 $7 MILLION Total Raised for Catholic Education


We are excited to announce that our "Catholic Schools Sweepstakes" Program has raised a grand total of $7,000,000.00 benefitting Catholic school education. Even more exciting-- the participating schools get to keep 100% of the funds raised!

The “Catholic Life Sweepstakes” was started in 2007 as a way to help Catholic schools in Texas raise much-needed funds. We provide the prizes, the raffle tickets, and the marketing materials while the students at the participating schools sell the tickets. Tickets are sold at $5.00 each. As of this year, our “Catholic Life Sweepstakes” fundraising program has helped Catholic schools throughout Texas raise more than $7 million during the past decade.

The schools use the funds they have raised however they wish, including tuition assistance for students, the purchase of new playground or advanced computer equipment, or the augmentation of teacher salaries.
