Overview -

The CVCS Scrip Program is designed to capture funds already being spent by CVCS families and friends in order to raise money for our school and provide a means of lowering tuition costs for our families.  When you purchase Scrip cards through CVCS, you are purchasing prepaid gift cards to be used just like cash for everyday expenses like food, gas, clothing, and other essentials at hundreds of businesses, many of which you shop at on a regular basis

  • CVCS earns anywhere from 2.5-25% profit from the purchase of Scrip.

Example:  When CVCS purchases a $100 card to Fred Meyer, Fred Meyer charges the school $95 for that card and the $5 profit goes back to our school.  A CVCS family who purchases that card would receive credit for 50% of the profit - $2.50.

  • Tuition credits are calculated three times a year: 
    • August - purchases made from February 16th - June 30th
    • November - purchases made from July 1st - October 15th 
    • March -  purchases made from October 16th - February 15th

Each family whose Scrip purchases generate a minimum rebate of $20 in each credit period will have their Tuition Credit applied to their tuition account.  Tuition Credit will be 50% of the rebate earned by their purchases. Families may choose to have CVCS retain the rebate.

  • Participating in the Scrip program helps in two ways.  With every purchase you make:
    • 50% of your rebates are credited back to your tuition account
    • Revenue is earned for our school!
  • Grandparents, relatives and friends can help with tuition and support CVCS by purchasing Scrip cards online from anywhere!
  • Scrip is a year-round program - you can begin participating at any time.

Scrip cards can be purchased with cash or a check anytime during school hours at the Elementary or Secondary Campus office.

What is Scrip?

The Scrip Program is designed to capture funds already being spent by CVCS families and friends and raise money for our school.  When you purchase Scrip cards you are purchasing prepaid cards/gift certificates that are used just like cash to purchase food, gas, clothing, and other essentials at hundreds of businesses, many of which you shop at on a regular basis. CVCS earns anywhere from 1.5-25% profit from the purchase of Scrip cards. For instance, Fred Meyer gives CVCS a 5% discount on their cards.  When you purchase a $100 Fred Meyer card for $100, Fred Meyer charges the School $95 for that card and the $5 profit goes back to our School. When your purchases generate $20 minimum profit, it is split 50/50 with you to claim toward your tuition costs.  With every purchase, you can earn tuition credit and revenue for our school!

How does the school benefit from the Scrip Program?

In the 2018/2019 school year, the Scrip Program sales reached over $384,000, which generated profit of nearly $21,000 for CVCS, and families who participated earned $8,528 of that in tuition credits!

How do I claim my tuition credit?

We keep track of the purchases you make through ShopWithScrip. Credits are applied to tuition accounts in March, August, and November. When your purchases generate a minimum rebate of $20 during a given credit period, we give you 50% of the rebate earned by your purchases. Track your tuition credit anytime on ShopWithScrip.com  under “My Account” and "Reports" on the left side menu.

How do I get credit for purchases I make from on-hand inventory in the office?

Purchases made from on-hand inventory will be tracked manually and entered into your ShopwithScrip account. Be sure to register on ShopWithScrip.com and send in a completed Scrip Registration Form to school.

Is the Scrip program year-round?

Scrip is a year-round program and an important item in our school’s budget every year. Inventory is available for purchase in both campus offices all summer during office hours, and one order per month is placed during the summer break until regular weekly orders resume at the beginning of the new school year. All purchases over the summer count toward August tuition credits, and you can begin participating at any time.

Do the cards expire? If so, are they good for at least a year or so?  

Most never expire, but a few can lose value each year. You can check the card balances on their respective websites or by calling the phone number listed on the back of the card.

Can a credit card be used to purchase Scrip?

Yes. ShopwithScrip does allow credit cards payments for purchases made online or through their app RaiseRight. However, they charge an additional fee of 2.6% of your order total each time you pay using your credit card to help cover the costs of processing online payments.

**Credit card payments are not accepted for purchases made at either of our campuses from our on-hand inventory
