Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Scrip Office is closed to the public. We are operating the Scrip Office as Curbside Service. The Scrip Office will be open on Tuesdays and Fridays from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.
Please park at the Scrip parking spot along the fence outside of the faculty parking lot. Call into the office to place your order. Please do not call unless you are present on the property. You may be asked by the volunteer to meet you at the Central Office door. CASH or CHECK (payable to OCS) is preferred payment.
What is Scrip?
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. Our school keeps the difference, called a rebate. We use the funds we raise from scrip to help families offset their out of pocket tuition costs, the OCS general budget and OCS needs-based tuition assistance.
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. This is money you are spending already! Every purchase you make will mean 70% of the rebate dollars will go toward your tuition. If you purchase a $100 card at 5% then you will have just earned $3.50 to go toward your rebate. That may not sound like a lot of money initially, 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… We keep cards in stock for most of the places you are spending money and shopping at already, both locally and nationally.
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 – a real concern in today’s world.
To get started earning, visit the Scrip Office located within the OCS Central Office at the rear of Owensboro Catholic High School 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!
