Carroll Catholic School was the overall
winner of the school fundraising program available through Culver's
of Lincoln. During the past school year, Carroll raised a total of
$8,400 through the Culver's program. The school has already received
10 percent of that amount and will now receive a check for $840, for
a total of $1,680 donated to the school.
In the 2011-2012 school year, the fundraising program resulted in
almost $3,000 donated to local schools. Culver's has offered this
program for four years and has donated over $12,000 to the schools.
About the program:
Local schools pick a specific day each month to have as their
fundraiser day. Students, teachers, families and friends come dine
inside or visit the Culver's drive-thru on the set day. A form is
filled out including the total sales amount, class and teacher. At
the end of the night, the amount from the forms is totaled up. The
schools receive 10 percent of this amount. The classroom that
brought in the most money also receives a custard party delivered by
a Culver's team member.
Schools have done many things to remind teachers and students
that it is "Culver's Day." Bands played and students recited poems
in the dining room. Teachers ordered from Culver's for lunch the day
of the fundraiser. Some schools used the automated parent
notification system as well. These are just a few ways the schools
promoted their event.

School fundraisers will begin again in September. The fundraisers
will be all-day events on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays.
Schools pick their day, so be on the lookout for your school's day.
Customers do not need to know someone enrolled in the school; just
come out to Culver's and help out the schools.
