More than $15 million raised for Catholic Schools

Since 2009, the Catholic United Financial Raffle has been one of the most effective and impactful fundraisers for Catholic education in the Upper Midwest. In fact, 2 out of 3 of all K-8 Catholic schools in the region have participated at least once in the Raffle, and we’re inviting more schools to partner with us every year! 

Welcome to our new schools

Welcome to the students and staff at St. Thomas School of Madison, SD and St. Thomas More Catholic School of Brookings, SD as first-time participants of the Raffle.

Schools win with the Raffle

Our partner schools get to keep 100% of the dollars they raise through the Raffle. The program history of giving is a huge success, thanks to the great effort by students and staff.

More than $35,000 in prizes
