Supporting Holy Name School
The Angel Fund Tuition Assistance Program
provides scholarship help to students in financial need
Holy Name School is blessed with endowments that enable tuition to be kept relatively low.
Unfortunately, some of our families cannot afford even this amount. Several years ago, the
Angel Fund was established to help those families with tuition assistance. If you are someone
who appreciates what Catholic education can do for a child, the Church and society, you are
invited to contribute to the Angel Fund. Many people have named the Angel Fund as a way to
memorialize deceased loved ones. Please note that 100% of all Angel Fund money stays in Holy
Name Parish and is used only for tuition assistance. Donations can be made payable and mailed
to the following:

Major Retailers Still Want To Give Our School Money, Don’t Tell Them No!
We are continuing with our SCRIP fundraising program. And with your help we can go from a
good year last year to a great year this year. This is one time you can make a difference every
time you fill up with gas or buy groceries.
Scrip is simply a word that means “substitute money” – in other words, scrip is gift
certificates from national and local retailers. They a the same gift certificates that you buy at
the store. Many popular retailers participate in our scrip program (see the link for
These retailers agree to sell gift certificates to our organization at a discount. Member
families like yours, buy the certificates for full face value, then they redeem them for full face
value, and our school keeps the difference as revenue.
The beauty of scrip is that you put your regular household shopping dollars to work. You
earn money for our school without spending a single additional penny. Just spend your regular
shopping dollars with scrip at the stores that participate in the scrip program! And scrip can be
used for just about any household purchase including food, clothing, entertainment, gasoline
and even dining out.
The Holy Name scrip program promises to be a simple and effective fundraising program.
Thank you for your support.
