When the time for Pentecost was fulfilled ...then there appeared to them tongues as of fire,
which parted and came to rest on each one of them.
And they were all filled with the holy Spirit. Acts 2:1a, 3,4a
Dear Parents of Holy Cross Catholic School,
Introducing CRUSADER CASH – a way to reduce your tuition costs at no extra cost to you!
CRUSADER CASH is a gift card purchase program similar to manna. Like manna, participants purchase gift cards at face value from Holy Cross HSA; HSA is able to purchase these cards at a discount. The discount represents the earnings available to be used by our families to reduce tuition costs. Alternatively, you may donate these earnings towards our Guardian Angel Fund (tuition assistance). It’s a win/win situation for everyone!
Earnings depend on the discount associated with the merchant involved. Discounts range from 1.5% to 25%, but generally average around 5%. While this amount may seem small, the numbers add up if you regularly participate. There is no limit on the amount you can earn! The variables are the discount offered by the merchant and how much you spend.
How will the earnings be distributed? You decide whether the earnings help offset your tuition, toward this year's fundraising obligation or as a contribution to our Guardian Angel Fund – you choose.
A small portion will be used to cover the costs of this program, primarily shipping expenses, printing costs and supplies.
Ready to participate? Here’s a “quick start” guide –
- go to www.shopwithscrip.com, establish an individual account, and enter our enrollment code 28633B212167L
- start shopping! Select gift cards from the merchants that you frequent
- print your order summary, select a delivery option, and send your order plus a payment to school by 9:30 a.m. on Tuesday
- your first order must also be accompanied by a liability waiver and registration form; read the guidelines, sign the liability waiver and registration form, and designate how you want your earnings distributed on this form
- receive your gift cards on Thursday; use your gift cards!
- marvel at how easy this is! Feel good about raising money for the school and for YOU! Tell family and friends how easy this is and invite them to participate! Place another order by next Tuesday at 9:30AM.
We need a registration form with your first order, EVEN IF YOU PARTICIPATED LAST YEAR. You can find it on the school website under the Crusader Cash link. In addition to letting us know how you want your earnings applied, this information is needed to satisfy parish requirements.
