Frequently asked Questions
What is SCRIP?
SCRIP is a St. Georgeís school fund raiser. You purchase gift certificates from over thousands of local and national vendors from school, and the vendor agrees to give a percentage of that amount back to the school.

Where do the scrip certificates come from?
GLSC and St. George SCRIP purchases the certificates directly from the retailers. The certificates we provide to our coordinators are the same gift certificates you would buy if you went to the participating retailer and purchased them yourself. There are thousands of national vendors (i.e. Wal Mart, JC Penney, Kohlís, Applebeeís, BP, Lowes, etc. and over 40 local vendors (Hermann area) (i.e. Hermann grocery stores, restaurants, discount stores, florists, etc). See our order form for the vendors.

How do I know what vendors participate?
A full list of national and local vendors is enclosed on this website. You may also look up for updates, etc. on national vendors.

What does this cost me?

If a vendor is not on the vendor list, does that mean that they wonít join?
While we try to keep the vendor list current, on a daily basis, new vendors join and also participating vendors may decide to not participate any more or they may change their denominations or percentage.
