What is TRIP?
Lorien Wood’s Tuition Reduction Incentive Program (TRIP) helps families reduce tuition through their purchases of gift cards—from and for your favorite retailers—for goods and services (e.g. groceries, gas, pizza, household goods, etc.) normally used in the course of daily life. For a complete list of participating retailers, arranged by category, click here.
How does TRIP reduce my tuition at Lorien Wood?
When you purchase gift cards or eCards from any of the hundreds of participating retailers at RaiseRight.com, Lorien Wood earns rebates from these retailers. As an incentive to use this program, Lorien Wood will apply 50% of the rebates from your purchases to your family’s tuition account.
Rebates range from 1% to 20% or even more, depending on the retailer. Over time, the rebates really add up! For starters, Lorien Wood recommends families commit to planning and paying for one regular and significant purchase – such as groceries each month – through this program.
How much can a single family's grocery purchases raise for Lorien Wood in a year?
Grocery Spending 4% Rebate to the School Tuition Benefit Applied
$100/Week $208 $104
$200/Week $416 $208
$300/Week $624 $312
As you add in pizza delivery nights, an occasional night at the movies, gift cards to various stores for family and friends at Christmas or birthdays, sporting goods, books, clothing, even major appliance purchases, etc., your financial blessing to Lorien Wood multiplies – as do the dollars subtracted from your family’s tuition.
How much money could I earn?
Families who participate can easily earn anywhere from $50 to perhaps even $1000 or more off their total tuition, depending on how actively they participate. Extended family, such as grandparents, and friends can help you out as well. (Contact a program administrator for more information.)
When do I receive the tuition credit?
Twice per year: Rebates are processed in January and July. Rebates collected through December 31 will be credited toward your account in January. Rebates accumulated from January 1 through end of fiscal year June 30 will be credited toward your account in July.

I signed up, now how do I place orders and pay for my order?
Once you have registered at RaiseRight.com, you can shop for plastic gift cards, reload additional value to reloadable cards previously acquired, or purchase immediately available eGift Cards.
Reload and eGift Card purchases can be made anytime. All plastic gift card orders will be released for delivery every month (with occasional additional deliveries for holidays) and sent home in a special envelope in your child’s backpack on the last Thursday of the month. Plastic card orders must be submitted by the Friday before each delivery date.
You have two options for payment: an ACH from your banking account (for a $0.29 per order fee) or a credit card payment (with a 2.9% fee). All orders must be prepaid; we do not accept checks or use the check option on the website.
For technical questions or help regarding account setup or order process as well as shopping tips and to learn how to get the most out of TRIP for your family and school, contact your Lorien Wood TRIP Manager Heather Etner at Heather.Etner@LorienWood.org.
