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 security system.
School Family Association (SFA) Fundraiser:
The School Family Association generally has a fundraiser in the fall.
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 books.
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.
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.
