RaiseRight (formerly known as SCRIP) Purchases: Count Toward the Family Fundraising Obligation (FFO)
All school families are responsible for what we call the Family Fundraising Obligation (or FFO) at All Saints.
- The FFO for families with Kindergarten through Grade 8 students is $500 per family.
- The FFO for families with preschool only students is $250 per family.
Families have until April 30, 2024 to fundraise to meet their 2023-2024 FFO. All Saints offers a number of different fundraising opportunities throughout the school year for you to complete this obligation.
There is one opportunity that is available to ALL school families all year long, and that is our RaiseRight program. RaiseRight is a convenient and powerful fundraising program which earns money for the school, helps school families satisfy their Family Fundraising Obligation (FFO), and can even generate future year's tuition credit through the purchase of gift cards to establishments where the buyer regularly shops, dines, purchases their morning coffee, or travels. For every gift card purchased, a percentage goes towards your Family Fundraising Obligation (FFO). Families pay the face value of the gift card, and the percentage offered by the retailer will go toward your FFO.
Our RaiseRight team would like you to know more about this FFO earning opportunity. It is easy to get started. If you are not already taking advantage of this offering - this is the time to get going!
Begin earning toward your FFO for the 2023-2024 school year now - it’s easier than you think! Raise Right has over 580 vendors available to purchase gift cards from and use at your convenience.
9/27/2023 Update: The RaiseRight “Ship to School” option is now open!!

The RaiseRight website will have the “Ship to School” option available until Sunday, October 15th at 4:00pm. Remember, it is only during this period that your physical gift cards can be sent to All Saints, free of charge, and distributed to you.
If you prefer your gift cards to be sent home with your student, a 2023-2024 school year waiver must be signed and turned in to the school office or emailed to RaiseRight@ascacademy.org by Monday, October 16th. Click here to download and print the RaiseRight Waiver form for 2023-2024. All orders exceeding $250 MUST be picked up by a parent. Please note: waivers are only valid for the current school year and a new one must be filled out each school year.

