What is the SCRIP Program?
The SCRIP program is a national fundraising program that Albany Christian School has developed to assist families in lowering their tuition costs and to support the continued growth of ACS. The stores that participate in the program sell their gift cards and certificates to ACS at discounted rates. Families purchase these gift cards at face value. The discount earnings are then accumulated throughout the year. In November and May of each year, the earnings are credited to your account. Families receive 50% of the discount earned. Approximately 5% goes to cover the cost of the program (shipping, bank fees, etc.) The remaining 45% is credited to the school.
Who can participate?
Albany Christian School families, friends, relatives – even families who are planning to have their children at Albany Christian in the future can participate. We can save up to 5 years for any family thinking of future ACS students. Any unused funds will be credited to the school at the end of the 5 year period.

How does it work?
You will need to set-up an account with www.shopwithscrip.com. To order, simply go to the shop tab on the shopwithscrip website, specify the types and amounts of certificates you want and submit the order. If you would like to pay online using your checking account, follow the instructions to set-up PrestoPay. Once that is set-up, you will be able to pay as you place your order. If you would prefer to pay by check, you may bring that to the school office. There are two different kind of Scrip orders that we participate in, Local Scrip and ScripNow. ScripNow are E-gift cards that can be downloaded and used right away once payment has been made. If you pay with PrestoPay those will be available immediately. If you choose to pay by check in the office, once that payment has been made, the E-Gift Card will be released and you will be able to download it. Local Scrip are gift cards for local businesses that have decided to participate, these include Fred Meyer, Yogurt Extreme, Burgerville, Starbucks, and Dutch Bros. When you order these, you will pick up physical gift cards at the school office. You may pay with Presto-Pay or bring a check into the school office for these as well.
