It is our responsibility to support St. Richard School by augmenting its annual operating income by raising funds so that the tuition and fees do not place an unrealistic burden on School families.
Fundraising is part of a Catholic school environment and a special way of building community, school spirit, camaraderie, and leadership. School families are required to participate in fundraisers; and parents are always encouraged to assume an active, hands-on, role.
On-going Fundraising Activities
Clip the Box Tops logo/coupon from participating General Mills products and send-in the Box Top with your child to School. The more Box Tops we can collect, the more money our School will receive! For more information:
Same as with Box Tops, but more products to work with! Clip the Labels for Education logo/coupon from participating products such as Campbell’s, Post Cereals, Pepperidge Farm, Dannon, BIC, Pop-Secret, etc. and send-it-in with your child to School. There are so many products that you’ll have to look at their site for the full list of products at: www.labelsforeducation.com.
Tuition Incentive Program (T.I.P.) Certificates
A variety of local retailers are offering TIP certificates that can be used to purchase their merchandise. Use TIP certificate like cash for favorite stores, restaurants, gas stations, movie theaters, etc. If you’re going to shop, you might as well help fundraise and get credit for it! You can obtain TIP certificates at the Parish Office.
You will receive 10% before taxes on each order you submit with your parish number towards your fundraising obligation. Place your Market Day orders online at www.marketday.com. School code: 2003; or utilize the paper order (copy sent home with student or can be found at church).
If you need additional assistance, have any questions, or need help placing an order, contact Market Day Chairperson Gail Rybakowski at 773-504-9900.
Our fundraisers include, but are not limited to the ones listed above, such as the Campbell's and General Mills Box Tops for Education promotions, Market Day, Tuition Incentive Program (T.I.P.), as there are also restaurant/dine-out events, book fairs, major sport skybox raffle, holiday gatherings, annual carnival, super bingo/raffle, etc.
We will continue to look for fundraising activities that are not a burden to our families and students, and always welcome suggestions. Throughout the course of the year other projects may be undertaken by the School as a whole or by individual classes or committees to meet specific needs.
