Fundraisers

"...to play an important role in raising funds to support school programs, equipment renovations and educational materials..."

 

Home & School Association Dues:  $10.00

Please join the Home & School Association.  Your participation and ideas are needed to make St. Basil an outstanding school and community.  You may send in your dues with your back-to-school packet or pay at the Home & School Meeting on September 19th at 6:30 pm.  Membership includes the St. Basil's School Directory, voting rights and assemblies.

 

Family Contribution:  $150.00

To meet our goals for supporting the school and enriching our children's experience here at St. Basil, we have fundraising activities (both large and small) throughout the year, which generates income that goes directly back into the school in various ways.  This includes the Ice Cream Social, Bingo Night, special receptions such as Science Fair and History Day, Teacher Appreciation Luncheon, assemblies, field trips and much more!
 
Our large fundraiser for 2013-2014 will once again be the Family Contribution.  This is a tax-deductible donation of $150 per family which serves to limit the amount of fundraising events expected of families throughout the year.  There are several ways to contribute:
  • Cash
  • Check payable to St. Basil the Great (please note H&S Contribution on memo line)
  • Payment by credit card through Online Giving

 

 

GIANT gift cards are available for purchase on the 1st and 3rd weekends of the month, after each mass in the Narthex. Gift cards are also available for purchase through the school.  Simply download this form and send into school with your payment. 

 

Scrip Program - 

Earn money for St. Basil's while you shop!  Simply use scrip gift cards for everyday purchases, and earn a rebate on each one at no additional cost.  Scrip is a major fundraiser for the school! There is no extra cost to you. When you purchase Scrip, you are purchasing a gift card to that vendor. The beauty of Scrip is that you put your regular household shopping dollars to work. You earn money for our school without spending a single additional penny. Just spend your regular shopping dollars with Scrip at the stores that participate in the program! Scrip can be used for just about any household purchase including food, clothing, entertainment, gasoline and even dining out.  Click here for a list of Scrip Retailers and the % rebates offered (For additional information, please contact scrip@stbasils.org)

 

Box Tops for Education Program - 

 
Box Tops can be found on hundreds of everyday products. Each time you clip one and send it in, the school receives $0.10 (free money!). While this doesn’t sound like a lot, when pooled together, the earnings can be significant for our school.  
 
So how can you help? When you shop in stores and online, look for products with the box top label above. Clip these and send them into school with your child. There will be collection bins in each classroom. We will collect, count and record the number of box tops received. Box tops will be collected from the classroom bins on the last Friday of every month. We will have a friendly contest among the students to see which class can collect the most. Prizes will be determined based on age. More details to come on the contest and awards in coming weeks.  
 
You can also log on to www.boxtops4education.com and play games, find coupons and many other ways we can earn additional box tops and dollars for our school!  For additional information, please contact our Box Tops coordinators:  Melissa Rubinich at mrubinich@verizon.net and Kristen Storti at cs1202@comcast.net.
