TUITION REDUCTION INCENTIVE PROGRAM

(T.R.I.P.)


  • What’s TRIP you ask?
    TRIP stands for Tuition Reduction Incentive Program. This program is also known to some as SCRIP. It is a gift card fundraising program that is free to participate in and can raise thousands of dollars for your tuition.
  • Sounds great! How does it work?
    You purchase gift cards through Great Lakes Scrip at Shopwithscrip.com using an enrollment code to connect you to Calvary Christian School. You then pay, for example, $100 and receive a $100 gift card at one of the many retailers. The retailer offers a discount percentage to purchase the card which is split out between the participating family and the school’s administration fee.
  • So how do we make money?
    Calvary Christian has partnered with Great Lakes Scrip who acts on behalf of churches, schools and other non-profit organizations to purchase large amounts of gift cards from grocery stores, department stores, and other retailers. Because the gift cards are purchased with cash up front, the participating retailers offer a substantial discount. Our organization buys the gift card from Great Lakes Scrip at a discount, and re-sells the certificates to families like yours for the full-face value. The discount, ranging from 30% to 2%, is our organization’s revenue.
  • Count me in! How do I place an order?
    Orders are placed each Monday and delivered on Thursday. If you have a student in school, gift cards will be sent home with your student if you choose to do so. Otherwise, gift cards can be picked up in the school office after 2pm on Thursday.
