SCRIP (also known as T.R.I.P) 

The St. Joseph School SCRIP program is provided to St. Joseph families to help supplement tuition costs and the school budget. Great Lakes Scrip Center sell gift cards to the school for a rebate. SCRIP allows families to purchase these gift cards through St. Joseph School. The rebate is given back to individual families and to the school. Since this is a fundraiser for St. Joes, 25% of all earnings go directly to the school. 


Enrollment is open to all St. Joseph School Families, as well as those who use the Religious Education Programs. Enrollment forms are available for sign up where SCRIP is being sold. All families are permitted and encouraged to obtain orders from relatives or friends.
