Scrip Information

Scrip is gift certificates that you use like cash at your favorite stores, gas stations and restaurants. You buy them from SMG and spend them as you wish. Scrip is a fundraiser for the SMG Home and School Board.  Because of Scrip, we don’t ask families to sell anything else as a school fundraiser.

Scrip is available for sale in the School office and after Masses the second and fourth weekends of the month (first three weekends in December).

Here is
a list of retailers that you can buy gift certificates for through the Scrip Program. There are a many national and local retailers who participate and the rebate they contribute is listed as well.

Why should I buy Scrip?

SMG pays a discounted rate for the gift certificates you purchase, SMG earns money and you earn credit towards:

  • SMG school tuition
  • Youth Ministry/Religious Education tuition
  • SMG’s Saving for the Future
  • SMG Youth Ministry/Religious Education Program.
  • School Families Needing Assistance.
  • Cash refund

How much can we earn?

For example, if you buy $100 Hy-Vee gift card, the rebate amount is 5%.  So SMG receives $2.50 and you are credited $2.50 towards SMG school tuition or other credit options above. 

If you only bought one $100 Hy-Vee gift card from Scrip per month for a year, you would earn $30 in tuition credit and SMG would receive $30 just for you buying the groceries you need with a Scrip gift card, but trust us, you’ll want to buy more!
