The SCRIP program exists for the purpose of supporting the ministry of New Hope Christian School.

Businesses make it possible for NHCS to purchase gift cards/gift certificates at a reduced price. Those gift cards/gift certificates are then sold at face value. The difference in purchase price and face value is referred to as a “Rebate.”

Example:

$100 Kwik Trip Gas Card, discounted by 5%

$100 value – $90 purchase price = $5 Rebate

The “rebate” is beneficial to the ministry of NHCS when used to reduce fees & tuition; it is especially beneficial when the “rebate” is given to NHCS as a charitable contribution. It is our hope that, since SCRIP exists to benefit the ministry of NHCS, families willingly choose to use SCRIP rebates to reduce fees & tuition and to also make a charitable contribution to NHCS.

From an IRS perspective, SCRIP may not exist for the benefit of any one individual or family; it may not exist “for the benefit of private interests.” We are continuing this volunteer-led program, knowing and believing it is best for NHCS as a whole. Our SCRIP program has seen an explosion in growth – Praise God! We have designed our SCRIP program to ensure IRS compliance and to ease the administration of the program.
