3 Ways to Support DMS Year-Round

SCRIP Scrip is a gift card that is used like cash at many participating retailers. It can be used for everyday purchases like gas, groceries, dry cleaning and also makes a great gift!

Dubuque Montessori School purchases gift cards from many businesses at a discount. Families purchase those gift cards from DMS at face value. Dubuque Montessori School keeps the difference, which goes into the fundraising account to help run our school.

To get started, go to and use enrollment code B14FB1LD4661 to register with DMS to receive the profits. Check out the order dates for 2022-2023 school year!
