In order to keep tuition affordable and yet enable us to provide many extras, all private schools find it necessary to raise additional funds. Foothills Christian Middle School has two major fundraisers a year. Usually a Christmas Catalog Sale in the Fall and a Service Project or Raffle in the Spring. Our requirement is that families participate in one or both, depending on whether the minimum $100 per student is met for the school in either fundraiser. Parents have the choice to “opt out” by paying up front the $100 per student, per year, fundraising substitution fee.
Every dollar that comes into the school is put directly towards providing the best Christian education we can to our youth in a most cost-effective way. Please show your support of providing a Christian learning environment by partnering with us financially. We have provided for your convenience a secure way to do this through PayPal.
New this year! We are excited to be partnering with a fun, free, and truly easy fundraiser called Shoparoo! Schools nationwide are already earning hundreds and even thousands every year through Shoparoo and it’s a great opportunity for us to really make a difference this year!
Shoparoo is school fundraising made easy: the free app turns pictures of your everyday shopping receipts into cash donations and sweepstakes entries for our school! Yep, it’s that simple. No more cutting labels, selling door to door, or time-consuming coordinating. All you have to do is shop as you normally do, snap pictures of your receipts with the app, and voila Just shop, snap, earn!
3. You can even select a grade to support and have fun with grade competitions!
Whichever family earns the most for our school will receive a $50 gift card of your choice at the end of the year!
A convenient, year-round FUNDRAISER – with very little effort on your part.
Purchasing “scrip,” is basically buying negotiable gift certificates (in most cases gift cards) that are issued by local and national retailers. (For example: Vons, Albertsons, Arco, Mobile, Starbucks, Home Depot, Barnes & Noble, etc.) These merchants want to support nonprofit organizations, and in return ask you to support them by shopping with scrip at their stores. Every purchase earns revenue for the school and the person ordering them.
A complete retailer list is available online at glscrip.com, and order forms with a reduced retailer list are sent home from time to time and always available in the office. Orders can be placed each week, but must be turned in to FCMS by Thursday at noon, or you may purchase scrip “online” @ shopwithscrip.com. By signing up online you can earn 30% of the profit toward your last tuition bill. ONLY “ONLINE” orders qualify for the 30% profit. When registering and ordering online, make sure to use our enrollment code: E485E1418843
