Fundraising activities are a VERY important part of our school’s financial success.
We undertake fundraising in an effort to keep tuition as low as possible for our families. We know how difficult it is to make ends meet, and we see fundraising as a relatively GREAT community enriched way for our school to generate the needed funding. Our fundraisers are supported by our HTCS families, friends, neighbors, coworkers, and so on. We try very hard to select only the most appealing and profitable fundraising projects.
Two of our key fundraising projects are the ongoing sale of Scrip (Gift Cards for Guardians) and the Holy Trinity Bingo (Tuesday & Friday evenings at the Middle School). All families are asked to participate in these two significant fundraising opportunities. Please see the detailed separate page of this web site for each of these fundraisers.
Throughout the year we conduct a number of other fundraising projects and ask for our school families participation.
For the 2018-2019 school year, the minimum fundraising goal for each family (regardless of how many enrolled HTCS students) is a $450 profit. Many of our families go far above the minimum and we express our sincerest gratitude to all who help in so many ways with these activities.
Please note fundraising activities are optional. Families who do not want to participate in fundraising efforts may opt out with a buyout payment of $650 made payable prior to the start of the school year.
Additionally, families are not required to participate in every fundraiser. They may select which projects will work best for their situation. The only requirement is that each family generate at least $450 in profit by the end of the school year. Statements will be distributed throughout the year so families may know their progress toward their goal. Families who fail to meet the $450 minimum will be billed for the difference at the end of the year. Fundraising credits are not carried forward from year to year.
