Fundraising is a vital part of St. Joseph School. The funds received are strictly used for the sole benefit of the school.
Our fundraising efforts are used for the intent and purpose of raising money necessary to purchase materials and equipment, helping fund capital improvements, supporting programs and events for our students, and assisting in covering a portion of the operating expenses of St. Joseph School. Parents involvement via their time and services are not only necessary to keep the school operating, but this volunteerism is key to maintaining the success and values of St. Joseph School.
Our annual golf outing honors the memory of Peter Cavalero, a 2004 beloved graduate of St. Joseph School. It is an extraordinary event for the school and raises funds through individual donations and corporate sponsorships. The day holds the opportunity for different packages from group to individual golfers, hole and facility sponsorship and finishing up with cocktails and dinner. The day also includes a Ladie Birdie Luncheon. The final conclusion to the day is a live auction offering items from golf at top clubs to sporting events to dinners at different exclusive venues.
The Grocery Magic Gift Card program is a virtually “free” fundraiser. The five participating grocery stores: Shop Rite, King’s, A&P, ACME, Weis, and Stop&Shop have contracted with St. Joseph’s to give back $5 for every $100 spent. Participation requires a minimum check for $100 and the family receives a $100 gift card to the requested grocery store. (Credit cards are accepted for orders over $300.) There is no “out-of-pocket” cost to the families: $100 check = $100 gift card. Mandatory participation is required for all St. Joe’s families, with a $3,000 minimum for the school year (Sept.-June). Everyone needs groceries, so it is a win-win for the participants and the school. Please look for the Grocery Magic forms in your Tuesday News.
Spring School Auction Event
The spring auction is a special night to remember. This year’s auction will take place on March 21, 2015 at Birchwood Manor in Parsippany. The evening includes both a silent and live auction, raffles, and designated giving opportunities for specific school needs. Auction items vary from those donated by local businesses, corporations, and individuals from the school, parish, and surrounding communities. The event offers items from jewelry and electronics to dinners, golf outings and weekend getaways, local services and even vacations. One always notable auction item is a personalized tribute from each grade. It serves to be a very festive and enjoyable opportunity to socialize while also contributing and supporting St. Joseph School. All of the proceeds go to benefit St. Joseph School.
