CPCS RAISERIGHT PROGRAM

What is RaiseRight (formerly Scrip)?
RaiseRight is a simple way to pay for your family’s everyday purchases and earn money back on your tuition. You can use RaiseRight gift cards in place of cash, checks, and credit cards at your favorite stores, gas stations, restaurants, etc.

How it Works
You purchase RaiseRight gift cards from CPCS school office or order online via your computer or phone at face value and the school orders those cards at a reduced price. The difference becomes an instant rebate for your family to use toward your tuition bill. It’s that easy! The more you use it, the more benefit you will receive. With just a little planning, you can use RaiseRight cards to shop for your monthly budgeting needs and your family can have the benefit of reducing your tuition bill. You can also choose to donate a percentage to CPCS or to another family to help with their tuition costs.

Check out these great features:

  • Plastic Cards – These are regular plastic gift cards. These are subject to the order deadline dates listed on the RaiseRight Order Forms. Note: There are also limited quantities of QFC/Fred Meyer/Kroger, Starbucks, Panera Bread, Chipotle, Wal-Mart, Qdoba and Red Robin in the school office. These items are available until all sold.
  • Reloads – Some retailers offer Reload on the plastic cards you purchase through Scrip– so no more waiting for the next order deadline.
  • E-certificates are available for some retailers and are available for use on your computer or mobile device within minutes of purchasing.

FAQs

Q: What is RaiseRight (formerly Scrip)?
A: RaiseRight is purchasing gift cards or certificates that are used just like cash at participating stores, and getting a percentage back.

Q: Does RaiseRight cost me more money?
A: No! If you pay $50, you get RaiseRight worth $50. You pay the same but the school benefits from your planned shopping.

Q: How do I order RaiseRight using a paper order form?
A: If using an order form attach a check (no cash) and deliver to your school office by 3:00 pm by the order due date.  You have the option of having the RaiseRight sent home with your student or you can pick it up in the school office.

Q: How long does it take to get the gift cards?
A: Gift Cards are typically ready for pick up on Thursday or Friday the week following the order date if you used the paper order form. If you order online, some gift cards can be placed in your digital wallet immediately.

Q: So how does this new “Tuition Assistance Program with Scrip” work?
A: Fill out the TAPS form. Purchase RaiseRight Gift Cards. The school records your purchases. Families need to accumulate a minimum of $50 worth of discount percentages (profit) to have tuition credits applied to their tuition statement. Accumulated amounts less than $50 at the end of the RaiseRight fiscal year (February 28, 2023) will be automatically applied to the school Financial Aid fund. Tuition credits will be posted to your April statement.

Q: How do we earn Tuition Credits?
A: Each RaiseRight item has a percentage discount associated with it. The tuition credit received is 100% of the percentage shown next to the item on the order form.

Q: Now I’m confused!
A: For example:

  • Purchase $500 per month of QFC/Fred Meyer Scrip for 6 months ($3,000 total)
  • The QFC/Fred Meyer discount is 4%
  • You accrue 100% of that discount amount (4% of the amount spent) towards Tuition Credit (remember, a minimum of $50 accumulated is necessary to receive credit)
  • In this example, 4% of the $3,000 you spent to purchase Scrip equals $120.00
  • By simply planning ahead and purchasing the $3,000 in QFC/Fred Meyer, you receive $120 Tuition Credit applied directly to your Cedar Park account.

Q: I still have questions, who can I ask?
A: Contact Bea Orton via email or call the Lynnwood campus at 425-774-7773.
