There are many ways that families, friends, grandparents, teachers and staff, alumni and parishioners can help support Wauwatosa Catholic School. Attend events, donate supplies, dine out during monthly restaurant nights, collect items and/or keep our school in your daily prayers.
Some easy ways that everyone and anyone can support Wauwatosa Catholic School are listed below - we like to call these "passive fundraisers." Do you have family that lives out of state? No worries, tell them about AmazonSmile or Shoparoo. Please take a moment to read through the various passive fundraising programs below and pick one or all to help support. The more support the more successful the program is for Wauwatosa Catholic School.
It's as simple as taking a few minutes to set Wauwatosa Catholic School as your charity on Amazon Smile, snap a photo of receipts on Shoparoo, or clip Box Tops off of a package. All items can be turned into the school office, parish offices or in the back of church (St. Bernard or St. Pius X) and/or to your child's teacher. Please contact the school office with additional questions. Thank you for supporting these programs.
Please Note: The Target Take Charge of Education program ended May 2016, Cambell's Labels for Education program ended in 2017 and we are no longer collecting coke product codes. Many thanks to all who participated in these programs.

HOW IT WORKS
Once Schoola receives the clothing, they sort it, determine the resale prices of qualifying items, take a picture of each one, and get it up for sale on Schoola.com. WCS receives 40% of the sales proceeds from each item sold, less the cost of shipping for the inventory to reach our warehouse. You can find your items and track your fundraising progress on your school's very own Schoola fundraising page. We issue checks twice a year in July and January.
You should receive an email when your bag has been received, and once accepted items begin to become available on our website.We process items as quickly as possible, and depending on the volume of donations we are processing at any given time, listing times will vary. You will also receive an email when items sell.
Clothes that do not meet our standard for resale are redistributed via bulk channels with 40% of those sales proceeds going to the donating school.
Request a donation bag OR print a postage paid label (Click on "I know the school I want to benefit" and enter 53213 in the school zip code box and/or Wauwatosa Catholic School in the school name box). You will be asked to enter your full name, email address, street address and zip code.
