Gift Card Program Revised for 2014

The Shop with Scrip tuition reimbursement program has changed. The tuition credits will start with your very first order! No more threshold to meet. The profit generated by buying cards will be split 50% to the school and 50% towards your tuition.

 

No one will lose any credit they accrued during the old policies time frame. 

 

The change is so everyone can benefit right away and the school will get increased revenue from the program.

OFFICIAL NOTICE

Rockville Centre—Ursuline Sister Joanne Callahan, Diocesan  Superintendent of Schools, is recognized as an official with authority to respond to Revenue Procedure

(75-50) which was published in the Internal Revenue Bulletin dated December 8, 1975.

In conformity with the IRS regulation, notice is hereby given that the schools of the Diocese of Rockville Centre admit students of any race to all the rights, privileges, programs and activities generally accorded or made available to students at the schools and that the schools do not discriminate on the basis of race in administration of their education policies, scholarship and loan programs, and athletic and other school-administered programs.

Sister Joanne further explained that the very notion of racial discrimination is diametrically opposed to the concept of Christian communities that our schools strive to be.  She also pointed out that our Catholic schools have always welcomed and have been enriched by students from various ethnic groups.

Does Your Company Have a Matching Funds Program?
 
If so, your donations to OLM can easily be doubled!  Some companies will even "match" your volunteer time with dollars!  In other words, if you volunteer at OLM, your employer will convert your volunteer hours into dollars and provide a check to OLM to match your efforts.
