What is SCRIP?
SCRIP is a school fundraiser that benefits our school AND participating families! The concept is simple: our school purchases gift certificates from popular retailers at a discount through a SCRIP company (Great Lakes Scrip Center). Parents & supporters can buy the gift certificates from BCS at face value. Parents spend the SCRIP at the retailer, where it’s worth the full face value; they haven’t spent an extra dime to help the school, nor have they had to change stores. The school retains a part of the rebate percentage, and the family receives a part of the rebate to apply toward tuition and fees each year.
We place weekly orders via paper order forms and checks in the school office (use the Scrip Order Form), or for an even easier way to order, you can sign up for an account and order online with the payment being directly deducted from the account you designate. We also have a number of cards for popular retailers in stock which may be purchased during our “SCRIP Store” on certain days.
