Our Lady of Mt. Carmel participates in a fundraising program that raises money for the school through the sale of gift cards. SCRIP stands for "Substitute Cash Redeem In Person”. OLMC uses SCRIP as a way to raise funds for field trips, cultural programs, technology improvements, and more.
School families are required to meet a $175 minimum profit per year in gift card/eSCRIP purchases. Once the minimum is met, 50% of any additional profit is applied to their school account for tuition credit or to cover fees for the next school year. Many OLMC families significantly reduce their tuition expense with SCRIP.
What is SCRIP?
SCRIP comes in the form of gift cards or eSCRIP that can be used for everyday purchases and as gifts for family and friends. OLMC families can purchase SCRIP for retailers, grocery stores, and restaurants at face value and the school earns a percentage of profit from each sale. There is no additional cost to you - the denomination you buy is what you will have to use. Family and friends can also purchase SCRIP and credit the profit to your school account!
