SCRIP is an innovative program at St. Joseph School that enables
parishioners and school families to provide significant financial support to
the school through simply shopping at grocery, restaurant, and retail
vendors that they visit each day.
Here’s how it works. Gift cards in varying amounts for over 100 area
vendors are sold before and after each weekly Mass, as well as through the
SCRIP school "backpack" program. Between three and twenty percent of the
proceeds from each card (depending upon the vendor agreement), come back to
the school and parish automatically. SCRIP proceeds provide funding for many
school resources and activities including classroom materials, school
activities, an annual subscription to the Nebraska Federation of Catholic
School Parents newsletter for all St. Joseph families, and more.
