Ways and Means Committees

    Annual Appeal (year round) - Chairpersons - Beth O'Rourke and Jessica Wagner
    Families are asked to make a donation to help with school finances.  This money, unlike tuition, is tax deductable and can be made in full or multiple payments throughout the school year.  Fundraisers, grants and appeals are an essintial 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.
    School Support Sunday (September) - Chairperson - Dustin Balderama
    School Support Sunday 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 during mass, 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. A pancake breakfast is provided after all morning masses as a thank you to the parish for donations.

    Jog-A-Thon (October) - Chairpersons:  Denise Gustafson & 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

    Each fall the PTO runs a book fair in the parish hall.  All money spent earns the school points towards new books for the library and classrooms.   Teachers provide wish lists that parents can purchase from for the classroom.  Older classes will have a posted book list of required reading for the year.  These books are stocked at the book fair for the parent's convenience.

    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, Raffle, 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 purchase take 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 - 
    Bristol Farms and Restaurants:

    Grant/Endowment Researcher (Year round) - Chairperson - 
    We have been fortunate to receive monetary grants and donations that help support our school with tuition assistance, tuition scholarships, technology, staff development, and the performing arts. Our major grants come from the William H. Hannon Foundation, Playa Vista, and the Monsignor Vadakin Arts and Education Fund.
