Scrip Overview Flyer

What is SCRIP?
SCRIP is a term that means "substitute money." When you purchase SCRIP, you're purchasing negotiable 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 Parish and School!

How it works!
The SVdP Women's Guild purchases gift cards, to have on-hand, from a variety of retailers at a reduced cost (can be up to 2 to 15% or more). The Guild then sells the gift cards at face value to the Parish and School families who want to participate. The difference is kept as revenue.

What's the catch?
There is no catch! You simply purchase SCRIP gift cards at face value and use them as cash to purchase your everyday needs.

Where does the Revenue go?
St. Vincent de Paul Parish and School families will buy the gift cards at face value, the Women's Guild keeps the difference as revenue and we split (50/50) the revenue with the families that participate. Families will receive their revenue in the form of a Tuition Rebate for the following School Year's tuition.

What if I do not have a student?
No students at SVdP School – no problem! You can have your rebate distributed to another family that attends SVdP School or your rebate will go 100% back to the Parish and School.
