Fundraisers

As a school community, we have chosen fundraising as a way of keeping the cost of tuition down. Please scroll down to learn about the major fundraisers we currently participate in. New ideas for fundraising are always welcome!

SCRIP – Gift Card Purchase Program


The SCRIP program involves purchasing gift cards for stores that you would normally shop at anyway, then use these in lieu cash or charge. Cards are available for all kinds of places including grocery stores, restaurants, gas stations, department stores, etc. The percentage of the profit for our school varies based on the place. Anyone can participate in this program and you can even collect orders from your family and friends to help build our profit! Be sure to check with family, neighbors, and friends to see if they would like to support our fundraiser while making shopping easier for them!

Where can I get them?
SCRIP gift cards can be purchased in the church vestibule after each mass; directly from the Rectory during their open hours, or by sending Becky Davidson an order via email. Please contact Becky at bdavidson393@gmail.com for any other questions about the SCRIP program.

Please click the link below to see a list of participating vendors.
