Scrip Program

Frequently Asked Questions

What is Scrip?

Scrip fundraising is a program that enables our families to easily satisfy their annual family fee and help raise money for Regis Catholic Schools.

Scrip is just another way to pay for everyday purchases using gift cards in place of cash, checks and credit cards.

Scrip is the largest ongoing fundraiser for Regis Catholic Schools and helps us significantly with funding tuition assistance and other general needs.

How does it work?

We purchase gift cards and certificates from local and national vendors at a discounted rate and sell them to you for full face value.

Here's an example...

Mrs. Smith needs groceries, so she buys a $100 Festival Foods gift card through the Regis Catholic Schools Scrip program, which we have purchased from the vendor for 3% less than face value. When Mrs. Smith checks out at Festival Foods, she pays with her gift card instead of using a credit or debit card. It's that easy! (Each retailer, both locally and nationally, has a different percentage discount.)

By using your existing household shopping budget to purchase Scrip, you don't have to sell anything or incur any out-of-pocket expenses to satisfy your family fee or to help support Regis Catholic Schools.

How are the profits distributed?

Families receive 50% of the profit from their Scrip purchases towards their annual family fee based on the normal Scrip profit percentage allowed by the merchant. Regis Catholic Schools receives the other 50%. (Using the previous example, the Smith family would earn $1.50 towards their family fee and Regis Catholic Schools would earn $1.50.) Each family at Regis Catholic Schools is responsible for a $250 annual family fee. Purchasing Scrip is an easy way to reduce this fee without spending any extra money. It's easy for a family to earn $500 to $1,000 in a year and many families earn much more!

As an added incentive to use Scrip, after a family has satisfied their family fee, their 50% profit is applied to next year's tuition at Regis Catholic Schools or to the cause of their choice at our schools.

What if I don't want my credit to go towards my family fee?

If you choose, you can have the 50% profit you earn from Scrip purchases go towards the supporting parish of your choice. You can also choose to use that money to support a specific part of the Regis Catholic Schools system. Please contact the Regis Catholic Schools Scrip Coordinator at scrip@RegisCatholicSchools.com for more information or to make arrangements.

Who can purchase Scrip?

Anyone can purchase Scrip! Grandparents, aunts, uncles, friends of the family or neighbors can all purchase Scrip and designate your family to receive the family fee credit. Please contact the Regis Catholic Schools Scrip Coordinator at scrip@RegisCatholicSchools.com for more information.

What if my child isn't in school yet?

No problem! You can start earning credit towards your family fee even before your child enters kindergarten! Please just let our Regis Catholic Schools Scrip Coordinator know if you would like to "bank" your Scrip credits to be used once your child is attending one of our schools.

When is the Scrip year?

The Regis Catholic Schools Scrip year runs from April 1 to March 31. We do this to better coordinate with the school year and to allow us to bill any families who have not satisfied their family fee through Scrip purchases before summer break.

Elizabeth Cerny, Regis Parent
"Regis Catholic Schools helps nurture each child's hopes and dreams and teaches them how to care for others and grow in their own faith. The teachers challenge their intellect by allowing them to fail and prasing them when they grow and learn how to accomplish what they didn't think was possible."
