All proceeds will go directly to the program with SunGard Higher Education matching the amount raised from for the sale of raffle tickets.

SunGard Higher Education serves colleges, universities and foundations in 40 countries worldwide. Through its Open Digital Campus strategy, SunGard collaborates with the higher education community and provides software and services to help institutions find better ways to teach, learn, manage and connect. SunGard Higher Education’s mission is to promote individual achievement, enhance institutional performance, and foster education communities worldwide.
