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, and more.


There are two ways to reach the $150 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: Better Together

Ask for support through donations to our Better Together student fundraiser April 26-May 30.

Advantages:
  • 100% of what you raise through donations counts toward your $150 goal!
  • You can ask neighbors, friends, and family to support you in any donation amount.
  • Your ask is as simple as sharing what you are grateful for about La Salle and the desire for others to have the same positive experience. 
  • Your donations and participation in other community activities and competitions earns your class points to compete for the Founder's Cup.
Disadvantages:
  • You don’t have a product to give people for their donation.
