Scrip is a unique fundraiser that enables families to earn money for the Parish and/or their school/religious education tuition through the sale of gift cards.
How It Works
St. Susanna works with the Great Lakes Scrip Center (GLSC) to order gift cards on a weekly basis. The Great Lakes Scrip Center offers a wide selection of gift cards from America’s favorite retailers. GLSC works with partner retailers to offer hundreds of gift cards with substantial rebates. St. Susanna buys the gift cards from Great Lakes Scrip Center at a discount, and re-sells them to Parishoners for full face value. This discount – from two to fifteen percent or more – is a rebate retained by St. Susanna. Up to 50% of this rebate can be used towards the next year’s tuition or Religious Education, while the remainder (minus a 5% administrative fee) is a tax deductible donation to the Parish. (A Family Agreement Form must be signed and on file in order to receive rebate benefits.)
Rebates will be calculated up through March 31st and distributed as per your agreement for the upcoming school year.
Say I buy a $25 Applebee’s gift card. Applebee’s offers an 8% rebate per gift card. Therefore, $2 will then be split between tuition/religious education and the Parish (as per your agreement). Now this may not seem like much, but it begins to add up each time you purchase cards for dining out, groceries, gas, travel, etc.

Order online at www.shopwithscrip.com and pay online via Presto Pay (a .15 fee will be assessed for PrestoPay purchases).
