St. Patrick School offers a number of fundraisers to help raise money for the school. Participation in these fundraisers is essential to keeping costs down.
In addition, we offer several fundraisers to personally help you offset tuition and save for school trips, such as the annual junior high choir trip and the eighth grade trip!
Scrip - Gift Card & Certificate Program
St. Patrick School sells gift cards and certificates for many popular retail stores and restaurants, receiving a percentage of the face value of the card. The money received from the sale is applied toward the school and toward the tuition account of the family that made the sale. Scrip can be purchased by filling out an order form or by calling (217) 429-5363.
Earn service hours, tuition credit, or choir credit for selling pull-tabs at Bingo on Monday nights at the Macon County Fairgrounds. These will be credited for next year. Workers are asked to wear a green shirt to represent our school. Sign up online at SignUpGenius or by calling Billie (217) 358-0007.
Annual School Fund Drive
Each year St. Patrick School attempts to offset its operating expenses through an Annual School Fund Drive. This campaign reaches out to the parents, parishioners, alumni, faculty, grandparents, friends and the community for their support. All are encouraged to be receptive to pledging prayers for our students and staff and in doing whatever else is possible through service, donations or other financial gifts.
