Dot’s Dollars is similar to programs you may have heard of referred to as SCRIPT or MANNA. This is a great program to help families contribute money toward St. Dorothy School and earn discounts on tuition.
To participate in the program you simply buy gift cards to major stores. Each store contributes a percentage of the sale to Saint Dorothy and to you! For example: SWISS FARMS stores have a 2.5% in the percentage column of the Dot’s Dollars Order form. This means 2.5% of the $25.00 card goes to your tuition and 2.5% goes to Saint Dorothy Home & School Association.
Gift cards from a wide variety of stores can be purchased each week, as well as, a great number of stores that can be special ordered. The special order forms are located on the school website and it takes one week to receive a special order. Check out the shopwithscrip.com website to see the many stores that support this program. When on the home page, click “Shop” and you can browse through the list of stores.
The key to saving money by using the Dot’s Dollars program is to be consistent and get in the habit of purchasing cards for everything from home improvements (Home Depot and Lowes) to birthday gifts (Barnes and Noble or Toys R Us card and many more). You will be surprised how much you save on your tuition while also contributing that amount to the school.
*Your credits will be distributed quarterly (approximately two weeks prior to tuition payment due dates). You will receive a check made payable to Saint Dorothy in the amount of the credits you earned. This check can be put in your tuition envelope as payment toward your tuition.
Dot’s Dollars are available for sale every Friday, unless otherwise noted, between 9 am and 11 am in the Annex.
They are also sold the 2nd and 4th Thursdays of the month in the evening. School families will be informed of the time and location for the evening sales.
Dot’s Dollars are also sold at Hospitality Sunday in the school gym.
A completed form and check can also be sent into school with your child and the order will be filled by the following Friday. We will contact you to make arrangements for the pickup.
Order forms are available on the Forms page. Simply fill out your form and purchase your cards.
