Important Information Regarding SCRIP Rebate Designations
Watertown Christian School (WCS) has received a ruling from the IRS regarding the SCRIP programs presently being used by exempt organizations such as WCS.
The SCRIP percentage rebates earned through purchases from HyVee, County Fair, and Zesto may be used for your child’s tuition, field trips, and other family expenses charged by WCS. You may also designate the rebate to be used for students other than your own. In these instances, a charitable contribution deduction is not allowed. If you wish these rebates to qualify for a charitable contribution deduction, you will have to designate the rebate as a contribution to the WCS Scholarship Fund, or General Fund. You will receive a receipt each January for these contributions.
The SCRIP percentage rebates earned through purchases from GLSC (Great Lakes SCRIP Center--INCLUDING ShopWithScrip and ScripNow products) are automatically transferred to the WCS General Fund and qualify as charitable contributions. You will receive a receipt each January for these contributions.
