Fundraising

Apples for the Students

Serra Catholic High School participates in Giant Eagle's Apples for the Students program throughout the school year. The program requires you to register your Advantage Card so that your purchases benefit Serra specifically. The school received two new RCA DVD/VCR combination players by participating last year, and your continued support in providing our program with educational materials and equipment is appreciated.

To register your Advantage Card online, please follow these steps:

  1. Go to the Giant Eagle website: Apples for Students
  2. Create your login name and password
  3. Then enter Serra's School ID # 095900
  4. Shop with your Giant Eagle Advantage Card and your points will go to our school!
  5. Or simply call 1-800-634-1267 to register

The program started in September and ends in March. It is an easy way to have your purchases at Giant Eagle help benefit our school. If you need any help, please call the main office at 412-751-2020.


Campbell's Labels for Education

Serra Catholic is a participant in the Campbell's Labels for Education Program again this year. The program is designed to help our school receive great educational materials. These materials will be helpful in both the library and classrooms.

SCRIP

Did you know you can earn tuition credit?

Serra Catholic has a fundraising program called "SCRIPS" which are gift certificates from national and local retailers. It's the fundraising program that works while you shop. Some examples of them are: JC Penney, Macy's, Kohl's, Giant Eagle, Sunoco, Rite Aid, Pizza Hut, Subway, Arby's, Wendy's, Target, Olive Garden, Walmart, Home Depot, Lowe's and many more.

By participating in this program you benefit directly and it doesn't involve any selling! You simply put your regular household dollars to work for you. Each and every time you buy groceries, go out to eat, put gas in the car, make home improvement purchases or go on vacation you can be earning money which can be applied as a tuition credit without having to spend one additional penny. Think of it----when you spend your regular shopping dollars at the many stores participating in the SCRIP program, you can be lowering your tuition at the same time.

Get your family members, relatives and friends to help out too! That's more money that you can save.

How does it work?

SCRIPS sells Serra the certificates at a discounted price. You buy the certificates at full face value, redeem them at full face value and 80% of the profit will be credited to your tuition balance with only 20% going to Serra to cover shipping and postage fees. For example, Giant Eagle is 5% profit so for every $100 Giant Eagle gift card you purchase you earn a $4.00 tuition credit.
