Payroll Deduction Online Form

$5 per entry per pay period — automatically deducted by payroll. To increase your chances, you may purchase a second entry for an additional $5 per pay.  Remember each entry is $5; each additional entry increases your chances of winning!  Payroll provides names of participants. The TRU Foundation uses to draw a number.

Look for the winner to be announced on payday Thursday. The winnings will be issued via cheque or direct deposit by the next lottery draw.

Just ask our previous winners how exciting and rewarding it is to play the payroll lottery. Congratulations to all our winners and participants for assisting students with education costs!
