Scrip is the easiest, best way for St. John Bosco to raise money on a consistent basis. It’s simple.
Like a gift certificate, Scrip is used by our families to purchase goods and services at hundreds of national and local establishments, including leading retail stores, travel services, grocery stores and restaurants. SJB receives a percentage of sales. Best of all, participation is really easy; we are only asking you to buy gift cards to places where you would spend money anyway!
The Scrip program is a very important fundraiser here at St. John Bosco. Families have the possibility of earning partial or several months of tuition credit through active Scrip participation, in addition to offsetting on-going costs at SJB. This is a great way to reduce your tuition cost. It is a win/win program at no cost to you, because the Scrip certificates act the same as cash at the merchants around the valley and the country!
The SJB Scrip program expects each family to meet a minimum $150.00 profit/contribution for the 2021-22 school year. Once this profit/contribution has been met, any subsequent profit is split 50/50 between SJB and the family and may be used to offset future FACTS payments or registration fees. Scrip credit cannot be applied to previous payments. The SJB Scrip year is from March 18, 2021 to March 17, 2022.
How Scrip Works:
- SJB purchases gift cards at a discount, usable for shopping, merchandise, food, and services.
- Families purchase these gift cards at face value from our Scrip team at SJB.
- The discount or profit, which ranges from 1.5% to 40%, is then split 50/50 between SJB and the family after $150.00 in profit is accumulated, or immediately with a $150.00 tax-deductible donation to SJB.

Scrip Works for Three Reasons:
- The participating retailers are stores where you already shop all the time.
- SJB parents can help without spending an extra dime.
- Many parents are looking for a new way to contribute – they are tired of buying unwanted or unnecessary items like cookies, candy, gift-wrap, and magazines.
It is EASY to participate! It just takes some planning.
