Every year SHA has the opportunity to receive thousands of dollars in free money from collecting labels that would otherwise go out in the trash, or receipts from purchases you already make. No additional purchases are required. These labels and points can add up to a substantial amount of money for our school.
We use the money mainly for teachers to purchase classroom supplies. We would like to invite all parents, parishioners and friends of the Academy to participate in any or all of the programs available and help us get the free monies these companies are willing to give our school. SHA is not asking you to buy anything extra—just save labels, box tops or the credit you get for using a designated card or purchasing gift cards.
Below is an outline of the programs available. If you have any questions about these program(s), kindly contact: Mary Kay Reetz, Marketing/Admissions Director, (989) 772-1457 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Attention Amazon Shoppers! Help the Sacred Heart Home and School Association raise money to support our teachers, staff, students and families by starting HERE when you shop on Amazon. Amazon will donate 0.5% of each purchase to SHA’s Home and School Association. Are you already supporting a charity and wish to change? Log onto smile.amazon.com, and under "Or pick your own charitable organization" and enter Sacred Heart Parish/Sacred Heart Academy (make sure you select Mt. Pleasant, MI). Home and School will use these funds to continue to support teacher appreciation events, student events like the end of year carnival, family events, and Catholic Schools week. As you help us build our funds by earning on purchases you are already making, we will be able to support more of these fun events!

Target pays back 1 percent of your credit card purchases to Sacred Heart Academy when you use the Target Red Card at Target or target.com. Simply designate Sacred Heart Academy, Mt. Pleasant, Michigan, when you apply for the card.
Scrip The Scrip program offers the opportunity to purchase gift cards to local and national retailers at their face value. The retailers pay a percentage back which can be dedicated to your personal tuition account, to the parish, or to the Academy. The percentages range from 1.5 % to 14% and many local vendors participate. This is a great way to help fund tuition or help Sacred Heart because it is money you would spend anyway, with an automatic rebate attached. Stop by the Parish Administration office or visit http://academy.sha.net/parents/scrip.cfm to register and start purchasing today! You will be impressed by the list of local and national vendors.
