Donate to our Scholarship Fund!

Direct donations via our auction website will go towards the St. John’s CCDC Scholarship Fund!

These are economically tough times for many families in our communities, and even more so for single, working parents. Caring for your child or helping them with their schoolwork is difficult when working in the workplace or at home. But knowing your child is in a safe, fun and educational place where they are loved and cared for while you work is an invaluable feeling that we want to give to a family in need.

That’s why we are hoping to raise enough money to fund a year’s worth of tuition for a new family in our community. The recipient of this scholarship will be a single parent family, earning no more than $38,000 per year.

We’re collecting direct monetary donations on our auction website (click the green Donate button in the upper righthand corner of the homepage), as well as via Venmo. If you donate via Venmo (@stjohnsccdc), please label your donation as “Fall Fundraiser Donation” so we know what it’s for!

Tax-Deductible Options

All donations are tax-deductible. When you bid on and purchase an item at a higher cost than the fair market value of the item itself, that purchase is tax-deductible as well. Reach out to our social media and community manager, Katie, at for a tax letter. Items bid on and purchased for lower than its fair market value are not eligible as tax-deductible.
