The following programs describe two easy ways to contribute to the school by purchasing items you already buy!
Scrip is a gift card or gift certificate for businesses frequented by St. Benedict School parents and parishioners. Scrip is purchased by St. Benedict School at a discount and sold at face value as a means for fundraising. The school gets a percentage of the scrip value ranging from 3% to 25% depending on the vendor. The gift cards and gift certificates are used like cash to purchase anything from groceries, clothing, books, toys, and gas to dining and home improvement goods. Every purchase you make will benefit the school at no extra cost to you.
Each family is encouraged to participate in the program. Purchases can be made in several ways:
- at the scrip table outside the office on Wednesday and Friday mornings
- through the scrip poly-envelope included in your Thursday Envelope each week
- in the Vestibule at the Parish 8:00am, 10:00am, and 7:00pm Masses on the 1st and 3rdSunday of every month.
Scrip Standing Order Form [PDF]
Standing orders are a great way for families to participate in the scrip program on a regular basis without having to remember to purchase scrip on sales days. The Standing Order form allows families to order items they use regularly such as grocery, coffee, gas, etc. They can have the order ready for them 1 or 2 times/month on the 1st / 3rd Thursdays of the month. Standing orders can be paid for with post-dated checks, through online bill pay or ACH, or using credit cards. Credit card fees may apply and are noted on the form*. For additional information contact email@example.com
Special Order Form [PDF] (updated for 2015)
We can make orders with Great Lakes Scrip for the items found on the Special Order Form. The turnaround on special orders varies depending on our ordering schedule. If you would like to make an order that is time sensitive, please note that on your order or contact Elizabeth McDowell: firstname.lastname@example.org to get a good idea of the turnaround time for your order.
Scrip Order Form 2015 [PDF]
The items found on the Scrip Order form are items that we try to keep in-stock on a regular basis. If there is a retailer that you purchase from regularly and would like to see it added to our inventory, please send your suggestion on to Elizabeth McDowell: email@example.com . The scrip committee can then determine if it is an item we are able to carry.

eScrip is another simple and easy way to raise money for St. Benedict. eScrip contributes a percentage of your grocery loyalty card, credit card, and debit/ATM card purchases to our school. All you need to do is register one or more (or all!) of your cards with eScrip for use in the program at the secure eScrip website. Contributions will automatically be deposited to the school’s account for purchases made on registered cards. Every purchase you make will benefit the school at no extra cost to you.
