Since the 1985-1986 school year, the annual Mater Dei Calendar Drive has played a vital role in our fundraising efforts. This fundraiser, the only fundraiser for which we request participation by all students, supports the Mater Dei general fund.
A key component of the success of the Mater Dei Calendar Drive is its simplicity: for only $25, a buyer receives a calendar and 391 chances to win cash ($30 daily, $100 and $500 monthly, and $1,000 and $2,000 on December 31). (Of course, a leap year brings an additional chance to win!) The calendar lists key events and includes color photos showcasing our students.
Of course, the main component of the success of the Mater Dei Calendar Drive is the support of both those who sell calendars and those who purchase calendars. In recent years, over 4,000 calendars are sold each year! Thus, the Mater Dei community is truly grateful to all who support the Calendar Drive!
