This year our students will be selling cookie dough and Yankee Candles during the months of September and October.
Through Yankee Candle Fundraising St. Francis students will offer supporters a variety of items to purchase. Prices range from $6.00 to $28.00 which is comparable to retail store sales and our group earns 40% profit.
As part of our fundraising efforts for the Annual 8th Grade East Coast Study Trip, a variety of food vendors offer fun lunch options for only $5.00 each Wednesday. Parent volunteers collect and tally orders at the start of each week, arrange for pick-up or delivery of meals, and handle distribution from the kitchen during lunch period.
Our Annual Mother-Son and Father-Daughter Dances offer an evening of dancing, games, and fun for our students and their families. Tickets are available for purchase prior to the event. All monies raised benefit the Father Seamus Glynn Tuition Assistance Fund.
Students and their families enjoy a picnic style lunch together as the In-N-Out Burger truck visits campus to deliver meals that have been pre-ordered through the St. Francis Academic Decathlon Team. Proceeds are used to support the team as they prepare for the annual Academic Decathlon.
Throughout the school year students are offered the opportunity to make a one dollar donation towards a worthy cause in exchange for the chance to wear jeans to school for a day. Funds are sent to a pre-determined charitable organization or applied to a specific program or project at St. Francis of Assisi.

In an effort to support the critical mission of our schools to educate and form young Catholics - The Orange County Catholic newspaper is launching a winter fundraising program, February 19 - April 30th. This program will enable individual students or classes to raise needed funds for their Catholic school and enable highly engaged schools to generate significant in-kind advertising support on Catholic radio, in the OC Catholic newspaper, and on the OC Catholic website and mobile application network. The monies generated will support the educational ministry of our school.
