The Cash Calendar

The Parish Life Group Cash Calendar is an annual fundraiser designed to benefit our pastoral, educational and outreach ministries.  It is our hope that with the Parish Life Group Cash Calendar Raffle we create the largest amount of fundraising dollars with the smallest amount of effort. It’s as easy as purchasing a ticket!  We started the Cash Calendar in an effort to reduce down the number of donation “asks”.   For the 2020-2021 fiscal year, we are forced to eliminate some parish-sponsored fundraising. As a result, this year’s raffle is very important  we are hoping that all parishioners, family, and friends will participate in our Cash Calendar Raffle.

The Cash Calendar raffle runs under the guidelines outlined by the Diocese of San Jose and the State of California. Due to our shelter in place for Covid-19, we will run the Cash Calendar virtually this year. Your name and address will be included in the drawing multiple times, once for each virtual ticket you purchase (see below for ordering). Each virtual ticket you purchase will be a separate opportunity to win and remains in the raffle for the full year, even if you win!

Virtual Raffle tickets are $10 per each. Our Goal is for each family to purchase $300 in tickets to support our parish and school educational, pastoral, and outreach ministries.   Tickets are not tax deductable if you participate in the drawings.  Our order form below includes an opportunity to make a tax-deductable donation and your name will not go into the drawing and your donation will be included in your year end statement.
