St. Gerald Manna Program



What is the Manna Program?

The Manna Program is an opportunity to purchase a variety of gift cards and receive a rebate towards tuition.

Manna has been a part of St. Gerald for over 20 years and benefits the school community in two ways. First, it directly reduces tuition costs for participants. Secondly it supports the technology program by maintaining, repairing and replacing existing equipment and programs. Each year, if funds allow, a project is chosen by the Pastor and Principal to use accumulated Manna funds to enhance the technology of the school. Manna also supports monthly technology maintenance expenses as the funds allow.

How does it work?

Because we purchase gift cards in large quantities from local vendors, we receive a rebate. We pass on a part of that rebate in the form of a tuition credit to you.  Every two months, a tuition earnings credit will be posted on your Smart Tuition account.  If your tuition is paid up, you can receive a credit for next year or a cash payment.

What if I do not have a student attending St. Gerald School?

Your tuition credits can be applied to your child’s REY, High School or College Tuition. You can apply your credits to another family, an unspecified needy family, St. Gerald Parish or the Technology Program.
