Supporting St. Francis

Raising Funds For Academics, Athletics And More

Our Home-School Association (HSA) plays a key role in organizing a variety of “fun”draisers to support our academic and athletic programs, including field trips and other events.

The HSA works hard to help build a strong relationship between parents, teachers, and students in order to create a more involved, engaged school community. By hosting school community events, organizing volunteers, and planning teacher appreciation events, they help create the close-knit and supportive environment we all love here at St. Francis.

More information about the HSA can be found on the HSA webpage and Facebook page.  Interested in volunteering?  Sign up here.

Ways To Support SFdS

In addition to our major fundraising events, we also offer these ways to support St. Francis all year long:

  • Target (SFDS ID #17886)
  • Giant Card A-Plus Bonus Bucks designated for SFDSCS 
  • BoxTops for Education
  • Event Sponsor

Use the app to simply scan your receipts after you go to the grocery store.  The app automatically identifies eligible purchases and adds them to the school’s account.  The school then receives a check twice a year with the earnings we’ve helped raise. Friends/family can participate.

  • SCRIP

Get tuition credits and volunteer hours by purchasing gift cards for restaurants, grocery stores, and many other items.  You can purchase gift cards for places you’re already going to be spending money (like Land’s End for uniforms!).  The school then earns money for each purchase made.  You can purchase SCRIP as outlined below:

  1. Send in a completed SCRIP form along with a check in an envelope to the school office.  We will send the cards home with your child.
  2. Purchase from the church business office in person.
  3. Use the Raise Right app.

Volunteer

Every family is required to volunteer at least 30 hours each year.  Volunteer opportunities are available at all HSA fundraising events.  Sign up HERE to volunteer today.  

While we encourage everyone to get involved, we also recognize that for some families, meeting the required volunteer hours can be a struggle.  If you are unable to meet the requirement, you may apply for the sunshine fund, which is a pool of hours donated by other SFdS families for those in need.  Information about the sunshine fun, including applications and forms to donate hours, can be found below:
