TRIP (Tuition Reduction Incentive Program)
How TRIP Works
Families purchase TRIP gift cards and use them instead of cash to shop at the stores or restaurants they normally frequent. Hundreds of grocery, gasoline, retail, restaurant, online stores and more participate in TRIP. You receive dollar-for-dollar gift certificates to use at your favorite places and each store donates a percentage of the total purchase to OLL. PLUS, 50% of the percentage received by OLL is earmarked for your family to help reduce your tuition bill for next year. During summer months and special times during the year, families can earn 60% or even 70% of this percentage!
How to Sign Up
Packets with registration forms are sent home at the beginning of the school year to parents. You can join anytime. Additional packets and registration forms are available at the school office and the parish center. You can also email TRIP@ollonline.org for information.
