On-Going School Fundraisers

Gift Card Program

The Gift Card Program is an on-going fundraiser in which people have the opportunity to purchase gift cards to over 1,000 vendors from Our Lady of Mercy School.  Our Lady of Mercy purchases these cards at a discount rate and sells them at face value.  

The profit generated by buying cards will be split 50% to the school and 50% towards your tuition.

If you have any questions, please email Eric Skjeveland at

Our Lady of Mercy School earned more than $6,000 from the sale of gift cards between October 2010 and March 2011! Please continue to support this important fundraiser.

Matching Gifts for Charities

Does Your Company Have a Matching Funds Program?

Do you know whether your company offers a Matching Funds Program, and if so, whether it includes tax exempt 501(c)(3) organizations?  If it does, your donations to Our Lady of Mercy can easily be doubled!  Here's something even more interesting... some companies will "match" your volunteer time with dollars!  In other words, if you volunteer at OLM, your employer will convert your volunteer hours into dollars and provide a check to OLM to match your efforts.

For many of you who work for larger companies, Matching Fund Programs are one of your employee benefits.  Each company has different guidelines and procedures for matching your monetary contributions, and some will also match your volunteer hours or provide grants for your volunteer projects at OLM.  Attached is a partial list of companies that provide this benefit to their employees.  If your company is not listed, check their website or call your Human Resources department to find out whether they offer this benefit, and if so, how to take advantage of it.  It's easier than you think.
