The BIG Raffle – Where Everyone Wins

Since 2011, parishes and schools of the Catholic Diocese of Saginaw have raised more than $450,000 through the Big Raffle.

The Foundation administers the St. John Neumann Catholic Education Endowment, which provides grant dollars to programs and initiatives in communities served by the Catholic Diocese of Saginaw. Since the Fund was created in 2012, the Foundation has distributed $186,000 for 62 grants benefiting communities in a variety of ways including vacation bible school and food pantry gardens.

In addition to the many programs supported, the BIG Raffle offers an annual opportunity to win major prizes.


2019 Big Raffle Prizes* are:

  • Grand Prize: NEW Chevrolet Spark or $10,000
  • $5,000 Home Improvement Project.
  • Airfare for TWO to anywhere in the continental United States.
  • Apple iPad
  • Computer laptop

* In the unlikely event that less than 10,000 tickets are sold, there will be one cash prize of $5,000 awarded.
