In addition to our two major fundraisers, there are a number of opportunities that exist for donating to STA that require little time or are “effortless fundraising” opportunities including the following options:
SCRIP Program [Gift Cards]
Scrip is a nationally recognized fundraising program. The term scrip means “substitute money.” School families, parish families, staff members and the community are invited to purchase scrip in the form of gift certificates from national and local retailers that can be used just like cash. Scrip can be used to purchase everyday items like groceries, clothing, gas and other essentials. With every purchase, businesses donate a certain percentage of the Scrip monies to STA. Order forms are available in the School Office.
Boxtops for Education
Families are encouraged to save Boxtops from participating products and send them to school where they are collected and redeemed for classroom materials. Students have the opportunity to earn a N.U.T. card at various times throughout the year as a reward for collecting them.
For more information on how you can give to STA please contact Mary Alice Howard, Director of Advancement at 773-667-1142 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
