Why should I support Our Parish Fundraiser?
As parishioners you want the very best parish facilities.
We know that parish income is not keeping up with rising costs - heat, power, repairs etc. Across Ireland, every parish is faced with the challenge on how to get parish income to cover the running costs of the parish. Parish collections are decreasing in value and there are multiple low value / high effort fundraising initiatives e.g. cake sales, a golf classic.
We use technology to help parishes fundraise in order to provide the very best parish facilities and to build a strong community. We do this by creating and running a weekly parish draw just for your parish which allows parishioners and the community to directly support their parish.
For less than the price of a coffee per week parishioners can make an immediate impact for your parish and have a chance to win your parish fundraiser Jackpot. The more parishioners that participate, the more money is raised for your parish and the bigger the Jackpot will be.
How do I support my parish?
To support your parish, you open an account and pick 4 numbers to play a line in our weekly draw or you can just click the 'Quick Pick' button and we will pick them for you. It’s a subscription lotto so you don’t need to pick numbers every week, you only pick once, and we will enter your numbers in the weekly draw.
You can change or cancel your numbers at any time.
How much is it?
A line costs €2 per week or three lines for €5. You can select up to three lines per week for your parish lotto.
How can I pay?
No more searching for coins. To pay you'll need a valid Debit Card or Credit Card. We use this method and a secure payment portal to make it easy for you. To make it easy for your parish, we process a payment every four weeks.
How do I win?
A draw takes place every Thursday at 8.00 pm where four numbers are drawn at random. If your four numbers match the four numbers drawn, then you will win or share in the jackpot. If the jackpot is not won, then a Weekly Prize winner is picked at random. The Weekly Prize amount is predetermined by the parish and is usually between €25 to €50. This means that someone from your parish is guaranteed to win every week.
How do I know if I’ve won?
We email the Jackpot winner(s) or the Weekly Prize winner and the parish office after every draw. The winning numbers, jackpot winners and weekly prize winners will be published on our website to allow you to check in.
How much is the Jackpot?
The Jackpot is calculated based on the number of lines. If the Jackpot is not won, then the Jackpot will carry over and increase based on the number of lines. The Jackpot value will be published on your parishes lotto website in the lead up to each weekly draw. The Jackpot can increase to a maximum Jackpot of €15,000. Once the Jackpot reaches the maximum Jackpot, a reserve Jackpot will commence. The reserve Jackpot will be in play the week after the maximum Jackpot of €15,000 is won.
Where does the money go?
Your contributions go directly to help your parish and also to cover the cost of the Jackpot, Weekly Prizes and running the draw.
