To kick off our 2011 financial aid fundraising efforts, we are excitedto announce the opening
of our first ever online raffle. More than 65% of our students depend on financial aid, and we expect that we will award more than $420,000 to those students over the coming months.
Enrollment has already begun, and the applications for assistance are rolling in just as quickly. Our Financial Aid Fund has received a grant for $275,000 from the CCC as a starting point, and we now need to raise just $145,000 from our worldwide sangat. We are requesting the assistance of our global community to ensure that all the children of 3HO and Sikh Dharma who want to grow in the teachings are able to do so.
Our goal for this raffle is to spread the word and kick off the effort with a fun, win-win activity to generate at least $20,000 through the sale of 1000 raffle tickets. Tickets are just $20 apiece, and besides helping the children, your ticket buys you the chance to win some of the great prizes that were donated by our friends and family. Please be a part of the effort and buy as many of those 1000 tickets as you can! Every $20 counts.
