St. Anne Catholic Grade School is active in many different fundraising programs.

Please remember to provide the whole label with the UPC bar code. The product must say Labels for Education to qualify.

General Mills Box Tops for Education:
We receive 10c for each box top collected. Simply cut out Box Tops and send them to school office. The Box Top needs to say official coupon and have an expiration date. Please note that coupons that are expired will not be counted. For specific products that carry these Box Tops, you can go to www.boxtops4education.com/ for more information.
Market Day is a monthly food program that earns funds for our school by ordering from over 180 easy-to-prepare items from their brochure. For over 30 years, Market Day has been providing convenient, healthy foods at a value for families. Market Day’s mission is raising funds for education, and since its inception, they have helped raise over $400 million for America’s organizations. Each month your child will receive a Market Day brochure from the school. Simply mark the items you would like and send it into the school, or you may order online. Due dates and pick-up dates are located on the brochure. Our school receives 10% of each order, sometimes more from specific sales. We have raised around $2000 each year with this program. Parents are needed each month to help organize and distribute the orders, which are paid for and picked up at the school. For more information, contact the school office.

Meijer Community Rewards:
This program was developed to meet the growing needs of schools and religious groups to raise funds without product or gift certificates. Supporters of this program need to apply for a Meijer Credit Card or Meijer 1 Card. You can apply for these cards at any Meijer store, or you can join online at Meijer.com/rewards. When signing up, you will need our 6-digit organizational code, which is 249036. If you already have a Meijer Credit Card, you need to make sure that you have this new code applied to your card.
When this card is scanned at the checkout register, a percentage of the purchase totals are rewarded to our school – automatically. Purchases made with a Meijer credit card earn 1%. Purchases paid with a PIN-based debit card or cash with a swiped Meijer 1 Card earn 0.5%. You can only use these options for credit toward our school. Your card will reward our school when you shop at all Meijer locations, Meijer Gas Stations, Meijer Convenience Stores, Meijer Car Washes and online Meijer purchases.

SCRIP is a program that means “substitute money” – in other words, SCRIP is gift certificates you buy from national and local retailers. SCRIP participating retailers, such as JCPenney, The Gap, Shell, Pizza Hut, Red Lobster, and many more, agree to sell you gift certificates at a discount. Member families, like yours, buy the certificates for full face value, they redeem them for full face value, and your tuition account is credited the difference as payment.
You can enroll online at www.shopwithscrip.com. Our Enrollment Code is 413ALEC915419. The program coordinator is Michell Steffani. All orders must be placed online and the checks for the gift certificates must be paid by check to St. Anne Catholic Grade School. Checks are due in the office by 12:00 p.m. every Monday each week. See Mrs. Steffani for more details.
Target REDcard Take Charge of Education:
By simply shopping with your Target Visa or Target Card, we receive 1% from the amount of each purchase you make. Target will send us a check with the percentage amount we have acquired. Make sure our school is designated (School Code: 8514) on your card so that we may receive the proper credit when you use your Target Credit Card. As of August 2010, we have 75 families participating and have earned over $18,000.
