"Fundraising while you shop"
Dear Toledo Junior Academy Parents,
We are finally ready to begin our Tuition Reduction Incentive Program (T.R.I.P.). Thank you for your patience as a new coordinator was being trained. We will submit our first order Monday, September 14th.
As a reminder, your online order must be on the www.shopwithscrip.com website by Monday at 9:00am. If you are using the TRIP order form, we must receive it by the same day and time. We can only release your order when we have received your check by Monday at 9:00am unless otherwise noted on the attached TRIP calendar.
For those of you new to the program, TRIP is part of an organization called SCRIP. "SCRIP is fundraising while you shop". Every time you pay for your groceries, gasoline and other household expenses using prepaid SCRIP cards, our school receives a rebate. Half of that percentage goes towards your child's tuition. This program really helps with budgeting too.
You can carry this concept even farther with holidays, anniversaries, birthdays, travel and vacations and add those dates to the calendar. You own your own business? See what you can purchase using these cards. You work for a company? Maybe they could use the cards for business travel, parties, employee incentives and other expenses. Your friends and family may be interested too. You would be the liaison between them and the school. You could even use the program for incentives for your kids. The sky's the limit and that is way up there. The more SCRIP cards you and others purchase, the more our school is supported and the more you save on your child's tuition.
It isn't hard to get involved. You can simply, register online at www.shopwithscrip.com using the enclosed business card to designate TJA as your organization or fill out a TRIP form and bring it to school. Either way you choose, make your check payable to Toledo Junior Academy and write SCRIP on the memo line. Place the check in the TRIP box by the school office. Monday orders are usually received by Thursday and Tuesday orders by Friday. If your favorite shopping places are not on the list, let us know. Maybe we can talk to them about becoming members.
You can think of it as a:
- Reason to
- Invest in
- Private school education
Any questions please call the school at 419-841-0082 on Mondays and Fridays.
