There are so many ways that you can raise money for your charity, and some ideas are better than others. When hosting a fundraiser, especially for a small group or small organization, it’s best to try to keep things as simple as possible. Cost is always an issue too—you just don’t want to have to invest a lot of money in your fundraising efforts. So, for keeping things easy and cheap, a raffle can be a great way to go. Here are some good reasons to host a charity raffle.
1. It’s easy for participants. As far as raffles go, it’s about as easy as it can get for your potential donors. All they have to do purchase tickets to try to win the prize. It’s a great way to get people excited about your organization and they love the chance to potentially win prizes.
2. It’s a great way to get local businesses involved. Small businesses love the publicity that they get from participating in a charity raffle. It looks good for their reputation, and they can quickly and easily donate gift cards or products that are inexpensive for them and low maintenance.
3. It can be a great moneymaker. One thing that is always key when coming up with fundraising ideas is, will it make money? Yes, raffles can make money. Even at $5 a ticket, the profit margin is huge so you can rack up the funds for your organization.
4. You can create an entire event around one raffle. An event like this can also be a great social event. People love to gather and have fun together and raffles can create more awareness about your organization if you make it a huge shindig. Get creative and turn your fundraising event into a raffle and game night and people will want it to be an annual thing.
