raise right program
(Formerly known as Scrip)
what is the raise right program?
“Raise Right” (Formerly known as SCRIP) is an important part of our annual fundraising program! Retailers sell St. Luke gift cards at a discount, and then we sell them to you at face value. The difference between our discounted price and the face value of the card (ie: rebate) turns into fundraising dollars for St. Luke School.
When you purchase RAISE RIGHT cards for things you already buy – like groceries, gas, and fast food - you help us to raise money for the school – and you don’t spend a dollar more than you normally would have. All it takes is a little time and planning – to keep gifts cards in your wallet for the stores you most often shop.
HERE’S AN EXAMPLE:
Safeway sells St. Luke a $100 gift card for $96 (4% rebate) · St. Luke sells YOU a $100 gift card for $100 · The school just earned $4 and it cost you NOTHING.
what is THE RAISE RIGHT PROGRAM FUNDS used for?
New this year is the dedication of RAISE RIGHT proceeds to our St. Luke Technology Fund. All monies raised this year will go to support the upgrade of technology in the classrooms and our school.
how do i buy GIFT CARDS THROUGH RAISE RIGHT?
There are five ways to buy, see below...
On Monday or Tuesday, print an order form from the school website. Fill out the form indicating the gift cards you want to purchase, and send it to school with your student with a check made payable to St. Luke SCRIP. Cards in stock will come home with your student on Friday or will be at the office for pickup on Friday. Please make sure to indicate on the order form your preferred method of receiving the cards. Special order cards will come home the following week. You can send in an order every Monday.
**NEW** Set up a standing order. Fill out the form for a standing order indicating which cards you would like to order and how frequently. Attach your checks pre-filled out and post dated – made payable to ST LUKE RAISE RIGHT. For example – if you are ordering monthly – send 10 checks (September – June). If you need to cancel mid year, change your order, or skip an order – that’s fine. Just email us the Friday before and we’ll make the changes. Standing orders will come home on Fridays with your student or be at the office Friday for pickup. Please make sure to indicate on the order form your preferred method of receiving the cards.

is PARTICIPATION IN THE RAISE RIGHT PROGRAM mandatory?
YES! Each St. Luke School family is required to participate buy purchasing RAISE RIGHT GIFT CARDS throughout the year. Each family needs to earn a minimum of $100 in RAISE RIGHT rebates (profit) for the school. For example - if you ordered $500 in QFC (5% rebates), then you'll have earned $25 in rebates towards your $100 goal.
how do i get credit towards my fundraising goals?
When you purchase RAISE RIGHT GIFT CARDS, we keep track of the total rebate earned from each card. You get credit for the value of the rebate – which is why retailers who offer bigger rebates tend to sell more cards! The RAISE RIGHT TEAM tracks all of your orders – both online and in person, e-scrip and physical cards. Periodically the RAISE RIGHT committee will send updates to the school community letting you know how much you have earned so far. In addition, once you create an online account, you can log on anytime to see how much in rebates your RAISE RIGHT PROGRAM purchases have earned YTD.
if family members want to purchase GIFT CARDS FROM RAISE RIGHT, will it count towards my goal?
Yes, there is a place on the form for non-school families to pick who should receive credit for their order. This is a great way for family and friends to help you reach your fundraising goals.
what is the incentive in earning more than the minimum $100 in rebates?
In addition to helping raise money for St. Luke School (which is reason enough!) - families that earn $400 in RAISE RIGHT rebates by the registration deadline (February) qualify for one free registration ($250 value). Families that earn $700 or more in rebates qualify for two free registrations ($500).
how do i know which retailers PARTICIPATE IN RAISE RIGHT?
We offer a variety of national store gift cards (Starbucks, iTunes, Subway, Sears) as well as local retailers like Hills, QFC/Fred Meyer, and Double DD Meats. For a complete list of stocked gift cards, see the RAISE RIGHT order form.
