+ What is the Benefit?

By making your purchase of SCRIP cards and certificates through St. Malachy School, rebates are earned.  This rebate is a discount given by a vendor in exchange for the funds (usually from 2% to 15%).  This rebate is the revenue generated to benefit you AND St. Malachy School.

+ What is Scrip?

Scrip is a term meaning “substitute money”.  When you purchase scrip, you are buying negotiable gift certificates and prepaid cards that are used just like cash.  

Parents, this is NOT just another fundraiser.  It is your opportunity to generate dollars which are used to reduce your own tuition with monies you normally spend everyday on groceries, clothing, hardware, gas, and many others products and services!!!! This is a voluntary use program where you decide your level of participation.

The Scrip Program cycle follows the calendar year (January to December).  Scrip rebates earned will then be applied to your tuition account by the following Spring.
