Scrip is a great program that will benefit all the members of Peace Lutheran Church and School and will not cost you a single penny!! Stores and restaurants you already patronize will donate a percentage of what you spend back to Peace. We're not asking you to buy anything you wouldn't ordinarily buy. What we are asking you to do is to pay for the things you buy with SCRIP instead of cash, check or credit card.
What is SCRIP?
SCRIP is a substitute for cash in the form of gift certificates and/or prepaid cards which you could go out and purchase on your own directly from retailers (both local and national). SCRIP is easy to use, and in most cases there is no restriction on how it can be used.
How does the program work?
Peace Lutheran Scrip purchases gift certificates/cards from the merchants at a discount. You purchase a gift certificate/card from Peace Lutheran Scrip at face value giving Peace the difference as profit.
How much can Peace Lutheran earn from the SCRIP program?
The potential is amazing! If 1/3 of the total church and school families used Scrip for only gas and groceries, the annual profit could be $30,000. Imagine the total if everyone participated and if SCRIP was used for additional necessities!
I'd like to participate in SCRIP. What do I do?
We keep most local & national vendors available for immediate purchase - or - Obtain a Scrip order form (they are available outside the School Office or at the Information counter.) Fill out the form and return it with your check or money order to the School Office by 10:00 a.m. Monday of the week to be ordered. Order forms turned in to the School Office too late for submission will be held until the next order date unless otherwise instructed. Orders will be purchased and filled by Thursday of the same week and will be available at the School Office or sent home with the school children as indicated on the order form.
SCRIP Tuition Credit
Families using the SCRIP program can earn tuition credit. 50% of your SCRIP earnings will be applied toward your family’s tuition for the upcoming school year. You could earn enough to offset your entire tuition!
Family and friends may designate 50% of their SCRIP earnings to the account of a PLS student. Family and friends should sign a family designation form to indicate the account they wish to support. A family designation form must be on file with the SCRIP office before such designation begins. Only one such designation can be made per family during the SCRIP year. PLS families may have any number of SCRIP designators linked to their family’s account.
Earnings from June 1, 2014 – May 31, 2015 will be applied to tuition for the 2015 - 2016 school year. If you are planning to send your children to Peace, start using SCRIP now, even if they're not in school yet!
Thank you for your participation. If you have any questions, please contact the School Office at 623-2200.
