.  

SCRIP can be ordered as physical gift cards and as electronic gift cars, or you can reload existing gift cards.
How SCRIP Generates Revenue For You

Our organization buys the scrip from Great Lakes Scrip Center and local retailers at a discount. We then sell the certificates to families like yours for full face value. The discount - from two to twenty percent – is split 50/50 between our Home and School Association and your tuition rebate (your tuition rebate may be used for preschool through 12th grade in the Springfield Catholic School System.) The SCRIP fiscal year runs March 1st through February 28th.

Real World Example

The Smith family places a weekly SCRIP order at They order $100 Price Cutter (3% rebate), $50 Harter House (5% rebate) and $100 WalMart (2% rebate). This purchase would make I.C. $3.75 and it would give the Smith family a $3.75 tuition rebate every time it is placed. This is money the Smith family would be spending anyway! If this order is placed 36 times (9 months of school), the school and the Smith family have each made $135.

What if the Smith family had also purchased SCRIP to go out to dinner, buy shoes/clothing, pet supplies, and home repairs? Imagine how I.C. and our school families could benefit if all I.C. families shopped with SCRIP!!!
