What is SCRIP?
The Green Park Lutheran School Scrip Program provides GPLS families the opportunity to reduce their annual tuition and school fees by purchasing gift cards to your favorite brands to use for your daily purchases. A percentage of the purchase goes back to Green Park in a way that you specify as per the choices below, so you have control of the funds being distributed.
So, how exactly does this work?
Participants may choose to have 75% of earnings distributed periodically to one of the following options (the remaining 25% will be used to offset administrative costs of running the program):
-Tuition reduction or school fees for a specific GPLS family (including your own!)
-GPLS Tuition Assistance Fund
Example of Earnings:
Smith Family orders one $100 Walmart card with a 2% profit = $2.00
Smith Family orders one $100 Walgreens card with a 7% profit = $7.00
Total Profit = $9.00
75% of Total Profit goes to the Smith Family account = $6.75
25% of Total Profit goes to offset administrative costs of running the program = $2.25
What type of brands/stores can I purchase gift cards for?
There are over 700 brands/stores on the list to choose from! Top brands like Amazon, Target, Starbucks, WalMart, Bread Co, Apple, Disney, Southwest Airlines, CVS Pharmacy, Old Navy, Carnival Cruise, BP, Shutterfly, Xbox, Budget, Cheesecake Factory, Marriot, Double Tree, Dunkin, Holiday Inn, Oberweis, Delta, and many more.
How do I use the gift cards?
Gift cards can be used just like cash at the participating business.
Can I give the gift cards as gifts?
Yes! Absolutely. It’s a great gift idea and you can let the recipient know that their gift helps support Green Park Lutheran.
I’m a supporter of Green Park Lutheran, but I don’t have any children that go there. Can I still participate?
