Gift Card Fundraiser Program

St. John School "Gift Card Fundraiser" is one of the four main fundraisers of our school and is a great way to earn money for our children’s school programs by purchasing gift cards to stores you already shop at. These cards can be used at stores, restaurants, and online. The program works by purchasing gift cards through the school and the company of the card donates a percentage the school. For example, purchase a $100 Shop Rite gift card and Shop Rite will donate 10% to the school.
