We have many avenues of providing financial assistance to St. Ferdinand School:

Individual Donations: 

        Families or individuals who wish to make a donation to the school are encouraged to                    contact the school office. Monetary donations are gratefully accepted.  Donations of items            or supplies are accepted pending the school's needs.

Matching Gift Program:  

        If your employer, or the company you have retired from, offers a matching gift                               program, we encourage you to name our school as the recipient of your                                       contribution.  For additional information regarding this program, please contact Mrs. Wilcox         in the School Office (314-921-2201).

“Together We’re Better” Scrip Program:  

        You can purchase scrip gift cards or certificates through the parish rectory, after each mass         on Saturday evening and Sunday morning, or online.  Scrip merchants make a monetary            contribution to the parish to assist with many school programs.  Parents of school or PSR            students can use the contribution to offset tuition fees.  An agreement form is                               necessary in order to participate in the rebate program, and this form can be obtained from         the rectory or after mass.  Go to for more information on the merchants         and the rebate percentages available.  To utilize the online scrip purchase option, one must         also complete the setup process as explained in the online purchase of scrip process.doc            file available here. 

Box Tops for Education, Original Ink Jet Cartridges, and Aluminum Can Tabs 

        These items are collected  and sent in for reimbursement throughout the year.  Items can             be dropped at the school office or the H&S basket in the Church entrance area.  The                 proceeds from this assist with  the activities funded through the Home and School                         Organization. 

Paper, Aluminum Can, and Clothing 

        Bins are located on the parish parking lot.  Families  may contribute these items throughout         the year.   Financial support for the church is no longer provided by the recycling company         for these items.
