WTPSPA (Formerly SCRIP)

NDA is now a part of the West Toledo Parochial School Parents Association

Please read the following letter from WTPSPA:

Dear WTSPA Customer,

I am Andrew Ranazzi and with Diane Fockler, my partner, we have run, since 1998, the WTPSPA, a non-parish/school affiliated scrip program.  We invite you to start earning for your child’s education using a scrip program, like the one you are used to, that doesn’t close its doors (even for a week) and provides you with unprecedented tuition earning opportunities. 

The WTPSPA is a thousand parent organization that makes nearly $140,000 for its member parents. The success of the WTPSPA, without benefit of a school or parish infrastructure from where to collect orders or payments, can be attributed to several simple philosophies. 

They are, in reverse order of importance:

WE GET YOUR FAMILIES WHAT THEY PAID FOR RIGHT AWAY!

WTPSPA families order Wednesday by 9 a.m., they get their scrip ALL the time by Thursday morning.  This means most of the time they get their scrip before their account gets hit by the ACH.  The WTPSPA also cuts checks to its families on the last order day of the fiscal year…that SAME DAY!  So if you want the best selection of local (Marcos, Loma Lindas, Magic Wok) and national (McDonald’s & Target) vendors as well as EVERY GROCERY STORE (including the only place you can buy KROGERS) FAST…we are your only place to scrip shop.

OPEN EVERY WEEK!

WTPSPA hasn’t EVER taken two weeks off in a given year and has a string of nearly 470 consecutive weeks since it’s last week off in April of 2007.  The WTPSPA is the Cal Ripken of scrip programs.  Consistency is the theme here.  Our families can count on us every week.  Your financial obligations don’t take weeks off, have snow days or school holidays and neither should your program.  This is where our online ordering application “iScrip” is an invaluable asset because Monday/Tuesday snow days or school holidays don’t matter as everyone is ordering and paying online.  With no weeks off our parents get a routine down and will chew an arm off before they make a sizeable purchase without scrip.

DON’T TAKE ANY OF YOUR FAMILIES’ EARNINGS!

THE WTPSPA takes the first $40 of a family’s earnings.  After that you keep every dollar.  The WTPSPA also has several incentives where you can get that $40 back and more making it easy for you to keep every dollar.  The WPSPA has a set amount so that parents are encouraged to use the program in as much volume as possible knowing they keep every dollar after number 40.  A parish who takes a “mandatory” percentage of 25-50% is not inducing you to buy in volume.  Further, you can earn a lot more and then make a gift to church or school that you can then tax deduct it because it is voluntary. 

HOW THE WTPSPA WORKS!

We will make arrangements for you to get your pickup box key after you have placed your first order. If we can assign you a pickup box with a family you know we will do that, if not, you’ll get a box that will still allow for great convenience when picking up your order.

Arrangements have been made with Notre Dame Academy to have your order dropped off at the school for your pick up convenience if that is what you prefer!

The order deadline is 11:45 am Wednesday. Just place your order online.

ALSO…welcome to iScrip…to get registered for iScrip do the following:
Go to http://wtpspa.nosa.us then type in “new” under user
id and “102” under password and you will be prompted to sign up as a new family.  You won’t be able to login until you reply and tell me you did this.  After that reply I’ll approve your iScrip application immediately so you can begin ordering.

WE NEED YOUR ACH PAPERWORK (Available at http://wtpspa.nosa.us/files/user/wtpspa_ach.pdf) SO YOUR PAYMENT CAN BE DEDUCTED FROM YOUR ACCOUNT WEDNESDAYS AT 11:45 A.M.

Also, please feel free to refer any other families to our program. We are growing and welcome any families that want to ease the financial burden of parochial school’s tuition.  Your referrals get you bonuses that can be used to offset the $40 fee and used to pay your child’s fees and tuition. 

We use e-mail, exclusively, to contact WTPSPA members, so check it regularly.
You can learn more here http://wtpspa.nosa.us/content/page/shared/faq http://wtpspa.nosa.us/content/page/shared/rules, or http://wtpspa.nosa.us/
