SCRIP - Food for Thought
Our Lady of Mount Carmel Preschool offers families a unique opportunity to raise funds for the school while also earning tuition credit dollars. With Food for Thought (also known as the Scrip program), families purchase gift cards for grocery stores, restaurants, retail stores, and more at the face value amount. OLMC School purchases the cards at a discount of 2-15%, resulting in revenue for each card purchased.
Our Lady of Mount Carmel Preschool families earn 50% of the profit generated after they meet the $50 minimum profit amount per family. Many preschool families significantly reduce their tuition expense by using gift cards for their everyday purchases, and encouraging family members and friends to also purchase cards.
The funds earned by the school from the Food for Thought program are used for field trips, cultural programs, technology improvements, and more.
One of the reasons the Food for Thought program is so successful is the wide variety of businesses that participate. Most school families find that they can shop and eat at all the places they normally frequent while earning funds for the school and reducing their tuition expenses.
