What is SCRIP?
Scrip is a term that means “Substitute Money”. When you purchase SCRIP, you’re purchasing negotiable gift cards that are used just like cash. You can use SCRIP to purchase everyday expenses like Rozier’s Country Mart, Save A Lot, BP, Philips 66, Subway, Dairy Queen, Sirros, and many others, and with every purchase, you earn revenue for Ste. Genevieve Parish & Valle Schools.
How SCRIP generates revenue for Ste Genevieve Parish & Valle Schools?
Raiseright.com acts on behalf of churches, schools and other non profit organizations to purchase gift cards from grocery stores, department stores and other retailers. Because the SCRIP is purchased with cash up front, the participating retailers offer a substantial discount. Ste. Genevieve Parish & Valle Schools buys the SCRIP from raiseright.com & Local Merchants at a discount, and re-sells the certificates to families like yours for full face value. The discount – from 1 ½ percent to 15% or more is Ste. Genevieve Parish & Valle School’s revenue.
The purchaser can choose where the revenue will go. Either:
100% to the Ste Genevieve Parish Operating Budget
25% to the Ste. Genevieve Parish Operating Budget
75% to a Valle Schools Student Tuition (or)
75% to Parish School of Religion Registration (or)
75% to Valle Pre-School Student Tuition
-Tuition credit for Valle Schools is accumulated for the current school year from April 1, 2023 to March 31, 2024. Your tuition credit will be on your statement the beginning of April 2024.
-PSR registration credit is accumulated April 1, 2023 to March 31, 2024 and credit will be applied to your account in September 2024 for 2024-25 School Year.

Reloadable Cards Adding money to reloadable cards is a great option for shopping or gas cards. When you pay with online payments (credit card or linked bank account), funds will be added to your card in minutes (24 hours a day, 7 days a week). For some brands, indicated as overnight reload, the funds will be added to your card overnight as long as your order is placed and paid for before 3:30 p.m. ET (Monday through Friday). The first time you add money to a reloadable gift card, you’ll enter the card number and name of card for future use. You cannot add money to cards purchased from somewhere else. You can add money to reloadable cards up to 99 times. The reloadable card cannot have a “0” balance more than 60 days.
