No. We believe it is important for each student to contribute to helping make a Cathedral education available to everyone. However, Cathedral does recognize that having multiple children participating in the student raffle at one time can potentially be difficult for a family. Students/families who are having trouble selling tickets should contact Mr. Howard Fogel firstname.lastname@example.org as soon as possible. Mr. Fogel will be able to provide a list of resources to help with selling tickets.
Please try and sell as many tickets as you can. Then if you are still unsuccessful, see Mr. Howard Fogel and he will help you to find ways to sell your tickets. If you choose to not participate in the student raffle then students will be required to participate in the Day of Philanthropy which will be held on Thursday, October 20, 2016.
You may sign an agreement to help out our advancement offices by volunteering with the set-up, operation and/or breakdown of advancement events. These can include ShamrAuction, Phone-a-thon, Cathedral Fund Dinner, alumni events etc. You will be given credit for each hour worked that will count toward the student fundraiser financial requirement. You will be required to sign a contract with Mr. Howard Fogel if you are not able to sell tickets.
NOTE: No philanthropy contracts will be signed with students who sell zero tickets. A concerted effort must be shown to Mr. Fogel prior to signing a service contract. All service contracts will be signed at the discretion of Mr. Fogel.
There is no product that can be sold, therefore the entire cost of the ticket will be used to help with our tuition assistance fund and/or our newly created philanthropy fund. Should you wish to not purchase raffle tickets and just contribute $250, this would qualify as a tax deductible contribution.
