Support our School
We couldn’t do it without you! Your support of our fundraising efforts, your charitable contributions, and your willingness to volunteer on committees and in our classrooms help make Father Marquette Catholic School a great place for our students to grow educationally and spiritually.
The school’s main sources of third source funding are
Scrip is a program where the school buys gift certificates from vendors at a discount and sells them for face value, keeping the profit. National and local vendors participate. At FMCS, scrip purchase is not mandatory, but families can use a certain amount of scrip purchases to supplement tuition. Families have until spring each year to purchase scrip to offset a certain amount of tuition revenue that is needed to operate the school and pay our teachers. Our council publishes this offset, called the scrip profit goal and which is usually around $300, every year. Once a family meets the profit goal, we will be happy to apply any additional scrip profit toward a reduction in tuition for the next school year. It sounds more complicated than it is. Ask an office staff member if you need more information. We sell scrip at each school and after Mass at the parishes.
Other Third-Source Funding
Turn the following in to either office:
Please consider our endowments when planning your charitable contributions. Your regular support of these two funds helps us keep tuition as low as possible.
The Home and School Association (HSA) is your connection to the teachers, support staff, administration, activities, and events at Father Marquette Middle School.
Volunteerism is essential to school success, and FMCS parent volunteers are the best! In fact, in the last survey of parent volunteerism, we found that over 90% of parents volunteer in some capacity.
