Every family has a $500 per year, fundraising obligation. SCRIP is sold year-round with online orders available 24 hours a day or in-person sales through the school office every week.
How does SCRIP work?
SCRIP is a fundraising program for schools. Through SCRIP, school families purchase gift cards from a variety of businesses, including box stores, local retailers, gas stations, and restaurants, to name a few. The gift cards are sold at a discount of 1% to 20%, but are used at face value. The difference between the discounted price and the face value of the card goes into the I.C.R.S. School General Fund as profit. For example, if you purchase a $100.00 Safeway gift card with a 5% discount through SCRIP, $5.00 is given to the school.
