About Scrip
What is SCRIP?
Scrip is a way for you to make money as you spend it!  It is one of the easiest fundraisers the school has in place.  You save money on your tuition by using Scrip.  The school, you, and the merchants who participate all benefit from the Scrip program.

What is Scrip?
The WACS Business Office purchases gift certificates (Scrip) from local merchants and also from a business called GLS at a discount. We sell these certificates at full face value to you. The profit that is made when we sell the certificates is turned around and given back to the school, the families in WACS, Cotter or a parish of your choice. Parents receive 40% of the profit and WACS receives 60%. You receive the credit on your tuition, child care or hot lunch account. You can also chose to donate the credit to a friend or family member's account, the school or a parish.

For example - You use scrip to buy:


Groceries at Hyvee

Gas from Kwik Trip

Pizza from Rocco's

Lunch at Cha Chi's

Pet food/supplies at Fleet Farm

Prescriptions/toiletries at Walgreens