What You Need to Know About RaiseRight
Here are a few key points to clarify before you get started:
1. Contact RaiseRight@ascacademy.org and ask for the activation code needed to start your online RaiseRight account
2. Go to the website raiseright.com and set up your account. It costs nothing to join and only takes a few minutes. You can even link other relatives and friends to your account- you’ll earn FFO much faster if other people are buying gift cards too.
3. Start shopping and earning! By purchasing items with these gift cards rather than your credit card, you’ll see how easy it is to earn your FFO. Stop writing a check to ASCA for your unearned FFO! Raise Right is a free service that has the benefit of giving a percentage back to our school through the listed vendors. All you have to do is purchase the gift cards through RaiseRight, and the FFO will earn itself.
Now that you have your account all set up and are ready to earn some FFO, you may have some questions as to how much FFO you will earn or what options to purchase cards are available.
Let’s clarify these questions:
1. Each vendor states how much they are willing to give to ASCA with your purchase. For example, Land’s End states “Earn 15%” below its name. This means you will earn 15% of your purchase of gift cards from Land’s End toward your FFO. If you purchase a $100 gift card, you will earn $15 toward your FFO. Each vendor is different in their reimbursements but they will all be credited toward your FFO.
2. Each vendor has different ways to purchase their gift cards. Here is what the different options mean:
a. Physical- an actual gift card like you would purchase in-store. If you miss a “Ship To School” window you can still order these gift cards and choose to have them mailed directly to you.
b. eGift- an electronic gift card that will normally load within minutes of purchase to your Scrip/Raise Right wallet. From here you can print, copy online codes, and view balances.
Download the RaiseRight app to your phone and always have your eGift cards ready to use.
c. Reload- the ability to add more funds to already purchased physical gift cards. Once you have a physical gift card you can register this card to your account and keep adding funds as needed. No need to keep buying new cards every time your funds run out- reload!
Here are some easy ways to earn your FFO from places you probably visit frequently. Remember, even small rebates add up over time! While grocery stores don’t offer huge rebates, keep reloading your cards and you will start to see your FFO add up as well. The key is to be consistent and frequent in your purchases and reloads.
Sign up for RaiseRight emails and be notified of vendor “bonus” days. This is when select vendors increase their rebates for a given amount of time. This is the best time to reload your most used cards or plan ahead and purchase gift cards for upcoming events like graduations, weddings, birthday parties, or holiday meals.
Once you get used to purchasing and using your Raise Right gift cards you will be amazed how easy it is to meet your yearly FFO requirement without really trying! There is nothing more satisfying than buying gift cards to buy school uniforms, complete home renovations, book travel plans, or enjoy a quick meal AND earn FFO while doing it!
Here are just a few categories and vendors to help get you started:
a. hotels- AirBNB, Hilton, Hampton Inn, Marriott, Best Western, Holiday Inn, Courtyard Marriott, Embassy Suites, Sheraton, hotels.com
b. airlines- Southwest, Delta, American
c. cruiselines- Carnival, Royal Caribbean, Holland American, Princess
a. Albertson’s/Jewel, Mariano’s, Meijer, Whole Foods, Casey’s, Sam’s Club, Walmart, Target
a. projects- Lowe’s, Home Depot, Menards, Ace
b. decor- Pottery Barn, Pottery Barn Kids, Crate and Barrel, The Container Store, William Sonoma, Home Goods
4. Gift Cards
a. American Express and Visa (no activation fees), Shutterfly, Instacart, Amazon, eBay
a. Grubhub, Uber Eats, Lettuce Entertain You, Morton’s Steakhouse, Starbucks, Dunkin’ Donuts, Chipotle, Red Robin, Panera, Noodles and Company, Subway, Panda Express, Chili’s, Dairy Queen, Coldstone, Baskin Robbins, Burger King, McDonald’s
a. Main Event, Top Golf, Chuck E. Cheese, Dave and Busters, AMC, Fandango, Regal Cinemas, Cinemark
a. Land’s End, Gap, Old Navy, Athleta, Nike, DSW, Foot Locker, Adidas, Carter’s, Children’s Place, Aerie, Aeropostale, White House Black Market, Eddie Bauer, Nordstrom
Please reach out to the Scrip team at RaiseRight@ascacademy.org with any questions. They are here to answer your questions and help you earn that FFO! SCRIP earnings from now through February 29, 2024 will count toward the 2023-2024 school year FFO - so don't delay, start earning TODAY!
All Saints Fun Run 2023 a Huge Success

Tax Credit Scholarship Campaign Update
Thank you to everyone who expressed their support for this program. It is with deep sadness that we share that the Invest in Kids Act Tax Credit Scholarship Program was allowed to sunset, and has not been extended beyond the upcoming school year.
This is most certainly not the outcome we all hoped and worked so hard for; however, we look forward to the possibility of this program being addressed in the Fall legislative veto session. Keep praying and contact your Illinois Senator and State Representative to voice your support for this program.

2022-2023 All Saints Annual Appeal
A treasured and important trait of the greater All Saints school community has always been its generosity and philanthropy. At ASCA, we tirelessly strive to develop students who have kind, compassionate and others-centered hearts and minds. Students who will truly make a difference in today's world.
We ask our parents, faculty, grandparents, alumni and alumni parents, friends of ASCA and many benefactors past and present to join together to support the mission of All Saints Catholic Academy in this year's All Saints Annual Appeal. Help us to bridge the gap between our tuition and the true cost to educate, as we endeavor to keep the cost of our excellent education grounded in faith within reach for all parents who desire that for their precious child(ren).
To find out more about this year's appeal and to donate, please click the button below. We thank you for your support, for the great Amen, and we look forward to seeing your name on our Donor Wall. May our loving and gracious God greatly bless you during this beautiful season.
All Saints Golf Classic

Thank you to John Corradetti, Wayne Klein and all of the volunteers for planning and executing such a wonderful event.
It was a tremendous day of 'fun' and 'fund'raising in support of our amazing school, All Saints Catholic Academy. Looking forward to our 3rd annual Golf Classic in 2024!

