Help earn CASH for our school through your regular spending habits!
Our Lady of Guadalupe School is committed to providing an excellent Catholic education while keeping tuition affordable. Tuition/fees comprise approximately 80% of the school budget. The gap between revenue from tuition/fees and the actual cost of educating our students is bridged through fundraising and subsidy from OLG parish. In addition to cash donations, here are some easy ways YOU CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE and direct a percentage of your regular spending to go toward our school.

It has a funny name, but scrip fundraising can be a powerful tool and so easy to use! Gift card fundraising, also known as scrip fundraising, has been the #1 fundraiser for nonprofit organizations across the U.S. for more than 25 years. Why? Because you can earn money for our school simply by buying gift cards to use for everyday (and everyday) purchases, instead of cash or credit cards.
The concept is simple: The school purchases gift cards, or scrip, from popular retailers at a discount. You then buy the gift cards from the school at face value. The difference in price is kept by the school. You spend the scrip at the retailer, where it’s worth the full face value; you haven’t spent an extra dime to help the school, nor have you had to change stores. You can find out more HERE.
BUY, SCAN, EARN. You can earn cash for our school just by purchasing participating brands and scanning your receipt. No more clipping! Now the Box Tops program is fully digital. If you see this label, use the new Box Tops app to scan your receipt. The app will find participating products purchased at any store and instantly add cash to your school’s earnings online.
