Shop for Christmas & Support St. Martin’s

Christmas will be here before you know it and as you start your holiday shopping, we wanted to remind you of ways that you can help to support St. Martin’s as you shop!

NEW: DVD and BLU-RAY Movies
When you buy DVD and Blu-Ray movies through Fundertainment, up to 50% of the purchase price comes back to the school! Simply head over to and:

  • Register online for a Fundertainment ID# or download and fill out the Fundertainment form and fax it to (888) 245-7486 to create your account.
  • Spread the news to your family and friends and make sure to tell them your Fundertainment ID# so that their orders will be properly credited to you and shipped to the school. Remember to tell them that orders will be shipped to the school and ordering deadlines are the 1st & 15th of each month.
  • Pick up order from the school twice a month (about two weeks after orders are placed) and deliver any orders made by family and friends.

Fundertainment has hundreds of titles available in many different categories including: Children’s, Action, New Releases and more! This fundraiser will run all year long and each month there are new releases and special offers. Hundreds of titles are available!

Didn’t get to the BookFair or forgot to buy for someone? You, friends and family members can shop online until November 18th and Scholastic dollars will still come back to the school. We can then use those dollars to buy new books and other items for the library. Simply head over to Scholastic and shop our virtual Book Fair! Online orders will be shipped for free to the school after November 18th.

Virtual BookFair orders must be placed by November 18th!

Thank you so much for your support! Remember, each time you shop in one of the above ways, you earn much needed funds for our school!
