Knights of Columbus Offers Catholic School Tuition Lottery
To assist with the cost of Catholic education, the Louisiana State Council of the Knights of Columbus has a new program called the “Catholic School Tuition Lottery Program.” This free program helps pay for a child’s Catholic school tuition.
Members of the Knights of Columbus having children in a Catholic school (from Pre-K to 12 grade) are eligible to enroll their children in this free lottery. Non-members can become eligible for the lottery by joining the Knights of Columbus (assuming they are at least 18 years old, male and Catholic). Thus, this program is only open to members of the Knights of Columbus.
Each quarter the Knights of Columbus will randomly draw the names of four students and, if selected, directly pay their school $500 towards the child’s tuition. The entry form stays in the pool of applicants, thereby providing the chance for the child’s name to be drawn more than once!
