Northfield Montessori SCRIP Program

When families use prepaid gift cards to pay for everyday purchases (gasoline, groceries, clothing, toys, gifts), a percentage is given to Northfield Montessori through the Great Lakes Scrip Program (GLSC). 


How does it generate revenue?

Because the Scrip is prepaid, participating retailers offer substantial discounts. NM buys the scrip from GLSC at a discount, and re-sells the certificates to families like yours for face value. The discount (between 2-15% - sometimes greater) is the organization’s revenue.


What is the incentive?

Families help produce revenue by making regular household purchases that they would make anyway. As an added incentive, NM will pass 50% of revenue generated by your purchase back to you in the form of tuition credit.


Example: You purchase $100 card from Kwik Trip. NM receives 9% back ($9). You will then see a $4.50 credit on your tuition invoice.


How to Sign Up

Provide Jeanie with your NAME, EMAIL ADDRESS, and YEAR OF BIRTH. You can make a note in person, send via the form below, or provide over the phone (507-663-1279).


Jeanie will place your first order. You will receive a welcome email from GLSC. After logging in for the first time, you may update your password. You are then able to place your own future orders. 



All orders are kept in queue until they are approved on the 1st and 15th of every month. Gift cards are ready for pick-up at NM in approximately one week.
