Fundraising is an area that is extremely vital to the continued growth of the students’ learning environment. With today’s rapidly advancing technology, it is imperative that funds are available for new equipment, staff and building improvements. Fundraising provides a means towards achieving these goals without placing additional financial burdens on families through tuition increases. The revenue raised by these activites, along with the tuition provide the finacial backbone for the school.
Currently, each family is responsible for $180.00 in fundraising revenue. Any balance not met will result in your account being billed at the end of the year. Please note, report cards will be retained for any unpaid balance.
Currently, credit towards fundraising requirements is ONLY awarded for the following:

Giving Tuesday (known on social media as #GivingTuesday) is an international day of giving back. We practice gratitude on Thanksgiving, find great deals at the mall on Black Friday and score big discounts online on Cyber Monday. And now, we have a day dedicated to celebrating generosity.
This year, consider giving a small donation to our school as we prepare to begin major renovations to our bathrooms. We are celebrating our 65th Anniversary this year and would love to have you share this link with family and friends who would like to donate. All donations are tax deductible and all donations are accepted! Thank you in advance for your generosity.

Scrip is a fundraising program in which gift cards and certificates are purchased by St. Ambrose School from retailers at a discounted rate. Families and friends can purchase Scrip cards for everyday items (groceries, gas, restaurants, etc.) from St. Ambrose HSA at face value. After you have spent $200 for Scrip cards you will receive $5.00 towards your fundraising credit. For each $100 spent after that you will receive an additional $5.00 towards your fundraising credit. For example: If you purchase $500 in Scrip cards you will receive a fundraising credit of $20, $5 for the first $200 and $5 for each additional $100 spent which in this case was $300 or $15 in credit, for a total of $20.
