FUNDRAISING FOR OUR SCHOOL
Part of our responsibility as members of the St. Richard School family is to help financially
support our school and parish. One of the most effective ways to do this is through fundraising.
Fundraising is part of every Catholic school environment and a special way of building
community, school spirit, camaraderie and leadership. It also helps supplement the school’s
annual operating income so that the tuition and fees do not place an unrealistic burden on our
families, and parents are always encouraged to assume an active, hands-on, role in leading
Queen of Hearts Mandatory Fundraiser
At St. Richard, our school families are required to participate in our Queen of Hearts weekly
raffle fundraiser by purchasing a total of $100 in Queen of Hearts raffle tickets during the school year. Tickets are sold in a set of six tickets for $5.00 and are available for purchase in the school office. Drawings are held every Thursday at 4:00 p.m. in the school office and
Principal Augustyn records the drawings live each week on Facebook. All raffle tickets will be
discarded following the drawing each week and new raffle tickets must be purchased to
participate in the next weekly drawing. For rules and more information, CLICK HERE.
Other Fundraising Activities
St. Richard Schools also hosts other fundraising activities throughout the year, including an Affy Tapple Taffy Apple and Double Good Popcorn sales in the Fall, a World’s Finest Chocolate Sale in the Spring, as well as restaurant dine-outs, Scholastic Book Fairs; various events and more. Additionally, other fundraising projects may be undertaken by the school as a whole or by individual classes or committees to meet specific needs throughout the course of the school year.
We will continue to look for fundraising activities that are not a burden to our families and students, and always welcome suggestions.
Please contact the school marketing and development office at firstname.lastname@example.org if you wish to get involved with fundraising or have any suggestions.
