9 easy ways YOU can earn money for your school

#1 – Box Tops for Education

Clip tops and earn cash for St. Matthew School! Find Box Tops coupons on hundreds of your favorite products. Each Box Top coupon is worth 10¢ for our school. Clip and send the Box Tops to school. Our school will collect the Box Tops and send them to Box Tops for Education(www.boxtops4education.com). Twice each year, Box Tops will send a check to our school for each Box Tops coupon redeemed, up to $20,000 each year. We will have a contest each semester to see which class can collect the most Box Tops, and the winning class will get a pizza party!

#2 – Scrip

When you purchase scrip, you are purchasing negotiable gift certificates that are used just like cash. The national and local retailers issue the scrip where many of you already shop. You can use scrip to purchase everyday expenses like clothing, gas, and other essentials. They also make great Christmas and birthday gifts. Orders will be made once a month (check the school calendar for dates). With every purchase you make, we earn revenue for our school. (SCRIP Enrollment Form)

#3 – Max Dollars For Education

You can help our school earn Max Dollars by using your Max Card each time you shop at County Market or Cub Foods from August 24 — mid-October. This program does not cost anything, and will not take away from your personal Max Rewards you are already earning. Registration forms are available at your local County Market and only take a minute to complete (Note: You must re-register your Max Card each year). Then use your Max Card every time you shop. It’s that easy. We will be registering cards at Fee Day!

#4 – Schnucks eScrip

Customers in Savoy, Champaign and Urbana who are presently using a Schnucks Customer Card for Fuel Rewards may register that card to earn eScrip contributions by calling (800) 931-6258 or registering online. The Schnucks eScrip Customer Card may be used to generate both eScrip contributions and Fuel Rewards, where available. The more you shop the more we can earn! Online enrollment and more information

#5 – Book Fair

The Scholastic Book Fair is held at the school every November, usually before and during the Parent-Teacher Conferences. Funds from the book fair are used to buy additional school and classroom library books and other resources. In addition, rebates, either in the form of additional books or cash are sometimes earned. Encourage your child’s love of reading while supporting St. Matthew School.

#6 – St. Matthew Apparel

Show your pride in St. Matthew School! On Fee Day and during Parent-Teacher Conferences in November, apparel items for students, parents, and siblings are available for sale. Specific items are approved for students to wear in the classroom. Items can be purchased mid-year by contacting the apparel chair.

#7 – School Kits

Orders are taken in March/April for school kits for the following school year. All proceeds from items purchased go toward the purchase of school wish list items. More information

#8 – Winter Carnival

Winter Carnival, our top fundraiser, is always the highlight of Catholic Schools Week. Consider donating a special item for your child’s classroom basket or the silent auction. Buy raffle tickets for your chance at the grand prize or free tuition.
