Like all non-profit schools, we rely on tuition income, volunteerism, and other fundraising activities to support our programs. Tuition alone does not cover the full expense of a St. Alphonsus/St. Patrick Catholic School education.
Listed below are a number of fund raising programs and events that you can participate in to help ensure our school community continued success.
Our S.H.O.P. program offers shopping certificates/gift cards for over 100 stores, restaurants, gas stations, hotels and more. For new families, and "old" ones, this is the easiest fundraiser we have - and it costs nothing. You just purchase certificates/cards for the places you already shop, and you get the full value you have spent. The stores give back to us a percentage of the value. The money earned will be credited toward your family's fundraising goal.
You can either order the certificates through the returned Family envelope, or you can come in on Tuesday morning to purchase them directly. See the SHOP section of this site for more details.
All funds raised by the SHOP program are put into the general fund, offsetting school tuition. The SHOP program typically raises over $10,000 annually.
Market Day is a great way to buy many of the food items you normally buy for your family and the profits go to our school. You can even enter your Market Day orders on the Market Day website and pick them up at the school. Our school number is 3260.
All funds raised by the Market Day program benefit the Family School Association. This program typically raises $300-$400 per month.
