St. Peter Martyr School is funded primarily through tuition. No family is charged the full rate of what it actually costs to educate a child. In order to maintain our current programs, it is necessary to fundraise to offset the financial responsibilities not covered through tuition. Money raised through fundraisers becomes part of the school’s operating budget. St. Peter Martyr School participates in several fundraisers with every child and family benefiting from the school fundraisers. Therefore, parent and student support is expected. These events also make our community stronger by working together towards the same goal.

The Fundraising Fee set for each family is $500. It can be paid in cash or earned by participating in specific events that we credit towards this fee. Not all fundraising events are credited towards your fee. It is also important to note that not all credit is dollar for dollar for what you raise. When an event begins, the weekly newsletter will state what credit will be given towards your fundraising fee. Any contributions donated after this amount is greatly appreciated and wonderful for our school. Families also have the option of paying the. $500 in lieu of participating in the individual fundraisers. This will be charged to your FACTS accounts in August if you have indicated as such on your Fundraising and Parent Volunteer form sent out at the beginning of the year.
