We are very excited to have a SCRIP program at Sanborn Christian School!

SCRIP is simply a word that means "substitute money".  In other words, SCRIP is gift certificates from national and local retailers. These retailers include: Sanborn Foods, HyVee, Fareway, Fiesta Foods, BP gas stations, Sanborn Hardware Hank and many other local businesses. National businesses include: WalMart, Target, JCPenney, Kohls, Old Navy, Staples, Menards, Comfort Inn, Best Western, McDonald's and many others. 

SCRIP participating retailers agree to sell gift certificates or gift cards to Sanborn Christian School at a discount. Member families like yours buy the certificates for full face value, they redeem them for full face value, and Sanborn Christian keeps the difference as revenue. 80% of this revenue is put directly into your child's tuition account or another's account that you specify (refer to attached registration form). 20% is kept by the SCRIP fund for operating costs and maintenance of the SCRIP Cash & Carry program.

The beauty of SCRIP is that you put your regular household shopping dollars to work. You earn money for tuition without spending a single additional penny. Just spend your regular shopping dollars with SCRIP at the stores that participate in the SCRIP program! SCRIP can be used for just about any household purchase, including food, clothing, gas, and dining out. 

To learn even more about the SCRIP program, please read more about it by clicking on the "What Is SCRIP" link.  In order to join the program, you will need to complete a registration form for each family participating and agree to the policies set forth by the committee.  Registration forms are available in the school office.  Encourage your friends and family to become SCRIP users!
