SCRIP ENROLLMENT CODE  EL6548647273 

 

The FITS gift card program is a unique fundraiser for Corpus Christi School. Each year, the FITS program makes a significant contribution to defray the school’s operating expenses. The FITS commitment to the operating budget is approximately $90,000. FITS is crucial to Corpus Christi School because the cost of educating our children exceeds our per student tuition. As with tuition, the FITS program is part of your financial obligation to the school.


Each Corpus Christi School family with students in grades PreK-8 is required by School Board policy to raise a specific amount of money as noted on the tuition schedule. These profits must be raised through the purchase of FITS cards from May 1st, 2019 through 

April 30th, 2020. If a family chooses not to participate, they may “opt out” by writing a check for the specified amount made payable to “Corpus Christi School”, with “Opt-Out” written in the memo field or inform the office to have it done through the FACTS account.

 


Your Family Obligation

 

The program works like this: The school purchases FITS gift cards and the cards are then sold to Corpus Christi School families. There is a large selection of vendors, ranging from local grocery stores and restaurants to department stores and national chains.
 

Please note that if your family’s obligation is $350, this does not mean that you need to purchase $350 worth of cards; it means that you must generate $350 in profits for the school.

Example: The Home Depot currently has a profit percentage of 4%. If you purchase a $50 gift card, $2.00 goes towards your annual obligation. If you buy a $300 card, $12.00 goes towards your obligation.  The larger the profit percentage (and the larger the purchase), the more quickly you will accumulate your profits and meet your obligation.
 

Statements detailing the amount of profits you have earned can be obtained by contacting Corpus Christi Scrip program coordinator Ania Simpson (simpsonania@sbcglobal.net)

Families that have not met their financial commitment by April 30th 2020 will be billed any remaining balance by May 15th 2020. Payment is expected by May 15th 2020. 

· If a family meets some, but not all, of their obligation by April 30th, the remaining balance will be due by May 15th 2020

If a family meets their obligation by March 27th and earns additional amount, 50% of that additional amount will be credited to the last payment for tuition.  ***Important***excess rebates can be earned up until March 27th
