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.

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.

From the SJB Handbook:

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. 

  • Site Advisory Council determines whether or not an event is eligible to count towards the “Fundraising Service Hour Requirement.” Events will include fundraisers, service that saves the school money, or approved family events.
  • 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 June 30th.
  • 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 (http://www.sjbhschool.org/requiredservice-hours/). 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.
