WHAT IS SCRIP?
The SCRIP PROGRAM at Holy Trinity School is a means of raising funds for Catholic education. Proceeds earned from the purchase of SCRIP are used to help families pay their tuition for Holy Trinity Preschool and School or West Catholic High School. All school families, as well as parishioners, are strongly encouraged to participate in the SCRIP program to the fullest extent possible. (Why not? It’s free!)
The word “SCRIP” means substitute money. At Holy Trinity, SCRIP consists of gift cards/certificates to a wide variety of merchants that can be purchased at face value. Since the church purchases SCRIP in volume, the merchants give us a discount. There are no hidden costs to SCRIP purchases. For example, when you purchase a $25 GAS CARD to SPEEDWAY, you pay exactly $25 for it, and it is worth exactly $25 when you use it. In this transaction $1.00 is earned since SPEEDWAY pays 4% on their cards purchased through SCRIP.
