The Scrip Program at St. Ann School is an excellent – and easy! - fundraising program in which ALL families can participate. The program is simple: You just purchase gift cards for the businesses you already frequent and spend only what you would regularly spend, and a percentage of your purchase will be donated to St. Ann’s. That’s right – you don’t spend any more to purchase the gift cards.
All you have to do is THINK SCRIP and remember to stop by the school office, e-mail Dianne Neumeyer or go online (see PRESTO PAY at the scrip website) and select from hundreds of participating businesses – restaurants, grocery stores, clothing stores, gas stations, etc. So, if you are picking up groceries, THINK SCRIP! Planning a vacation? THINK SCRIP? Doing some graduation shopping? THINK SCRIP! Need gas? THINK SCRIP! You get the picture. To learn more, click here.
