Saint Joseph Grade School Scrip & Great Lakes Fundraising / Tuition Credit Program

Interested in REDUCING your School Year Tuition?

Here’s how!

SJGS Family Contractual Fundraising Commitment

Each family at St. Joseph Grade School is required to make purchases amounting to $2,000 in SCRIP (Grocery & Kohl’s) and/or Great Lakes Gift Cards, or be assessed a fee of $100.00. Your $2,000 commitment begins accumulating April 1st and runs through March 31st of the school year. If you spend in excess of $2,000 your tuition discount will increase. By purchasing gift cards the school receives a percentage back from the store. That percentage is split with YOU and you receive tuition credit the following school year. A WIN/WIN situation!

Scrip Program Information

The Scrip Committee processes and/or fills orders every Thursday during the school year. Sending in your order and payment by Wednesday will guarantee we have your order in time to fill it on Thursday morning. You will be given an ID # when you place your first order. There are 2 separate divisions of SCRIP:

(1) Grocery and Kohl’s
(2) Great Lakes.

Please issue 2 separate checks if ordering from both, made out to SJGS.

  1. GROCERY AND KOHLS - these cards are kept in inventory here at school and we sell them every Thursday during the school year. Each time you purchase a Grocery or Kohl’s gift card we receive 5% of the amount which we split with you.

    AVAILABLE STORES: Shop Rite, Stop ‘n Shop, and Kohl’s.
    DENOMINATIONS: $25, $50, $100

    If you have any further questions about Grocery/Kohl's you can contact Bridget Doran via email at
  2. GREAT LAKES - Great Lakes is a supplier of various stores, restaurants etc gift cards such as Home Depot, Lowe’s, Outback, and TGI Friday’s. Each of these retailers offers different percentages that we split with you. Some of these retailers even offer bonuses (higher percentages) at certain times of the year.

Ordering Procedures:

Every other Thursday orders are placed. The next Thursday the order is processed and comes home with your child or left in the office for you to pick up if you prefer.

There are two ways for you to place your Great Lakes order:

  1. You can use the Great Lakes order form. Send in to school with your check on the correct ordering days.
  2. You can place your order on the Great Lakes website. Print the confirmation page and send this with your check on the correct ordering days.

Both ways the cards arrive the same way a week later sent home with your child.
