Ways and Means Committees

  • School Support Sunday (September) - Chairperson - Dustin Balderama
    School Support Sunday Pledge: This event is held on Catechetical Sunday in September. Families from the school and from the parish are invited to support the school with a financial donation, in order to maintain the quality of education while keeping tuition down. The school provides an update to the parish on its activities and successes through Mass announcements and bulletin articles or inserts.
    Family Pledge: Like School Support Sunday, families are asked to pledge an additional donation to help with the school finances. Pledges are tax deductable and can be made in full or four monthly payments. Fundraisers, grants and pledges are an essential part of the development and growth of St. Anastasia Catholic School. Much of the school’s budget comes from additional support that allows the school to keep tuition affordable.

    Jog-A-Thon (October) - Chairpersons:  Denise Gustafson and Jennifer Garmon 

    Parents and guests can cheer our students who participate in this event.  Jog-A-Thon is both a fundraising and community building event. From a fundraising standpoint the Jog-a-Thon is very beneficial because every dollar raised comes directly to the school, rather than sharing donations with an outside vendor.

    Book Fair (October) - Chairpersons - Nicole Johnson & Janel Ray

    Parish Ball (March) - Chairpersons - Vickie Farmer and Jackie Blackmore
    This is our school’s biggest and most successful fundraiser of the year.  It is a Parish and School Event, with a Silent Auction, Live Auction, Dinner and Dancing.  It is truly a magical night! It is Mandatory that every school family give a least 3 of their 30 volunteer hours to this event.  We need many volunteers to make all of these events possible and raise money for our school and our children. 
    Golf Tournament (Spring) - Chairperson - Erik Helmstetter
    This event is a great fundraiser and social event for the school. The tournament and dinner are run jointly with the Parish Men’s Club and the PTO and is typically held in the spring. This is organized by the Men’s Club. 
    Restaurant Fundraisers (Various) - Chairperson: Robyn Stein
    Contacts local restuarants and organizes restuarant fundraiser nights.  St. Anastasia familes and friends dine in or out on certain nights and part of the proceeds are given back to the school.  
    See’s Candy Fundraiser (December and Easter) - Chairpersons:  Patty Wiacek & Mary Paquin 
    E‐scrip/Grocery Store Community Partners (Year round) - Chairperson - Debbie Morales

    General Mills Box Tops/Tyson (Year round) - Chairperson -  Christine Times
    Families are encouraged to collect box tops and product labels year round. The school earns points, which are redeemed for school supplies and cash.

    Grant Writer (Year round) - Chairperson - Paula Sandoval

Our major grants come from the William H. Hannon Foundation, Playa Vista, and the Monsignor Vadakin Arts and Education Fund. To make a donation, or find out more, contact llance@st-anastasia.org.
