The Stewardship Fundraising Program is the school’s central fundraising effort. The funds generated from the stewardship fundraising program go into the general fund. They help cover general operating expenses, such as salaries, building payment, utilities, etc. These items would otherwise have to be covered by large increases in tuition. The program is designed to generate revenue in a way that is easier on a family’s budget than substantial tuition increases.
Scrips are gift cards to almost any retailer or restaurant! The scrips (or gift cards) must be purchased through the school and used at the specific merchant for which they are purchased. The purchaser receives a gift card for the full amount of the purchase price and the school receives a percentage from the vendor. There are both local and national vendors who participate. You can go to the Scrip website at www.shopwithscrip.com to find a detailed vendor list and even purchase cards directly online (Request Enrollment Code)!
