What a great way to make Christian education more affordable!

What are ICS Store Cards?

Store Cards are a great opportunity offset your own school fees without spending an extra cent! It is a credit earning program that works while you shop. Everyday purchases can generate earnings.

How it works

Bulk quantities of gift certificates & gift cards are purchased at a discount. The certificates & cards are then sold to participating families at face value, with 100% of the discount passed on to your own family’s school fees (or allocated towards another family) for any given school year. Store Cards can be purchased through the Society office - there are many card options in stock at all times, but some will need to be ordered in advance. You can download the order forms here or fill one out at the office.

For example:

If one family spends $800 per month on groceries, this translates to a yearly expenditure of $9,600. Based on an average card return of 4%, this family would generate $384 in rebate revenue. From that, it is applied as a credit toward that family’s annual school fees for any given school year. And that's just groceries! ICS also offers Store Cards for coffee, dining, entertainment and many other options with varying rates of return, from 1-10%! Without spending an additional penny, participating families will lower their annual school fees. What a great way to make Christian education more affordable!

Who Can Participate?

Store Cards are open to parents, future parents, grandparents, school society members/donors and anyone in the community who wishes to participate. So tell everyone!!

Families planning for the future education of their children at Immanuel Christian Schools can also earn school fee credit. Immanuel Christian Schools will hold the amount of credits earned until enrollment in the school. Fee credits in Store Cards do not guarantee placement of the child at time of enrollment. Normal admission procedures and policies will still be followed.

How do I sign up?

Store Cards are ready to go!

Please contact the Society Office. Each participating family will be assigned an account number (which is generally the last four digits of your phone number). This account will be used to record your name, address, purchases and percentages earned for fundraising and school fee credits for the family. 

All distribution of the school fee credits will be applied to any outstanding balances first and then applied to current school fees. School fee credits are applied to the family’s account in December & June. A statement of school fee credits earned will be distributed twice per year during the months of November & May. Any discrepancies on the statement must be brought to the attention of the Society Office.

*Participation is optional.
