Scrip is a fundraising program we use at OCS through which the school purchases gift cards and certificates at a discounted rate and sells them at face value. This discounted rate is what we term your rebate. The Scrip program is designed to fund raise on everyday purchases. With numerous, wide-ranging local and national retailers participating, you are able to purchase and use gift cards and certificates at places you already frequent. Not only are you earning money back by buying scrip, you also limit your personal information from data breaches and credit card fraud by using these gift cards at retail stores and for online purchases.
Every purchase you make will mean 70% of the rebate dollars will go toward your tuition. If you purchase a $100 card at 5% rebate then you will have just earned $3.50 to go toward paying down your tuition. That may not sound like a lot, but it’s important to remember, every little bit adds up. Think about it; groceries, gas, clothes, utilities, dining out, some medical expenses, vet bills etc. … This is money you are spending already! We keep cards in stock for most of the places you are spending money and shopping at already, both locally and nationally. The other 30% of the rebate funds help with scrip administrative costs, maintaining an inventory and to help fund our OCS needs-based tuition assistance.
To get started earning, on this Scrip page is a button, “Scrip Enrollment”, which will take you to a form that allows you to submit your information. (Ideally, you’ll want to do this from a laptop or desktop computer.) The “Scrip Order Form” button on the Scrip Page is a downloadable PDF of the current list of gift cards and certificates that we keep in our inventory. The percentage listed on each vendor is the rebate they offer. We can get cards for other national brands, but they need to be ordered and are usually a one week turn-around. There are also links to videos from RaiseRight, our supplier, on our scrip page to explain some of the features they offer. See our Scrip FAQ page to read answers for some of the most commonly asked questions about the scrip program.
Visit the Scrip Office located within the OCS Central Office. Central Office is located at the rear of Owensboro Catholic High School at the ramp under the green awning. The phone number for the Scrip Office is 270-478-1796. Our wonderful volunteers can talk you through the ordering process and offer some tips and tricks to help you make the most of the rebates available. Once in the habit, we think you will find buying and using scrip couldn’t be easier!
