Every year SHA has the opportunity to receive thousands of dollars in free money from collecting labels that would otherwise go out in the trash, or receipts from purchases you already make. No additional purchases are required. These labels and points can add up to a substantial amount of money for our school.
We use the money mainly for teachers to purchase classroom supplies. We would like to invite all parents, parishioners and friends of the Academy to participate in any or all of the programs available and help us get the free monies these companies are willing to give our school. SHA is not asking you to buy anything extra—just save labels, box tops or the credit you get for using a designated card or purchasing gift cards.
Below is an outline of the programs available. If you have any questions about these program(s), kindly contact: Mary Kay Reetz, Marketing/Admissions Director, (989) 772-1457 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
SCRIP is a Tuition Reduction Program. You purchase gift cards, use them for shopping at local and national merchants and received a discount which is applied to your tuition amount. It's easy, simple and a great way to put a dent in your tuition, doing something you already do: shop, eat and buy gas! Sacred Heart purchases Scrip at a discount and re-sells the certificates for face value. The bulk of the discount - from 2 to 15% or more - is retained by you and Sacred Heart as revenue. For example, if you purchase a $100 Home Depot card, you pay $100. Home Depot has a discounted rate of 3%, Sacred Heart pays only $97 for the $100 gift card and you receive a $100 Home Depot card. The 3% discount equals $3. You receive 80% of that and Sacred Heart receive 20%. Click here for more information. Stop by the Parish office or visit https://shop.shopwithscrip.com/Login to register. Call the Parish office at (989) 772-1385 or email Tracey Natke at email@example.com for ENROLLMENT CODE.
Attention Amazon Shoppers! Help the Sacred Heart Home and School Association raise money to support our teachers, staff, students and families by starting HERE when you shop on Amazon. Amazon will donate 0.5% of each purchase to SHA’s Home and School Association. Are you already supporting a charity and wish to change? Log onto smile.amazon.com, and under "Or pick your own charitable organization" and enter Sacred Heart Parish (make sure you select Mt. Pleasant, MI). Even though it says "Parish" Home and School will use these funds to continue to support teacher appreciation events, student events like the end of year carnival, family events, and Catholic Schools week. As you help us build our funds by earning on purchases you are already making, we will be able to support more of these fun events!
