SCRIP is a fund-raising program that doesn't cost you one more penny than you already normally spend. SCRIP stands for "subscription receipt", meaning a certificate entitling the owner to some form of property or service.
SCRIP is a cost-free way to donate to SETON. When you buy a SCRIP certificate, you pay a dollar for dollar face value. You buy only what you want in the amount you need. Using SCRIP allows local and national merchants to support SETON by donating a percentage of every sale immediately to our fund.
You can access an online application called SHOPWITHSCRIP.COM. This enables you to order your own SCRIP online. The ShopWith Scrip Enrollment Code is LA53CB273L19 and our program coordinator is Karla Larsen. If you sign up for PrestoPay, you can receive your eCards right away, or once you send a check in to school, the eCards will be released to your account.
Some SCRIP certificates are usually available for purchase on any day at the Seton Business Office in the Middle School. Seton has the following SCRIP certificates in the Business Office:

WHERE CAN I USE SCRIP?
SCRIP can be used at any of the participating merchants locally as well as nationally. Grocery, gasoline, department, video and specialty stores as well as many restaurants in the area honor SCRIP certificates. A complete list can be found on the SCRIP Order Form. Consider SCRIP use at home, on vacation or at work for lunches out or employee incentives.
HOW DOES SCRIP BENEFIT ME?
SCRIP is an excellent way of budgeting your expenses. Purchasing SCRIP helps you you to see how much you are spending on everything you use at home or out on the town! SCRIP also enables you to purchase smaller amounts of certificates for use as birthday, Christmas or special event gifts. Purchasing and saving your SCRIP towards large expenditures works well too since there are not any expiration dates on SCRIP.
HOW AND WHEN DO I RECEIVE MY SCRIP?
Currently, SCRIP orders are taken every two weeks. The orders are collected at your Parish Office, church or at the SETON School offices. The Orders Forms go home with the youngest child the week prior to ordering. These Order Forms may also be available at your parish and school offices. You may turn in your Order Form any time at the school offices. The orders are phoned in on Tuesday mornings and received for distribution on Thursdays of the same week.
DOES MY ORDER HAVE TO BE LARGE TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE?
Absolutely not! The more families we have participate, the greater the return will be. A 5% return may not sound like much but these profits add up quickly! By simply purchasing SCRIP instead of using checks or credit cards, you can pay for your household expenses straight out and benefit SETON in the process. Occasionally, we have large orders due to the holidays or home improvement projects. These are always welcomed and we are happy to place a special order just for these larger purchases. If you are planning a home improvement project, please consider that several merchants allow us to purchase larger denominations with a 10-day notification. We are always willing to try and work with your purchasing schedule.
IS THERE A WAY TO SECURE A STANDING ORDER?
We have implemented a service within the SCRIP program called SCRIP subSCRIPtion. When you fill out the form to begin a SCRIP subSCRIPtion, the responsibility of consistently providing you with your choice of SCRIP becomes ours---you do not have to fill out an Order Form every time. Several of our participants enjoy the ease of a SCRIP subSCRIPtion for their grocery and gasoline needs and never have to worry about forgetting to turn in their Order Forms on time. We will send you a reminder when your order has been placed if payment has not been received.
HOW DOES SCRIP BENEFIT MY CHILDREN?
Because of Seton's dress code, Wear What You Want Passes are a big draw for our students. Every student of every family that orders will receive WWYW Passes, both at the elementary and middle school levels. These passes are non-redeemable on the days the students celebrate Mass, but can be used at any other time.
In addition, understand that SCRIP is a yearlong fundraising effort. CONSISTENCY IS THE KEY to this program. We respect that participating in the SCRIP program requires preplanning and extra steps where household budgets are concerned.
EVERY EFFORT YOU MAKE TO INCLUDE SCRIP IN YOUR BUDGET DIRECTLY BENEFITS NOT ONLY YOUR CHILD, BUT ALSO EVERY STUDENT AT SETON. Every purchase you make deposits funds immediately into the working capital of Seton. These funds are included in the budget and a necessary Third Source Income for Seton.
PLEASE, take the time to see how you can increase Seton's Third Source Income not by changing or increasing your spending habits, but simply by including the SCRIP program in your established household budget.
SOLID PROFITS REQUIRE HIGH VOLUME SALES BASED ON CONSISTENCY AND ACCESSIBILITY. THE POTENTIAL OF THIS PROGRAM IS UNLIMITED AND SETON NEEDS YOUR SUPPORT.
