Student Fundraiser

La Salle’s student fundraiser requires each student to meet or exceed their goal of raising $150 between now and the end of the school year.

The best part: we can now say that 100% of your $150 goal goes toward financial aid for La Salle students and families! With over 56% of our total student body receiving financial aid in order to be here, this is a great goal and much needed support!

There are now two exciting ways to reach this goal, each with advantages based on opportunity and what type of fundraising activity students prefer.
 
Sell wreaths, swags and garland to family, friends, and neighbors.
 
Advantages:
  • Having a product to sell as a fundraiser can be easier so donors get something in return.
  • Many people buy wreaths, swags or garland around Christmas, so the timing of the sale fits a need.
  • You can sell to neighbors, ask your parents to sell to co-workers, and you can even ship them via UPS.
  • The wreaths, swags, and garland are very high quality and our community has loved them for years.
Disadvantages:
  • You have to pick up your orders between November 19-29 and make sure to get the items to your donors.
  • Since we have to buy these from a supplier, only 40% of your total sales counts toward your $150 goal.
Option #2: Walkathon

Ask for support through donations for your walk at our Walkathon in May

Advantages:
  • 100% of what you raise through these donations counts toward your $150 goal!
  • Many people understand the concept of walkathons so they know what you’re asking.
  • You can ask neighbors, friends, and family to support you in any donation amount.
  • You ask for the pledges upfront, so you don’t need to go back and collect donations.
  • La Salle’s community has been supporting the Walkathon for several years, so this is not new.
Disadvantages:
  • You don’t have a product to give people for their donation.
Sell some wreaths, swags and garland and get 40% of those sales toward your $150 goal. Then, since you know exactly how much is left, if any, you can go out and raise the balance through Walkathon pledges!
