Earn college tuition money by supporting one-five Foundation raffle

By the year 2030, the cost of a four-year college education is expected to exceed $175,000. Enter the one-five Foundation’s 529 College Fund 50/50 Raffle for your chance to win up to $26,450 to offset those expenses.

The more tickets that are sold, the higher the jackpot will be. There are 363 tickets left to purchase--get yours today!

Each $100 ticket purchased will earn one entry into the raffle. Buy tickets online by visiting www.ccsd15.net/529fund.


Half of the money raised through the raffle (up to $26,450) will be retained by the one-five Foundation to further its work enhancing the classroom experience for District 15 students. The other half of the money raised (up to $26,450) will be issued to the raffle winner with the intent that the winner create or contribute to a “529 Plan,” an educational savings program with tax benefits meant to help families fund their child’s future college costs.
