Beginning in Fall 2022, LCSS families will be able to purchase gift cards from Raise Right and automatically help fund PTO projects at St. Francis, St. Mary Cathedral, St. Lawrence, St. Boniface, and PACE at Central Catholic.
Raise Right, formerly known as SCRIP, is a fundraising program whereby gift cards are purchased for national and local retailers. A percentage of the face value is given back to our schools. In the past, St. Lawrence SCRIP has raised more than $20,000 per year to help fund school programs and initiatives through the PTO. This program will roll out so that all the schools’ PTO’s will benefit. Each family can specify which school they choose for fundraising.
One of the things families love about this program is that it also benefits them directly. It will put money toward your family’s tuition and fees.
Once a family earns $300 in credits, 25% of their future purchases will go to the school organizations and 75% will be applied to tuition fees, extracurricular activities, or any other school expense balance that may exist.
As an example, if a family has $1000 in rebates, they would receive $525 in tuition or program fee credits that may be applied at the end of the school year.
Enclosed you will find a FAQ Document as well as step-by-step instructions to get you going on both the mobile and desktop versions of Raise Right. If you have any questions, please direct them to Natalie Stevens, the Program Coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org
