This program has been established to reduce your tuition costs and raise money for school improvements.  It is called TRIP or SCRIP.  It works while you shop and it costs you nothing!  TRIP is an acronym for Tuition Reduction Incentive Program.  In the past decade this program has been adopted as a fundraiser by many private schools across the United States, including St. Joseph Catholic School and Our Lady of Fatima Parish School.

This is how it works. We purchases gift certificates (SCRIP) from a broker or local business at a discount varying from 2% – 50%.  We then sells the SCRIP at face value.  The percent discount is the profit.  One half of the profit is credited to the buyer’s (family’s) tuition and the other half is used for school improvements.

For example: We receive a discount from a company called “Great Lake Scrip Company.”  We then apply 1/2 of the savings to the student’s tuition and 1/2 to a savings account for the school.   Therefore, if you ordered $100 of SCRIP from Rocco’s, who gives the school a 10% discount, you would write a check for $100 to SJHS, receive a gift certificate for $100 to Rocco’s, have $5.00 credited to your tuition and $5.00 would be added to the school’s improvement account.

If you have any questions, contact 304-525-5096.
