There are many ways to support St. Apollinaris School and assure we deliver on our mission to provide a Christ centered, faith-filled educational experience.
The MERCY organization is obligated to generate $100,000 in general revenue toward the operating budget of the school. Any amount above this obligation is designated to specific categories: 1) endowment, 2) principal’s scholarship, 3) capital improvements, 4) MERCY tuition assistance, and 5) M.A.C. discretionary account. MERCY events include the Walk-a-Thon, Golf Tournament, Crab Feed and Gala.
All families are asked to meet a $400 profit obligation using the Scrip program where participating retailers rebate a certain percentage of sales back to St. Apollinaris Catholic School. The program is available by purchasing paper “scrip” in our office or by using a variety of on-line scrip options. Our profits from this program are used in our general revenue toward the operating budget of the school. See our Scrip Center for more information and forms.
Partnership in Education
The Partnership in Education Fund is an opportunity for parents to make a tax-deductible cash donation to the school for the difference between the cost of education and tuition charged. Monies raised will go towads covering school operating expenses.
Blessed are the Children
Blessed are the Children is a quarterly parish campaign for the support of our school and the religious education program. The majority of these funds going to St. Apollinaris School will be earmarked as scholarship money to make Catholic education more available in our community.
We are a qualified non-profit entity, and are happy to accept monetary donations to assist specific programs.
