The students from the Duluth Area Catholic Schools comb Duluth collecting garbage and recyclables. This fundraisers helps St. John's to make many programs possible for the students.  The money goes directly into the school and is used for updating curriculum and programs.  This event typically occurs the first Friday of October each year.  In 2015 we raised over $24,000!  Way to go students!


The annual Dinner and Auction is the biggest fundraiser for St. John's of the year. The dinner will be held on Thursday, March 10, 2016 at Greysolon Ballroom.

When you purchase scrip, you're purchasing negotiable gift certificates that are used just like cash. The scrip is issued by national and local retailers where many of our families already shop. These merchants want to support non-profit organizations, and in return ask you to support them by shopping with scrip at their stores. You can use scrip to purchase everyday items like food, clothing, and other essentials, and with every purchase, you earn revenue for our school. 

The Scrip program coordinators can be reached at 724-9392 extension 206.
