SCRIP Program Info
How it Works
SCRIP is another word for GIFT CERTIFICATE. Our school purchases these certificates at a discount, and then we resell them at face value. Think of it as a corporate sponsorship of our school. If you spend $20 in cash to purchase groceries at Safeway, THEY get $20. On the other hand, if you use $20 SCRIP for the same purchase, Safeway only gets $19 for those same groceries, and WE get the other dollar! This program lets the dollars that families ALREADY SPEND work for our school.

When to Order
You may place your order online at any time through the All Saints School website. It will be available for pick up in the location that you selected. (Please allow about three days for processing.) Please submit your payment when you pick up your order. Make checks payable to All Saints School. If there is a problem with your order, please contact the school office at 253-845-5025.
Open SCRIP sales are available every morning and every day after school at both campuses.
The 2016-2017 SCRIP commitment is $2,000.00 for each family. Families also have the option of buying out their SCRIP commitment at $250.00, which needs to be turned in when you turn in your enrollment contract.
Father John Griffin of St. Vincent in Santa Rosa, California, founded the original SCRIP program. Their high school was considering closing its doors due to financial reasons. The first retailer to offer a bulk discount for gift certificates was Safeway. To benefit other schools like St. Vincent, Fr. Griffin established The National SCRIP Center. After Safeway, many other retailers were added to the program. The National SCRIP Center and other SCRIP companies help nonprofit organizations in several states raise funds for their schools.
All Saints School began its SCRIP program in July 1995. We make deposits to the school operating account throughout each school year. These funds go directly into operating accounts, helping pay day-to-day expenses and salaries.
Our school is registered with the Great Lakes SCRIP Center. Through this clearing house, we have the purchasing power of over 3,000 non-profit organizations and schools. Unfortunately, not all retailers belong to programs like these. We are thankful for several local businesses that have joined our program. You may visit the Great Lakes SCRIP Center website to view the complete national retailer list. If you see a retailer listed that we are not currently offering on our ordering menu, and you would like to see them added, please make your request known.
