Now, with almost every purchase you make, locally and around the country, you can provide tuition assistance to students at Seton Grade School and Bishop Garrigan High School. This will happen if you use "Bear bucks" scrip to make your purchases. Scrip is a term that means "substitute money. When you purchase "Bear bucks" through the Bishop Garrigan Schools, you're purchasing gift certificates in $1, $5, and $10 amounts that can be spent just like cash. You can use scrip at participating businesses throughout the area for everyday expenses like food, clothing, and other essentials--at no extra cost to you. The retailers pay a dividend, 75% of which will go toward providing tuition assistance for Garrigan and Seton students.
Patrons can either earmark their purchases for a certain student or designate the money for a general tuition assistance fund. People with children too young to attend school can "bank" the assistance money they generate for up to five years for a specific student-to-be. Shoppers don't have to have a child in the Catholic school system to be part of the Scrip program. All are welcome to take part in this program and help with tuition assistance. Bishop Garrigan High School will be the site to trade in cash for Scrip coupons, or "Bear bucks".
