 Helping Catholic Schools


The Catholic Life Insurance Sweepstakes Program has helped Catholic schools in the state of Texas raise more than $5 million benefiting Catholic education over the past eight years.

"As the school year begins many schools have immediate financial needs. All monies raised through this program go directly and immediately to the school," said Catholic Life President/CEO J. Michael Belz. "This is our way of helping Catholic schools and giving back to our faith-based community. We are proud of what we have been able to accomplish thus far for Catholic education."

UPDATE: We are excited to announce that a record number of tickets were sold during the 2015 Catholic Life Insurance Sweepstakes! Students attending the 61 participating Catholic schools sold a total of 199,226 tickets and raised $996,130 benefitting Catholic school education, and they get to keep 100% of the funds raised. This brings our eight year total to more than $5 million raised!
