Fundraising

One of our goals at Holy Cross School is to keep tuition low without jeopardizing the quality of the education we provide.  We are able to accomplish this, in part, by holding a limited number of fundraisers throughout the school year.  The success of our fundraisers has been and continues to be a direct result of the generosity of our parents, grandparents, parishioners, and individuals from the surrounding communities who want to make a difference by volunteering their time and talent, by sponsoring events, and by giving outright donations.

At Holy Cross School, we are sensitive to the demands that fundraising from other organizations places on our school families and friends.  We try to limit our fundraising to those projects providing the biggest value without “nickel and diming” those who are supportive.  Therefore, we have different types of fundraising projects.  We have those projects that:

  • provide funds for purchasing wish list items or subsidize school operations.  One of our major fundraising projects each year is our annual Fall Festival & Craft Faire, which is held on the grounds of Holy Cross.  Inflatables, carnival games, activities, a silent auction, crafters, entertainment, and food & drink provide something for everyone to enjoy.
  • teach our students the value of Christian charity.  We direct the funds from these projects toward a local, a national, and an international non-profit organization.  We target one organization during each trimester.  This is an important tool for educating our students about social justice.
  • provide rebates to Holy Cross School at no additional cost to the supporter.  Some of the rebate programs in which we participate include:
    • Redner’s
    • Shoparoo
    • Kids Stuff Coupon Books
    • Box Tops for Education