All Saints Annual Appeal 2022-2023
The Annual Appeal provides essential support to All Saints' annual budget and to the educational and spiritual journey of each All Saints student. Every dollar raised is used to enrich the lives of our students at ASCA so that they may be the future Catholic leaders that our world so greatly needs.
We need your help to meet this year's Annual Appeal goal of $30,000 as tuition alone does not cover the full cost of educating the saints at All Saints. Your contribution to the appeal ensures the continued excellence of All Saints and helps us to fund various school needs that include academic enhancements, faculty development, classroom technology, supplies and equipment, and operating expenses. Each contribution to the Annual Appeal, no matter how great or small, is affirmation of your belief in our mission, and for that we sincerely thank you.
To contribute and be featured on our Donor Wall, click here.
When you visit classrooms at All Saints, you’ll see dedicated teachers and engaged learners. Class sizes remain small so students can receive the individual attention and care that they need to be successful. Students have the opportunity to work with state-of-the-art technology to collaboratively problem solve and engage in hands-on learning activities. Students are blessed with outstanding facilities and a safe environment where they can grow and thrive.
Each day, at the center of all we do, is our Catholic faith. We join together in daily prayer, celebrate weekly mass as a school community, and continue to lift each other up in our journey toward Sainthood.
While our world continues to be a place of uncertainty for many, families know they can count on All Saints to be a place where their child will receive an excellent traditional education grounded in our Catholic faith, and each student will be safe, known and loved. It is our fervent hope and prayer that all who walk through our doors feel the presence of Christ - in the classrooms, in the hallways, on the playground, and in the hearts of our students, faculty and administration. Your support will help us continue to keep tuition affordable for those who desire an All Saints education.
Our successes would not be possible without you - our parents, grandparents, faculty, alumni and alumni parents, and friends. Please prayerfully consider making a gift to this year’s Annual Appeal.
We humbly ask that you continue to keep our entire school community in your prayers, and know that you and your loved ones are in ours. Thank you for all your past and future gifts that allow our students to grow in their faith as we walk together on our journey toward sainthood. All Saints Catholic Academy remains most grateful.
How Your Annual Fund Appeal Contribution Can Make a Difference
The Annual Fund Appeal helps us to make and keep Catholic education affordable to all families in our community. The tuition that you pay each month is only one piece of what it takes to ensure that our students are receiving the excellent education in a safe environment that they need. Our surrounding public school districts are spending considerably more dollars per pupil than our tuition cost, with NCUSD203 spending 167% more per pupil, and IPSD204 spending 117% more per pupil. Your contribution to the appeal ensures the continued excellence of All Saints and helps us to fund various school needs, including academic enhancements, faculty development, classroom technology, supplies and equipment, and operating expenses. Every dollar raised is used to enrich the lives of our students in their pursuit of academic and spiritual development, so that they may be the future Catholic leaders that our world so greatly needs.
Each contribution to the Annual Fund Appeal, no matter how great or small, is affirmation of your belief in our mission. For that, we thank you!

