Fundraising is one of the single most important sources of non-tuition income for Our Redeemer Lutheran School. We are grateful to our families for their generous support of these various fundraising activities:
Quest for Excellence (QFE)
The Quest for Excellence Campaign is our largest fundraiser and is typically held from mid-October until calendar year-end. An early morning breakfast marks the beginning of QFE where families and Our Redeemer Lutheran Church members are asked to pledge their support for the school. A 100% participation of all school families also allows for additional support from other sources.
Box Tops for Education
Families and church members clip the “Box Tops” from specially-marked packages and bring them to school. Each Box Top is worth 10 cents. In addition, the Box Tops for Education website provides various shopping opportunities for which a percentage of sales goes back to the school.
Gifts? Home renovations? Grocery shopping? Filling up the car? Help our school generate revenue while you shop! You pay face value for gift cards from SCRIP. For each gift card purchased the school gets a percentage rebate. The percentage the school receives varies by retailer. Visit the Great Lakes SCRIP website at www.glscrip.com to to sign up, see a full list of participating retailers, and order your gift cards. If you prefer to pay with a check, see the SCRIP information packet.

ORLS Annual Auction
Each spring, Our Redeemer hosts a themed auction evening for parents and friends to help raise funds for the school. Volunteers chair the event, which is held at different venues depending on theme, and has featured dinners, live auctions, silent auctions, dancing, games and much more through the years. The Auction is a social highlight at ORLS and a wonderful way to support the school.
