Fundraising efforts form the centerpiece of the Crusader Club and Parents Association's support to St. John's. Events like the auction, golf tournament and Book Fair raise funds to support a variety of school programs and initiatives. To date, these efforts have helped fund SMART Boards, library equipment and books, capital projects, water fountains, playground equipment, and much, much more. In addition to the major fundraising events, there are daily opportunities for parents to support the school.

Grocery Store Community Cards
Local grocery stores provide reward cards that can be linked to St. John's. These stores will donate at least 1% of your eligible purchases to the school. Key cards, which include these guidelines, may be distributed upon request to the PA fundraising coordinator.
Shoppers must sign up annually in September with number QG684.
Please ask the cashier to link your Tom Thumb Reward Card to account #1240. A percentage of every purchase will be donated to St. John's Dorothy Patterson Scholarship Fund. Tom Thumb will allow shoppers to choose up to three charities to support.
