Home & School On-Going Fundraisers
Fundraising has become necessary for many organizations and our school is no exception. Your Home & School has a committee that is working very hard to make sure continual fundraising does not overwhelm or burden our families. The fundraisers listed here do not cost anything–just a little time and effort.
Shoparoo: With the free Shoparoo app, simply take pictures of all your grocery receipts with your phone and school receives a donation! Download the app from the Apple App Store or Google Play Store and select Mary Queen of Saints Catholic Academy (the one that does not say Lincoln or Greenfield). If you don’t have a smart phone, please send your grocery receipts to school as soon as possible because they’re only valid for 14 days after the receipt date. Invite others to participate!
GFS Marketplace: You can help us raise money while you shop for restaurant quality products at Gordon Food Service (GFS). Up to 10% of your purchases can be rebated back to us and it doesn’t cost you anything. Sign-up to be a Fun Funds member online at: http://gfs.com/funfunds/home.page?OrgNumber=2523925 or at a GFS. By enrolling online, you will get a link to print both a coupon for $10 off your first purchase of $50 or more and a $10 donation certificate to MQS on your second purchase of $50 or more. Ask your family and friends to join, too!
Cousins: The 2nd Wednesday of the month is MQS Night at the Cousins Subs at 9124 W. Lincoln Avenue from 4-8pm. Cousins generously donates 10% of sales to MQS.
Take Charge of Education: Our school participates in a program offered by Target where we receive up to 1% of purchases made with a Target credit or debit card registered in Mary Queen of Saint’s name, #17140. You can register your card at a store kiosk, by calling 800-316-6142 or online at: www.Target.com/tcoe. Last year we received $2,223.
General Mills Box Tops: We also collect General Mills Box Tops for Education logos that are worth 10 cents each. You can find these logos on General Mills, Betty Crocker Hefty, Ziploc and many more. Go to: www.boxtops4education.com for a complete list of products. Last year we raised $1,735.
Campbell’s Soup Labels: Through the efforts in saving these labels, we are able to redeem free merchandise. Clip and save UPCs from participating products. A complete list of eligible products can be found at: www.labelsforeducation.com. Last year we received a coffee maker, a writing center for our kindergarten classes and other classroom items.
Market Day: Market Day continues to be a success as a monthly fundraising program where you can buy restaurant quality food at grocery store prices. Market Day offers bulk foods for large families and also has single-serving sizes that are great for small families and single people. As an MQS family, 10% of your monthly purchases count toward your profit commitment. You can also get credit for orders placed by family members or friends. Just let the Market Day Coordinator know which customers should be counted toward your commitment. Pick-up is the second Tuesday at MQS and the second Saturday at St. Rita. Specific dates can be found here. Last year we earned $6,000.
www.goodsearch.com is a free search engine that pays us for every search you do. Select Mary Queen of Saints Catholic Academy the first time you search and we will receive funds for your searches, purchases and even surveys.
Soda Can Tabs. MQS also saves soda can tabs to benefit organizations such as the Ronald McDonald House. We encourage our children to participate in such worthy causes and to understand the importance of their support.
These fundraisers are free. Please share this information with your neighbors, co-workers and family members who are not part of our school. It is easy to save labels, milk caps or to register your Target card to Mary Queen of Saints. People are happy to help out if we just ask them. Just remember, no pain, all gain!
