For example, If you purchase a $100 Jewel gift card, it is worth $100. St. Alphonsus has purchased that card for $95, which generated a $5 profit. The profit is then split 50% as an educational credit and 50% to St. Alphonsus (1/2 each to the parish and AACA).
- If your child or grandchild attends AACA, we will credit their FACTS account.
- If your child or grandchild attends Religious Education, we will credit their account.
- If you, your child, or your grandchild attends any educational institution in the country (high school, college, graduate school, law school, other elementary schools, etc), we will issue a check to that institution and give it to you for submission.
- If you are paying student loans, we will issue a check to that institution and give it to you for submission.
All credits are given twice a year in November and April.
So, it is possible to generate hundreds of dollars in tuition savings as well as raise funds for the church and school. All that you have to do is to purchase gift cards for the stores you will be shopping at. We are not asking you to spend any more, just asking you pay for the items with gift cards. If we don't have your favorite place on hand, we probably can find it from the many resources that sell gift cards.
