St. Cletus School engages in a number of fundraising activities to enhance learning, enrich childrens faith and foster service, keep tuition affordable, and encourage fellowship among students and parents. Thank you to our generous sponsors and incredible volunteers who make all of these fundraisers a success.
If you have any questions, please contact us.
The Annual Fund
The Annual Fund is to bridge the gap between the actual cost of educating our students and the income we receive from tuition. Without the Annual Fund we would not be able to keep the annual increase in tuition to a minimum.
Major Fundraising Events
Our parish Fall Fest features live entertainment on the main stage, kids games, and carnival rides. There's truly something for everyone at Fall Fest!
Spring Gala and Auction
Each year the look may be a little bit different but the purpose is always the same: to break out of the late winter/early spring doldrums and have fun while benefiting our school. This event includes both a Silent and Live auction, games of chance, raffles, drinks, food and dancing.
Cardinal Open Golf Outing
Fore! In June we kick the summer off with our annual St. Cletus Cardinal Open Golf Outing. School families, parishioners, alumni and community members are invited to join us for golf, followed by dinner, games of chance and raffles.

D4D (formerly Dining for Dollars)
These FSA-sponsored outings provide an opportunity for students, parents, parishioners, staff and their family and friends to meet at local dining establishments to socialize and enjoy the company of fellow Cardinals outside of the school setting. Proceeds are used to fund FSA sponsored programs such as the Children’s Christmas Party, Teacher Appreciation Luncheon, End of the Year Picnic and more. All are welcome to attend D4D events! Some events may require event flyers which are posted on the parent page and in the School Scoop.
