What is Scrip?
"Scrip" is a fancy word for gift cards. One of the best things about raising money through our Scrip program is that NO extra money comes out of the pockets of our families. Retailers sell Longmont Christian gift cards at a discount, and then we sell them to you at face value. The difference between our discount price and the face value of the card turns into fundraising dollars for LCS.
How does it work?
Safeway sells LCS a $100 gift card for $96 (4% rebate). LCS sells You a $100 gift card for $100. The school just earned $4 and it cost you nothing.
How and when can I buy Scrip gift cards?

Is Scrip Mandatory?
Each family at LCS is asked to participate in the Scrips program by purchasing an average of $350 per month ($3,500 per school year earning approximately $200) in gift cards. Basically, write your check to LCS instead of the retailer, then use your gift cards to pay for your purchases. If you choose not to participate, $200 will be added to your total tuition.
