$crip Program

About $crip

The $crip Program is an ongoing program which benefits Archbishop Bergan Catholic School and it's students.

This program lets our School purchase gift certificates/cards (called $crip) at a discount from vendors. 

These certificates or gift cards are then resold to parents, parishioners, and other community members for their face value for each retailer you shop; and use them just like cash.  There are NO extra hidden fees. A certificate or gift card you buy for $25.00 gets you $25.00 in products or services.  Bergan gets the discount difference.

You can use $crip to purchase everyday expenses like food, clothing, and gas for your car.  You can also use them for appliances (large & small), as well as home improvement projects!

$crip Rebate & Profit Designation

The rebate amount helps reduce your own students' tuition or a designated student/family tuition for Archbishop Bergan Catholic School.

Each time you complete an order form, you can designate that your generated $crip profit be given for tuition for a particular student or family.

If you designate Archbishop Bergan Catholic School, the profits from the $crip Program go to the General Fund of Archbishop Bergan Catholic School and everyone in our School family benefits in one way or another from the profit of the $crip program.  $crip helps pay for the operating expense of the school which provides Catholic education to our youth.  Whenever you purchase $crip certificates/cards, Archishop Bergan Catholic School receives cash back in the amount of 2% to 25%.  This is at NO cost to you!
