What is Scrip?

Scrip is a well established and unique program designed to help nonprofit organizations and their members benefit through rebates from hundreds of participating retailers on the face value of their gift cards.  Categories include gas, grocery, home improvement, electronics, books restaurants, pharmacies, discount retailers and many more.  Rebate proceeds are split 25/75 with each participating family.  25% goes to support St. Matthias School.  75% goes to the family to choose from the following options:

  • You may designate your rebate as a charitable (tax deductible) gift to St. Matthias School.
  • You may designate your rebate to go to a particular child or family at St. Matthias School as a tuition credit. (Tuition credit applies for the next school year.)
  • You may designate your rebate to pay for Christian Formation fees or for family tuition at another parochial school.
  • You may receive your rebate in a check made payable to you. Rebate checks are paid out once per year in mid May. ($50.00 minimum to receive a check.)
