Why Buy First from DMCS?
By purchasing your favorite Scrip store cards from DMCS first, everybody wins:
- The retailer gets cash up front and repeat business
- You get a powerful fundraising alternative without selling
- Our school gets a regular revenue
- You earn Tuition Credits for your child’s education
The beauty of Scrip is that you put your regular household shopping dollars to work. You earn money for your child’s tuition account as well as our school without spending a single additional penny. Just spend your regular shopping dollars by using Scrip cards and certificates at the stores that participate in the Scrip program! And Scrip can be used for just about any household purchase including food, clothing, entertainment and gasoline!
Community Scrip – What Is It?
Many area merchants also participate in the Scrip program through Community Scrip. DMCS issues universal certificates that may be redeemed at any of the participating Community Scrip Merchants. The certificates are issued like a blank check in various denominations. You make the certificate payable to the retailer where you are shopping and sign it at the bottom. Community Scrip does follow a “no-change back” policy, so purchase accordingly.
How Much Tuition Credit Will I Receive?
Each time you purchase Scrip through DMCS, that purchase is tracked in your family’s account. For example, if you purchase a $100 of Hy-Vee or Fareway’s gift cards through our Scrip program, your credit of approximately $2 is saved into your family’s account. At the end of the plan year, mid-May, 70% of your saved credit can be applied toward your tuition bill. By the end of the year, if you utilize Scrip regularly, that could be $100s of dollars off of your school’s tuition bill!
You may also begin saving before your child enters kindergarten. Your banked credit is tracked until your child reaches kindergarten. When your child begins kindergarten at DMCS, your tuition credit automatically is deducted from your tuition at the beginning of your kindergarten year. Preschool Scrip use can be banked for up to three years since preschool tuition is considered a form of daycare by the IRS and not eligible for tuition credit.