ASCA Day of Giving - Tuesday, November 1, 2022
What a joyfilled day of celebration. We began this day in prayer and gratitude for our many blessings, including our students, school families, faculty, alumni and many friends and benefactors. This is truly a day to rejoice and be thankful
. We are humbled by your support of All Saints Catholic Academy - past, present and future.
A school like All Saints, where academic excellence is grounded in faith, is needed now more than ever. ASCA is a place where a loving and gracious God is the center of our lives and where we strive to know Him, to love Him, and to serve Him. It is a place where we are forming young men and women of good character, who possess kind, compassionate and others-centered hearts. At All Saints, we send forth confident children with knowledge, self-confidence, and a moral compass to become our future leaders.
On this Feast Day, please consider and reflect on what All Saints has meant to your student, your family, and your community. Help us to reach our goal of $10,000. Your gift at the highest level that you are able to give will ensure that our current and future Saints at All Saints will continue benefit. Your generosity is greatly appreciated.
This fundraiser is active through Wednesday, November 2, and counts toward your FFO. If you did not have an opportunity to taste the samples that were being distributed on a chilly rainy day a few weeks ago, trust us - they are delicious!!!!
There are 6 varieties (Cinnamon Sugar, Banana Nut, Cranberry Orange, Blueberry Lemon, Pumpkin, and Triple Chocolate). Loaves cost $12.50 each, and you not only get a yummy treat, but earn $5 per loaf toward your FFO. There is also a sampler of 6 individually wrapped 4 oz mini loaves for $22.50 where you can earn $9 per sampler toward your FFO.
Think holiday and hostess gifts, think ‘treat yourself to something tasty’, think 'end of the Thanksgiving or Christmas meal'. The loaves have a shelf life of approximately 2 weeks, and freeze beautifully, so store a few away for a rainy or snowy day.
ASCA is very pleased to be able to offer this brand new FFO fundraiser, and to partner with the great folks at Treasure Breads, a locally owned company (https://www.treasurebreadsinc.com/). For where your treasure is, there also will your heart be. Matthew 6:21.
Click here for the informational ordering flyer .
The order deadline is Wednesday, November 2, with order delivery taking place on Thursday, November 17. You will earn 40% of all purchases toward your FFO. Questions? Contact email@example.com.
All Saints Fun Run
The All Saints Fun Run is one of our largest fundraisers of the year, and a favorite of our students of all ages! This year's proceeds will support our greatest asset - our teachers! Funds will provide essential classroom resources and help us continue to close the salary gap between Catholic and public school teachers, recognizing the selfless love they demonstrate for our kids day in and day out.
Over the nine days of this fundraiser, we’ll have challenges and chances to earn prizes individually and as a class as we get ready for the Fun Run on Friday, 9/23/2022. To get the ball rolling, we’re asking everyone to go on mybooster.com and register! Students will earn a chocolate bar for registering, and the homeroom with the highest percentage of students who register tonight will get an extra recess!
Our Fun Run goal is to raise $60,000. If we reach our school wide goal, each homeroom will have a movie and popcorn celebration. We’ll also be engaging in some friendly competitions among classes. The homeroom that collects the most donations will get to give me a pie in the face!
This year’s Fun Run is a little different than past years. While we’re still using the Booster platform to collect donations and pledges, we have brought the rest of the event in-house. This means that every dollar raised goes directly to ASCA, rather than giving a percentage back to Booster. We are excited to maximize the benefit of your generous donations and grateful for the volunteers, especially our event chair Amy Bono, for making this possible.
As we launch this first big fundraiser of the school year, we encourage you to read this letter that outlines fundraisers held throughout the year and how they impact the school.
Thank you in advance for your support of All Saints and the Fun Run!

St Therese Plaza Paver Brick Program
Recognize your student or school family by purchasing a brick as part of our St Therese Plaza Paver Brick Program.

You can make a donation to sponsor a Paver Brick to commemorate any occasion in the course of the school year, or to honor a special student, teacher or coach! This is also a great way to memorialize a loved one, or to celebrate a birthday or anniversary with a gift that will last a lifetime.
The donation options to sponsor a Paver Brick are $175 (6” by 6”), $250 (6” by 12”) or $500 (12” by 12”), and donors receive written thanks for their charitable donations. Also, please note that there are many religious and other icons available to enrich the message and appearance of paver bricks.

Illinois Tax Credit Scholarship Program
Last year, the State of Illinois created a new way to fund scholarships for children who choose to attend Catholic schools through the “Invest in Kids Act.” Under the IllinoisTax Credit Scholarship Program and the “Invest in Kids Act”, individuals and corporations make donations to Scholarship Granting Organizations (SGO) that distribute scholarships to qualified students.
You can designate your contribution to support a student attending All Saints Catholic Academy, and receive a 75% credit on your state of Illinois tax liability. Remember that a tax credit is a dollar for dollar reduction of your tax liability. For example, if you donate $1,000 under the Tax Credit Scholarship Program, you will receive a tax credit equal to 75% of your donation, or $750.
Yes, this is For Real.
- The tax credit is a dollar for dollar reduction of the amount a tax that an individual or corporation owes to the State of Illinois.
- Donors will be able to designate their donation to an individual school - All Saints Catholic Academy.
Why pay money to the State of Illinois, when those monies can help a child at All Saints Catholic Academy.
