Fundraising Service Hour Requirement
Kindergarten through eighth-grade families will have a fundraising service hour requirement of 20 hours. These 20 hours must be spent doing fundraising activities approved by Site Advisory Council. Fundraising service hours can be completed by parents and/or grandparents. All approved activities and sign up forms are available on the school website. Each family’s fundraising service hours are valued at $40 per hour for a total of $800. Any unfulfilled hours will be charged to the family. Families may also elect to “buy out” their hours using this form.
The annual auction is a spring event and is the largest fundraiser in terms of volunteers and also revenue for the school. The planning begins in October and runs until the event night, usually March or April. The auction committee consists of several chairperson positions that lead planning or organizing volunteers, team support positions and one time helpers. Volunteer opportunities range in terms of commitment hours, length of project, timing of project or service and where service occurs. Volunteer needs range from planning, donations, data entry, pick-up runners, marketing, class projects, set up and decorations and take down. There are always ways to help and get involved in this great event and your help is needed!

PACKER BOOTH & PORTABLE
All families of SJB student-athletes are required to work one Packer Booth each year. It is also a great opportunity to get up to half of your required family volunteer hours in one day and you don’t have to have student-athletes to work in the booth. Our school receives a lot of support by our participation in the Packer Booth and we really appreciate your help and enthusiasm.
Two volunteers are needed to sell SCRIP before and after each weekend mass. You can sign up to work the mass of your choice. Each volunteer will earn 1 service hour per Mass.

Every year the 7th graders have an opportunity to leave their legacy with the school by designing the Sprit T-shirts for the following year. Students can purchase these t-shirts and wear them on Fridays instead of their school uniforms. Volunteers are needed to help organize the design contest, promote and accept orders for the t-shirts, and distribute orders. Pre-orders are taken at the end of the school year (for the following school year). T-Shirts are available for sale at the Annual Open House in August.

SCHOOL FAMILY RESPONSIBILITIES & EXPECTATIONS
Every year, GRACE establishes a fundraising requirement for our school. Meeting this fundraising requirement allows us to maintain competitive tuition rates. If this requirement is not met, the deficit will be billed to school families. If this requirement is exceeded, the surplus will be dedicated to enhancing the school environment.
In order to reach this goal, each family (K-8) is required to meet the “Fundraising Service Hour Requirement” which is to complete a minimum of 20 Fundraising Service Hours per year. These fundraising activities support the direct needs of the students and the school, either saving or making the school money. Fundraising hours follow the current school calendar and do not carry over from year to year.
- Each family’s fundraising service hours are valued at $800.00 ($40.00 per hour). Each family can elect to buy out any or all of their 20-hour Fundraising Service Hour commitment by filling out the “Fundraising Service Hour Buy Out” form (available here).
- Near the end of each school year, unfulfilled service hours will be billed to school families at the rate of $40.00 per hour. This fee must be paid no later than May 31st.
- During an eligible Fundraising Service Hour event, Fundraising Chair Persons are required to review and approve all volunteers’ hours. All volunteers are responsible for signing in and out of their event and verifying the accuracy of the hours.
If you have questions regarding fundraising, please click here (www.sjbhschool.org). Follow this link (sign up tool link) to view and sign up for fundraising activities. Only the events listed on this link are considered eligible opportunities to earn Fundraising Service Hours.
The application of this policy is under the discretion of the school administrator.
