Could your church use a new organ?  How would the addition of new computers benefit your school? Or perhaps your school’s marching band’s been invited to play at the Rose Bowl Parade?

How will you raise the money for these worthwhile causes?

That’s Easy — Have a raffle!

Follow these seven steps to hold a successful and profitable raffle for your church, school, organization, or non-profit:

  • Organize a Committee

Assemble other people in your organization that are committed to making your fundraising efforts a success.

  • Assign Duties

Pick a chairperson who will oversee the event. Delegate the tasks necessary such as getting the tickets printed and finding great prizes to award.

  • What Will You Raffle?

Before you have your tickets printed, you’ll want to decide on what the prizes are and how and where you will get them.

  • Solicit Prize Donations

It’s obvious that there will be more money left for your organization in the end if you don’t have to purchase prizes. Ask local merchants to donate goods and services.

  • Have Tickets Printed

It’s easy, it’s quick, and it’s inexpensive.

  • Start Selling Tickets!

Recruit as many people in your organization as you can to sell tickets for your worthy cause.

  • Hold the Drawing

Time for the big day! Draw the raffle winners and award your prizes.

That was fun.

Enjoy the music from your church’s new organ. Relish in the educational benefits your students will reap with their new computers.

And we’ll see you at the Rose Bowl Parade!
