Details

This year, each PCHS student is required to raise a minimum of $400, while families with two or more students at Providence are required to raise a minimum of $600.

Students may reach their fundraising obligation by selling $10 raffle tickets and/or online advertising.

All unsold raffle tickets should be returned by 9 am on Wednesday, September 15.


History/Purpose

The Fall Harvest Drive was initiated in 1968 in an effort to raise funds for Providence, which was facing a serious financial crisis. To prevent Providence from closing its doors, the school held a car raffle and carnival that generated $15,000 the first year and $32,000 the following year. Encouraged by the results of this fund-raising effort, the Joliet Diocese decided to keep the doors of the school open.

The Fall Harvest Drive has become an annual mandatory fundraising event that involves the participation of the entire Providence Catholic community. Income generated through the Harvest Drive is vital to the financial stability of the school; proceeds are built directly into the school’s operating budget.  Thanks to the support from the local community and area businesses, Providence is able to keep tuition increases at a minimum and still provide an outstanding college preparatory education to its students.
