St. Anthony Scrip Program


Scrip is a great way to raise funds for your parish, Holy Family Education or Religious Education.

How does it work?

When you purchase a Scrip gift card or certificate, you purchase it for the full face value, and you get the full face value of the card/certificate. However, the vendor (Hy-Vee, Fareway, Younkers, etc.) gives the Scrip Program a discount on the price the program pays for the card.  That discount is then returned to you (75% returned to you, 25% administrative fee) in the form of either tuition assistance to either Holy Family or Religious Education, or a donation to St. Anthony Parish. Credits are paid out quarterly and notification of the amount of your credit is included with the first order you place after the credits are paid out.

There are several options for ordering Scrip.  We prefer that orders be placed online.  By placing orders online you minimize the possibility of errors in your order AND you have many more vendors available online than those that appear on our order form.  If you do not have a computer or access to a computer, we will process paper orders which can be picked up at the Parish Office.

How do I pay for Scrip?

You can pay by check or by Great Lakes Scrip's secure payment option PrestoPay.  PrestoPay is much like PayPal or other online payment systems where your payment is taken directly from your checking account.  If you pay by check you can include the check with your order (we ask that you print out your online order and submit it) and send the order to school with your student, drop it off at the Parish Offices (slot in the door) or in the Sunday collection plate. If you pay by PrestoPay, we still ask that you print out your order and submit it in the envelope provided to save costs of administering the program.
