Support San Jose Catholic School

home / support SJCS / Fundraising Events

Fundraising is a necessary component of a Catholic education, and at San Jose Catholic School there are many ways to get involved and make a difference. Each year our devoted parents, parishioners, and the entire San Jose Catholic community of friends come together to help us raise needed funds that help us supplement the budget, provide enhancements to classrooms, purchase up-to-date educational tools and continue music, foreign language, theater, and art enrichment programs. These contributions are immeasurable in how they support the mission of our school and are a worthy model of stewardship for us all.

Listed below are many ways you can help us raise money. Some are annual events hosted by our Home & School Association; others are seasonal ticket sales opportunities and year-round, on-going corporate give-back programs. You can also find information about contributing to specific school programs such as Athletics, Library and Arts Enrichment.

Annual Fundraising Events

The event is planned during the month of October with an opportunity to purchase reserved tables and sponsorship packages. It’s truly a memorable evening of good old fashioned fun that brings everyone together in celebration! Check back for updates as the event draws closer.
