Scrip Program

 

What is Scrip?

  • It's a national fundraising program. You can purchase gift certificates for stores, gas stations and restaurants, and those retailers return a percentage of the total to Schaeffer Academy.

How much money does Schaeffer Academy get?

  • The return averages about 6% of the total you spend.  Scrip raises approximately $12,000 per year for Schaeffer Academy.
  • The rebate percentage varies per retailer, and with bonuses and other specials, certain rebates can be as high as 18%. 

Why should I buy Scrip?

  • Half of the Scrip rebate always goes to the school, so you're helping Schaeffer Academy.
  • Buying Scrip can make money for your family.  You can choose to receive half of the rebate earned on your Scrip purchases as a tuition credit or a cash refund. Some families have been able to earn enough for a one-month tuition payment.  Rebates are credited to your tuition account or refunded to you on an annual basis in August.
  • Friends and family can purchase Scrip and designate their half of the refund to be credited to your tuition account. 
  • Instead of receiving a tuition credit or cash refund, you can choose to donate your half of the rebate back to Schaeffer as a tax deductible donation.
  • You are not spending any more than you normally would at the gas station, grocery store, retailer or restaurant of your choice.  Just plan ahead and get your Scrip gift cards and use them when you make purchases.
