What is scrip?

Scrip is similar to money. When you buy scrip, you are buying negotiable gift certificates and prepaid cards that are used just like cash. You can use scrip to buy everyday items like food, clothing, gas, etc. With every purchase you make, you earn money to reduce your tuition and make tax deductible contributions to SJB. It’s as simple as 1-2-3.

Scrip FAQs

HOW DOES SCRIP WORK? Easy as 1 - 2 - 3

  1. Scrip participating retailers agree to sell gift cards to SJB at varying discounts (rebates).

  2. Families buy and use the gift cards at full face value ($50 cash buys a $50 gift card).

  3. The discount from participating retailers is held in your account as “rebate”.


  • Rebates apply to Tuition and Fees: Up to 90% of the rebates earned from your purchase(s) can be applied to reduce tuition, Faith Formation or other program fees. Friends and family can assign up to 90% of their earned rebates towards your tuition or fees. See the Rebate Incentive and Scrip Program Agreement for more detailed information. The remaining 10% is applied to Scrip program costs.

  • Rebates as Tax Deductible Contributions: Rebates you earn that are not applied to a tuition or program fee reduction will be tax deductible. There are numerous choices of parish and school specific programs to designate how you would like to apply your tax deductible rebate portion. The options are detailed in the Scrip Program Agreement. The Scrip Program coordinators will provide you with tax information annually based on the fiscal year of the Scrip Program.
