MANNA - the fundraiser that pays you!
The MANNA Program is an easy way to lower your tuition, and help SS. Cyril & Methodius Parish at the same time with no additional cost to you. To participate in the program, you purchase gift cards through the school and use them at local grocery and department stores as well as gas stations, restaurants and specialty stores.
How do I lower my tuition costs by using MANNA?
St. Cyril's purchases the gift cards for discounted rates from 1% - 20%. The discounted rate is the profit for the MANNA program. This profit is then split: 50/50 between SS. Cyril & Methodius Parish and the participant. The portion that accrues in each customer's account is paid out by way of tuition credit. Currently the pay outs are applied to the September, December and April tuition statments for the St. Cyril school families and to the following school year's tuition for the religious education families.
How can I use MANNA?
Anyone and everyone who shops or uses the services offered can use
Manna. School families, parish families, teachers, staff and
friends/neighbors as well can purchase the gift cards through the school.
Program participants who do not attend the school or religious education
program can have their puchases credited to school or religious education
families, or leave the profit to the parish.
Why should I order MANNA?
The number one reason that all families should be using the MANNA
Program is because this is an easy way to offset the rising cost of school
tuition. Last year, the MANNA Program generated about $10,000 for the
parish. In addition, about 175 school and religious education families
received tuition credit. Some families received as much as $400 for the
year! The more you purchase the more you save.
