Scrip Gift Cards

Scrip Program
Earn Money for Your Child’s Religious Education

What is Scrip?
Scrip Gift Certificates earn money for Catholic Education. Retailers sell the Scrip at a discount to St. James. You purchase the Certificates at face value, earning much needed funds for our school. Scrip is used at stores just like money. Every purchase earns 2% to your family as tuition credit. Over a year, buy $1000 in scrip gift cards and earn $20 (paid in May). Buy $5,000 and earn $100. There’s no limit to the credits you can earn!

There are four convenient ways to participate!

  • Scrip Express! Send in an order (with payment) using the form below. The Scrip will be sent home with your child at the end of the day. Please include a phone number if we have any order questions.
  • Scrip Certificates are available for immediate purchase after each Sunday Mass or in the School office during the week. Simply write a check to Education Funding Committee or pay cash and receive your Scrip.
  • Full Orders Online: Scrip can also be ordered online with a debit from your checking account or a check sent into the School office. Use Enrollment Code: 8EAAC4864616 at  Orders placed by 7 PM on Scrip Mondays will be ready that Friday.
