Support Our School

CARE Certificates

The C.A.R.E. program (Cards Are Rewards for Education) is a parishioner operated St. Columbkille Parish and School fundraiser. Gift cards are purchased by C.A.R.E. at a discount (between 2-20%) and resold at face value. C.A.R.E. retains the discount as profit and returns 100% of money earned to St. Columbkille by funding various school and parish needs.

These are some of our past donations:

  • Donation of $2,500 to Pave the Way
  • Donation of $950 towards bottle filling drinking fountains for the school
  • Donation of $5,000 to purchase new gym lights for the school
  • Donation of $1,400 for the Reading Early Intervention Program
  • Donation of $4,500 to purchase new security cameras for the school
  • Donation of $7,700 to purchase a stained glass window for the church
  • Donation of $17,000 to purchase projectors for school classrooms
  • Donation of $1,000 to the school for mimeo components
  • Donation of $1,000 every year to the Thanksgiving dinners
  • Funding of two $1,000 scholarships to 8th graders attending a Catholic high school
  • Donations to Fun Lunches, which raised money for the accelerated reader program
  • Donations to Teen Faith for meals
  • And the list goes on...

For parish school families every dollar spent under $1,000 you earn a CARES Rewards discount of 1% on school tuition or religious education fees. If you spend more than $1,000 you will earn 2%. The C.A.R.E. program is successful only when cards are sold. Please utilize this program at retailers where you are already spending money. It is a win-win!

Gift cards are available for over 500 local and national vendors including restaurants, grocery, home/auto, clothing, specialty stores and entertainment including bowling, movie theaters, and music downloads.

C.A.R.E can be purchased 24 hours a day online; after each weekend Mass in the church foyer; or sent to the school with students during the school year.
