Are you in charge of a charity or helping raise funds for your community or public service? If so, you’re probably constantly trying to think of ways to raise money and get people to donate. Many people donate to medical research, community services, and other worthwhile charities out of the kindness of their hearts or because they know someone affected by a certain medical condition. However, there are millions of people that you need to reach in order to raise the funds necessary for your cause. A raffle drawing for a variety of prizes is a great way to attract people who have no personal connection to your charity or cause but want a chance to win prizes. With the option for international gift delivery, you can open your raffle to people from all over the world. Advertise to Attract Donations sweet & savouryBefore you start taking donations, you need to advertise the raffle. Start locally, advertising in the local paper and sending out mailers and passing out flyers. Make sure you include a list of the available prizes to entice people to buy a raffle ticket. Take your marketing online and advertise to people all over the world. There are raffle websites that let you list what you’re collecting money for and what’s being offered to those who donate. Advertise the raffle on your business website or charity website, and use social media to quickly reach thousands of people. Separate the Prizes When conducting a charity raffle, consider separating the prizes into big ticket items and small ticket items. Sell two differently priced tickets, making the more expensive tickets for higher priced items like technology or vacation packages. Most raffles have a large selection of smaller items and only one or two big ticket items. This encourages more people to purchase the higher priced tickets, which gives you more money for your charity. One of the easiest ways to collect prizes is to order some pre-packaged gift baskets. You can probably work with an online retailer to choose a few baskets and advertise them as prizes then place the orders after the raffle is over. This makes it easier to send gifts overseas, should you have any international winners. Collecting money for a charity can be difficult, but if you offer fun incentives and great prizes, more people will be willing to shell out some money for the chance to win.
