Highland Catholic’s annual #GiveHiC Day supports a specific fundraising goal each year.
In the same way that we reimagined the focus of this year’s Marathon, we are excited to incorporate components of service and community building into #GiveHiC Day. This year’s theme is “upgrade your generosity” and offers multiple opportunities for making an impact. Our goal is to raise $20,000 for the purchase of new laptops for all our homeroom teachers and unlock a $5,000 match. We’ve also partnered with Minnesota Computers for Schools for a Technology Drive to help connect local families in need with the computers and access required for their children’s education and development.
Ever wonder about the $50 Scrip charge on your tuition statement? Scrip is a fundraising program for Highland Catholic School that raises about $20,000 each year for school operations. But that’s not all! You can earn your initial $50 payment back. Here’s how it works.
Highland Catholic purchases gift cards from local and national vendors at a discount ranging from 2%-20%. Then you buy these gift cards from Hi-C at full face value. The school keeps the difference.

Marathon for Non-Public Education
We launch our Marathon the opening week of school. We are all ready for some upbeat excitement, and friendly competition. Instead of our students walking a marathon, this year we will use their amazing energy and talents in a “Marathon of Service.” Each grade level will plan and incorporate age-appropriate service projects, which will be spread out throughout the school year. Our school wide goal is to raise at least $50,000. Once we receive that goal, ALL of our students will receive a t-shirt. If you would like to support Highland Catholic School through the Marathon effort, please send all marathon pledges and money to the school office. Make sure the envelope includes your name, and references the ‘Marathon’ on the envelope. You can also donate by clicking on the Donate button above. You can add a note for “Marathon” after selecting the PayPal or credit card option.

Swing is Highland Catholic School’s night of fundraising that directly benefits students, teachers and families. Annually on the first weekend in May, we gather as a strong community to show our support for Highand Catholic School. The event is comprised of an online, silent and live auction, as well as games and good cheer. It’s a great opportunity for gathering with old friends, getting to know new families and just having fun! Swing is a product of so many people’s and organization’s generosity. It’s a labor of love by this remarkable community “for the kids.”
