How it works: You purchase face value gift certificates for local businesses and we receive a small percentage back (from those companies) as profit. The program returns a percentage toward school families' tuition as well.
Benefit: Upwards of $15,000 per year toward school technology resources and tuition credit back to participating families.
2. Amazon SMILE: Register your new or existing Amazon account at https://smile.amazon.com/.
How it works: Amazon contributes a percentage of profits from your purchases to St. Jude Church. You can add your charity by searching the 46614 ZIP code and then looking for St. Jude Church. Be sure to initiate all purchases from smile.amazon.com (purchasing from www.amazon.com will not count toward the charity). Qualifying orders will be marked with the "Amazon Smile" logo in your order history. BETTER YET, you can STILL USE SCRIP GIFT CARDS TO PAY FOR YOUR AMAZON SMILE PURCHASE, in effect getting twice the benefit!
Benefit: St. Jude Church receives a quarterly deposit based on earned Amazon Smile credits. St. Jude Church subsidizes a significant portion of the school's funding, so any benefit to the church is a benefit to our school and our students.
