Tuition Reimbursement Incentive Program (TRIP)
Going grocery shopping? Need a gift card for a special occasion? Look no further and purchase plastic cards and earn tuition credit for your purchase.
TRIP is a fundraising program that allows school families the opportunity to earn tuition credit and raise some money for St. Francis Borgia School. Many popular retailers participate in this program. Some are Jewel, Mariano’s, Kohl’s, Target, Walmart, Dunkin Donuts, Michael’s Starbucks, Panera, Walgreens, and Home Depot. A full list of vendors are available at http://www.glscrip.com
Through TRIP, you buy the cards at full face value and redeem them for full face value. You as a family will receive 50% of the percentage for every gift card you purchase and the school will receive 50%, allocated towards our yearly fundraising goal. The percentage receive varies according to vendor, ranging from 1.5% to 24%. Some families have earned as much as $500 tuition credit in one year!
Plastic Gift card orders
Plastic gift card orders are usually placed on Monday mornings when school is in session, and typically sent home to you that Thursday. On weeks when there is no school on Monday, there will be no order. There are 2 ways to place orders for plastic cards:
- You may fill out an order form and send it to the school office with payment. You may send the form in any day of the week but it will be processed the following Monday morning.
- You may place your order online at www.glscrip.com any day of the week at your convenience once your account is set up. Online orders will still be processed the following Monday morning. Online orders must use PrestoPay – a secure, efficient, high quality electronic payment system. You must enter your banking information and your payment will be sent directly to Glscrip. Credit cards may be used for payment but there is an extra fee to use a credit card. If you are interested in ordering online, you must fill out the attached Enrollment form and select that option.
Regardless of the method used to place your order, all plastic gift cards will be delivered on Thursday. Your cards may be sent home with your child, or picked up in the school office.
Scrip Now Ordering
You may order Scrip Now (e-cards), which are real time electronic gift cards. You can do this online at www.glscrip.com (once your PrestoPay account has been set up). You must use PrestoPay to order Scrip Now. You may order 24/7 and receive Scrip Now via email instantly. This gives you the option to shop for Scrip Now at home and redeem them the same day. You will earn the tuition credit the same way as the plastic cards.
Please see attached policy agreement, enrollment form and order form for TRIP. If you have any questions or would like any additional information regarding this program, please feel free to contact the TRIP coordinators.
