St. Joseph School
Issaquah • Snoqualmie
About Our School - Fundraising
 

Tuition is established at a level where, combined with fundraising requirements, a St. Joseph School education is made available to families wishing to enroll their students. The Development Committee, under the direction of school administration, establishes and implements the means of securing all necessary funds, excluding tuition and fees, required to meet the budgeted operational needs of St. Joseph School. Parents are obligated to participate in three fundraising activities selected by the school.

  1. Annual Fund: all families are required to make a yearly gift where they are asked to consider the gap generated between their tuition and the full cost to educate each child. Each family is asked to be as generous as possible. This donation is tax deductible. Pledges are due by October 31 with payment paid in full by May 31 of each school year. Re-enrollment for the following year may be delayed until a pledge card is on file each year.
  2. Walk-A-Thon: all families are required to participate in or contribute to the walk-a-thon at a rate of $100 in pledges per family.
  3. Auction: all families are expected to procure $200 worth of items, services or cash and contribute to each child's class project.

OPTIONAL FUNDRAISING OPPORTUNITIES

St. Joseph School offers several additional opportunities for you to help raise funds for our school. These opportunities are optional but are an easy way for you to help when you grocery shop, put gas in your car, shop online, etc. See below to find out how easy it is!

Scrip:

You spend a big portion of your monthly budget on groceries and gas for your family. Did you know there's a way to make all that money work for you? By using scrip to pay for your grocery, gas and other purchases, you can earn funds for our school every time you shop. Gift cards are available for many leading grocery brands through our scrip program. Buy these gift cards from us to use at the grocery stores where you normally shop. You pay face value, your gift card is worth face value, and our organization earns a rebate on every gift card you purchase. It's really that simple! To purchase gift scrip you have two options:

OPTION 1: Purchase scrip directly at school -
  Sale times at each campus are:
     Issaquah - Monday AM Drop-off and Wednesday PM Pick-up
     Snoqualmie - Tuesday AM Drop-off and Friday PM Pick-up

OPTION 2: Fill out an order form, send it to school, have your cards delivered in your Thursday envelope, it's that easy. CLICK HERE for an order form.

E-Scrip:

Have you signed up with eScrip.com?  Different than Scrip cards, eScrip is a way to raise money for our school just by shopping at the stores you already shop at. Register your Safeway Club Card at eScrip.com and every time you shop at Safeway St. Joe's will earn a percentage back on your purchases. Also at eScrip.com is a link to their online mall--which includes over a thousand stores. After registering, if you click thru this link to shop, SJS will earn money back on those purchases as well.  Think about doing this for your online Christmas shopping or anytime you shop online.  It is FREE money for OUR school.  It is the easiest fundraising you will do all year. CLICK HERE to view a video on how to sign up.
