St. Francis/Holy Ghost School relies on the support of parishioners, parents, and alumni to help bridge the gap between tuition income and the total operating budget of the school. You can support the school by volunteering your time, contributing your resources, and participating in our many fundraising activities.
St. Francis/Holy Ghost School considers its’ volunteers as very special resources. Parents, grandparents, and others are encouraged to help in classroom, programs, and extracurricular activities. Please call the office if you have time or skills you can donate to make our school a better place for students to learn and grow. For the safety of our children all volunteers must sign the form consenting to a background check and participate in the “Protecting God’s Children” program. Volunteers must also read and sign a verification form on the Social Media policy from the Diocese of Springfield. All volunteers will be asked to sign in on arrival and wear proper identification provided by the office. Volunteers will be asked to sign a waiver.
Please consider making a regular contribution to St. Francis/Holy Ghost School by using your school envelope. This donation will help the parishes meet their school subsidy each month.
Making a legacy gift to support St. Francis/Holy Ghost School is an incredibly personal statement that reinforces what the school has meant to an individual. Please remember our school in your estate planning.
The SCRIP program is the C.B.C.’s gift card fundraising program. It is another way to help defray the cost of tuition. The SCRIP program does not cost any additional money to the purchaser. It is the only fundraiser that gives families dollar for dollar returns.
