Scrip, the gift certificate program offered through Riverview, allows individuals to buy gift certificates/cards for a wide variety of businesses at face value. The businesses then provide a discount to Riverview. That discount may be designated for the Riverview Building Fund or divided with half designated for the building fund of Riverview Lutheran and the other half applied to a child’s tuition of your choice at RLS of FVLHS. (If you do not have a specific child to designate your discount to, but would like to help a family in need, you may also designate your percentage to the Riverview Lutheran Tuition and Fee Assistance Fund.) Discounts vary based on the retailer and range from 1.5%-10% or more. These savings can really add up. In 2010, our scrip program generated nearly $10,000 for our building fund and assistance for school families.
Scrip can be purchased on Sunday morning between services and throughout the week from the office. Most retailers are kept in stock, but special orders placed by Monday morning can normally be filled by Friday morning.
