TRIP is online, through an online supplier, FundScrip.
Here are a few highlights of the new program:

  • MORE vendors available to increase your earnings
  • Purchase e-Gift cards for immediate use
  • Order from the comfort of your home with shipment to the school
  • For those out of area, gift cards can be mailed directly to the purchaser
  • Paper orders will still be accepted at the school if you do not have access to a computer (although cards will not be available for immediate pick-up)
  • The discount will continue to be split between the school and the family at 50/50

The Hamilton - Calvin Christian School Tuition Reduction Incentive Program (TRIP) is an exciting opportunity to accumulate credit toward tuition obligations. Since you already shop at many participating merchants, doesn't it make sense to enroll in TRIP and reduce your (or someone else's) tuition cost at the same time?

Through TRIP, gift certificates from grocery stores, restaurants, and many other businesses are available for purchase online. Discounts can vary by suppliers, and 50% of the discount reduces your tuition.

Each week, all gift cards ordered on FundScrip are delivered to the school. For those family members out of the area, cards can also be mailed. Weekly recurring orders can be automated. You can also order e-Gift cards for specific companies as noted on the website, which are sent via e-mail and available for immediate use. There are also select vendors who offer reloadable gift cards.

You need not have a student enrolled in the Hamilton - Calvin Christian School to participate.

Registrants may direct tuition credit they earn to their own personal account, the account of another family, or to the CCS Tuition Assistance Fund, which provides need-based financial aid awards to current families. Young families, who intend to send their children to CCS in the future, are encouraged to join the program as well, but be aware that being in the TRIP program does not guarantee placement of the child when it is time for enrollment. Normal admissions procedures and policies will still be followed. TRIP certificates are transferable to any Christian school affiliated with the Ontario Alliance of Christian Schools (OACS).

TRIP participants may also place orders for relatives or friends. Family and friends may register their own TRIP account, and they may designate any one or more accounts to receive the credits for the entire year.

Right now would be a terrific time for you to consider your participation in the TRIP program. Many families start slowly with just the regular purchase of grocery certificates. Recall some of the expenses your family has incurred this year. Could you use TRIP cards and earn money towards tuition?
