Fundraising Service Hour Requirement
Kindergarten through eighth-grade families have a fundraising service hour requirement of 20 hours per year. Those 20 hours must be spent doing fundraising activities approved by the Site Advisory Council. Please see below for areas where help is needed. In addition, please read the weekly newsletters carefully as we will frequently share updates on where help is needed. Families may also elect to “buy out” their hours.
GRACE Schools Calendar Raffle
The GRACE Schools Calendar Raffle fundraiser features $10,100 in total prize money and is aligned with our school system’s 10th-anniversary celebration. Profits support third-source funding, with each school getting credit for calendars sold. Drawings are scheduled every Wednesday and select other days throughout the calendar year. Drawings are held at the GRACE Administrative Office, 1822 Riverside Drive, Green Bay. Raffle winners will be posted on the day of the drawings on the GRACE Facebook page as well as on the GRACE website. Ticketholders are entered into every drawing, so there are multiple chances to win.
Packer Booth and Portable
This year we are planning on an entire season of Packer football to raise money for SJB. Anyone can work in the Packer Booth and the hours will count toward the SJB required service hours, but working a shift in the Booth is mandatory for all those participating in 5th-8th grade sports at any time during the year. If your child only participates in spring sports, working a Booth is still required.
We are looking for volunteers for all games and new stand leads! Stand leads balance the registers, open & close the booth and ‘manage’ the Packer Booth volunteers from SJB on game day. Please reach out if you would like to pursue this role.

Looking for an easy way to earn money towards your tuition? Use our Scrip program to buy gift cards toward things you already purchase every day (such as gas, groceries, restaurant meals, gifts, etc.) and a portion of your purchases will come back to St. John the Baptist School for valuable fundraising. 50% of your Scrip profit will be deducted from your child(ren)’s tuition. We have families who earn hundreds of dollars off their tuition every year! For information about how to shop with Scrip, please click here.

School Family Responsibilities
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 with children in grades 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.
- The Site Advisory Council determines whether an event is eligible to count toward 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 ($40 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 per hour. This fee must be paid no later than June 30.
- During an eligible Fundraising Service Hour event, Fundraising Chairpersons 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.
The application of this policy is under the discretion of the school administrator.
