- SCRIP: St. Joseph parishioners can purchase
certificates from the SCRIP program to use at various companies and
restaurants in Lincoln that return a percentage to St. Joseph Parish.
SCRIP can be purchased after all weekend Masses, in the school office
during school hours, or through "backpack SCRIP". This money has been
used in recent years to provide money to teachers to purchase classroom
enhancements, to purchase library books, to provide funding for
school-wide parties and to help with part of the purchase of the school
- School Family Association (SFA) Fundraiser: The
School Family Association generally has a fundraiser in the fall.
- Book Fair: An annual book fair is usually held to
benefit the library. The format of the book fair will depend on
availability. When possible, books from a local bookstore are displayed
in the library for a week-long book fair. Receiving profits from all
sales to school families at a local bookstore on a designated day is
another possible option. Profits from the sale are used to purchase new
Label / Box Top Programs
- General Mills Box Tops: Clip box top logos from
cereals, fruit snacks, etc., put your child’s name on the back, and turn
them into school. A drawing is held on the last Friday of each school
month, with the winner receiving a $10 SCRIP certificate of his/her
choice. Once a year the school mails the box tops to General Mills and
receives a check.
- HyVee: This program, which helps area schools raise
money, usually runs January through April. All Lincoln area HyVee Stores
participate. During the designated time period, send your GOLD receipts
to school. HyVee donates $1 for every $100 spent at HyVee during this
period, to a maximum of $1000.
