Support Our School and our Partners

All Saints Catholic Academy relies on the financial and volunteer help of its many supporters. If you have questions on how to help us financially or wish to give to a specific project, please call (630) 961-6125. 

 

Please note that All Saints Catholic Academy is a Religious organization that falls under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code.  Your gift may qualify as a charitable deduction for federal income tax purposes. It is always a good idea to consult with your tax advisers or the IRS to determine whether a contribution is deductible. 

 

RaiseRight Gift Card 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 purchaseda 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!

 

RaiseRight earnings from March 1, 2023 to February 29, 2024 will be applied to the 2023-2024 school year.   RaiseRight earnings from March 1, 2024 to February 28, 2025 will be applied to the 2024-2025 school year.  Begin earning TODAY - it’s easier than you think! Raise Right has over 580 vendors available to purchase gift cards from and use at your convenience. 

 

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.

 

Click here for the 2023-2024 RaiseRight Physical Gift Card Waiver.   2024-2025 waiver will be uploaded in August 2024.

 

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!

Tax Credit Scholarship Campaign Update

Thank you to everyone who has expressed past support for this program.  It is with deep sadness that the Invest in Kids Act Tax Credit Scholarship Program was allowed to sunset at the end of 2023.  

 
This is most certainly not the outcome we all hoped and worked so hard for; however, the folks at Empower Illinois, a Scholarship Granting Organization (SGO),  continue to work toward bringing school choice back to Illinois and the opportunity for students to be able to attend a best fit school.

 

Since January 2024, they have been working hard to reinstate the Invest in Kids Act. This has included meeting with legislators, listening to their concerns, asking lobbyists to meet with specific legislators, working with lead sponsors, and trying to build partnerships with school choice minded coalitions.   Unfortunately, progress is slow moving. Simply put, tax credit scholarships are an issue that legislators wish would just go away, and the longer they run from us, the more likely they think that will happen.

 

If this is a program that resonates with you personally or philosophically, you are encouraged to contact your elected representatives to make your voice known, as you are their constituents.  As parents, especially those they are elected to represent, give a reason for them to meet with you.  It is only through grass roots, boots on the ground activism that school choice and opportunity can possibly return to the State of Illinois. 

 

 

God Bless and Go Saints!

 

 

 

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!

 

If you have any fundraising questions, please contact fundraising@ascascademy.org.
