Angie DeBlaey, Brenda Lammers--Scrip Team
This on-going fund-raiser has its roots in businesses that want to help fund non-profit organizations like Oostburg Christian. The GRACE committee buys certificates and gift cards at a discount and sells them to supporters at face value. Two percent of each discount is used by GRACE*. The rest of the percentage from two percent on up will be given to the tuition account of your choice.

What is Scrip Anywhere?
This is an exciting part of our Scrip program which allows people to buy Scrip at Oostburg Christian and apply their discount percentages to tuition accounts for students who attend other Christian schools.
How does it work?
1) When Scrip certificates are purchased from Oostburg Christian School, anything over 2%* will be distributed according to your wishes.
2) Each January, Oostburg Christian will send the balance in your Scrip account to the school(s) that you have registered with us, unless the child is not school age. In that case, it will be kept in our Futures account until we receive information that they are enrolled.
Who can participate?
Anyone can participate and designate their Scrip discount to be held in a Scrip Anywhere account and the Scrip team will distribute once a year to the schools that you have registered.
You will be contacted each year to be sure that the information that we have on file is current and that you still wish to participate in this program.
What other things do I need to know?
Checks cannot be sent to individuals—they must be sent to Christian or private schools for tuition assistance.
You will be notified when the funds are sent so that you can be sure that your family members are aware of the amount being credited to their tuition account.
Checks will not be sent unless they are $25 or more.
Checks will be sent in January of each year so that tuition accounts can be credited for the current school year.
Oostburg Christian keeps the 2%* for our purposes, the balance will be sent, by request, in the same percentage that we presently give our families.
How else can I boost my Scrip Anywhere account?
