WHAT IS SCRIP?
Let your spending habits work for you at no extra cost! When you purchase SCRIP gift certificates, not only can you shop at your favorite stores and restaurants, you can also help reduce the cost of your family’s tuition.
Sheldon Christian School purchases gift certificates from large retailers and local businesses in bulk amounts at a discount, and then resells those certificates to families at face value. Sixty percent of the profits earned are used to reduce tuition costs for the individual families that purchased the certificates, while forty percent is applied to Sheldon Christian School’s general fund.
WHO CAN PARTICIPATE?
Whether you are a current family, a future family, a grandparent or a Sheldon Christian School supporter, you can participate in this great opportunity to save tuition dollars!
Sheldon Christian School parents receive the immediate benefit from this program while future parents planning to send their child(ren) to Sheldon Christian School can begin building a fund. The future monies earned are held by the SCRIP office and will be credited as a tuition payment when their child is enrolled in Sheldon Christian School.
Grandparents, friends and supporters of Sheldon Christian School can direct their credit to as many as four families or they can build up their credit for future use.
