Scrip Program

What is SCRIP?
Participating merchants will make contributions to St. Christopher’s when you make purchases using the Scrip certificates/cards. Scrip is used for purchases in stores and restaurants just like cash.

The St. Christopher School Board established the Scrip program in 1991 as a fundraiser to offset the rising cost of tuition. Profits from the Scrip program go directly into the operating budget of the school. For the 2003/2004 school year, the scrip program is budgeted to contribute $90,000 to the school. Currently, St. Christopher's tuition contract includes a $3,500 yearly Scrip purchase requirement. This requirement can be fulfilled in several ways described below:

Paper Scrip At School

Throughout the year, our Scrip team sells on Sundays after the 8am Mass, before and after the 9:30am Mass, and before the 11am Mass (except on holiday weekends).

During the school year, Scrip is sold from the Marian Room in the Monsignor Allen Center on Tuesday and Friday mornings from 7:45am - 8:30am, Thursday afternoon from 2:45pm - 3:30pm, and through the Tuesday envelope. The following order form is available online or during the selling times above at the time of purchase.


eScrip (Electronic Scrip): St. Christopher joined the eScrip program in September 1999. We have found eScrip to be simple, convenient and effective. You can register any or all of your existing grocery loyalty cards, credit cards and debit/ATM cards with eScrip. When you make a purchase with a participating merchant, you will receive Scrip credit and St. Christopher will receive a donation from the merchant. Currently, all of our major local grocery stores have joined eScrip, including Safeway, PW, Lunardi's, Whole Foods and Cosentino's. As of September 2003, Safeway requires that you renew your card commitment (there is no fee) with eScrip each year.

You can click HERE for a list of participating merchants by area. Also, the St. Christopher’s Development Office maintains a list. There is NO FEE to use eScrip. You can register by phone or online. Just call 1-800-592-0942 and tell them that you want to support St. Christopher’s elementary school or go directly to www.escrip.com to register online.
