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.

All net proceeds from the student fundraiser will be split evenly between need-based financial assistance and funding community-building efforts such as class retreats, Green Dot training, St. La Salle Day festivities, clubs, and more.


There are two ways to reach the $150 goal:
 
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.
  • The timing is perfect - many people want to buy wreaths, swags, or garland for the holidays.
  • 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 19-22 and make sure to get the items to your donors.
  • Since we have to buy these from a supplier, only 45% of your total sales counts toward your $150 goal. (45% is an increase from 40% last year)
Option #2: Better Together

Ask for support through donations to our Better Together student fundraiser in February. More information will be provided in Falcon Formation classes during second semester. Additional information can be found on the Better Together page

Advantages:
  • 100% of what you raise through donations counts toward your $150 goal
  • Neighbors, friends, and family can support you with any amount
  • You can use an Everyday Hero page to collect donations online and email your link to supporters
Disadvantages:
  • You don’t have a product to give people for their donation.
The best option is to utilize both methods to maximize the opportunity to earn proceeds from wreath sales and reduce the amount of donations that will be needed later!
