Did you know there are a number of ways to give to St. Francis Xavier School AT NO COST TO YOU? Please review the descriptions below to learn more about several turn-key programs that direct critical funding where it’s most needed. Questions or ideas for additional no-cost partnerships may be directed to email@example.com. Thank you!
AmazonSmile is a website operated by Amazon that lets customers enjoy the same wide selection of products, prices, and shopping features as on Amazon.com. The difference is that when customers shop on AmazonSmile (at smile.amazon.com), the AmazonSmile Foundation will donate 0.5% of the price of eligible purchases to the charitable organizations selected by customers. St. Francis Xavier is currently being processed as a recognized charitable organization through Guidestar. Once we have been approved, a Newsblast will be circulated sharing information regarding how to apply your future purchases to earn a give-back to SFX.
SFX School participates in the Office Depot 5% Back to Schools Program. Simply shop online at officedepot.com or visit an Office Depot store (like the one at 2722 Green Bay Road in Evanston) and provide our St. Francis Xavier School Code (70035215). SFX will receive 5% back on all eligible products purchased by you in the form of a gift card to use toward supplies for our school.
When making a school uniform purchase through Lands’ End, please use our SFX School Code, #900059056. Up to 3% of your purchase will come back to St. Francis Xavier School through the Preferred School Program. This give-back applies to Irish Dance uniforms, khaki pants and shorts, non-logo polos, socks and more. To review eligible items, please refer to our Lands’ End Uniform Guide here.
The Scrip Fundraising Program provides gift cards from popular retailers at no additional cost to our school or to SFX families. Each time you purchase a scrip card, a rebate is applied to your family’s tuition balance and an additional rebate is designated for our school. Retailers who participate in this program include Jewel, Whole Foods, BP, Shell, Starbucks, Panera, The Gap, Walgreens, CVS, amazon.com and many others. Families may reserve a standing monthly order of cards, or parents may prefer to stop in the office to buy from the stock on-hand at school. Visit our Scrip Page to learn more about this valuable program.
Box Tops for Education
St. Francis Xavier collects Box Tops for Education! Do you purchase items that display this logo? If so, please clip and send your box tops into the school office. School parents are asked to share these on “box top dress down days” as well. SFX receives $0.10 for every box top collected, and uses these funds to purchase equipment and to support resources for our students. There is no deadline for this program so please send your box tops to us at 808 Linden Avenue in Wilmette, IL 60091 at any time throughout the year.
Morning Glory Flower Shop
Did you know that Morning Glory Flowers in Wilmette gives 5% back on eligible purchases made by SFX parishioners to our school? Simply mention that you are from SFX and Morning Glory will include a percentage of your purchase in this annual give-back. Last year’s donation totaled over $700. Be sure to mention SFX the next time you purchase flowers at Morning Glory.
