Raffle Fundraising Ideas – Easy As 1-2-3

Are you looking for great fundraiser raffle ideas for your school club, student council or church youth group? Here are three unique and profitable ways you can turn your fundraising raffle idea into a big win for everyone!

Remember, picking the right prize for your raffle is the foundation of your potential success. Ideally, you want to get your prize donated, so put your effort into getting the best possible item(s) you can.

Score BIG, Expensive items:


Try to get one of these items by talking to family and friends of people in your group. Chances are, somebody you already know, has a business that can donate. A good rule of thumb is that the more expensive your prize is, the more you can charge for the raffle ticket and the longer amount of time you might need to sell tickets.

Gather A Collection Of Smaller, Less Expensive Items:

restaurant gift cards
movie gift cards
gift certificates for haircuts or other services
hotel packages

The advantage of taking this route is that many local business’s like to support local schools and clubs this way. It’s a great way for them to advertise and do good at the same time. Be sure to thank them publicly in your promotional materials. Once you see what your group was able to collect, create a grand prize package deal, and if you have enough, you can even do a second and third prize package. Raffle tickets may be less expensive, but try to sell volume.

Experiences Are Priceless:

You might also consider an experience. An experience is priceless, something money can’t buy.

For instance, I would pay a lot of money on raffle tickets if I could sit in the grand stands with my son’s high school band. And, I don’t mean next to the band, (I do that already), I mean, smack dab in the middle of the drum section. I want to be in the action.

Bonus Fundraising Raffle Ideas:

Being a Drum Major for a performance
Riding in the homecoming parade
Punting the football or throwing the opening pitch
Being the school mascot
If the mayor of your town is popular, why not see if he or she would be willing to host the winners for lunch at town hall
Have your group do a day of chores, yard work, or packing up someone’s house for moving

The Finishing Touches On Your Fundraising Raffle:

Make sure your tickets look professional and are numbered
Get lots of people to help sell
Ask a parent or close family friend first. It feels good to get a, “yes”, right away
Price your tickets to reflect the “value” of your grand prize
Sell more than one ticket to each person (maybe you can make a deal for three)
Check your state laws on raffles (someone in your group probably has a family member who is an attorney, or ask your teacher for help)
Handle your money carefully – remember, even though they are purchasing a ticket, they are supporting your cause. People will want to know how much you raised
Announce your winner so that your group has credibility for next year

Onе of thе main factors we hаvе nоtісеd thаt ѕераrаtеѕ thе wеll-еxесutеd fundraiser from the flop іѕ thе buzz built whеn уоu fund raise. The excitement аnd buzz thаt уоu create bоth wіthіn уоur grоuр аnd уоur соmmunіtу about уоur grоuр’ѕ fundraiser, wіll tаkе еvеn the most ѕіmрlе fundraising ideas to the nеxt lеvеl.

If a grоuр іѕn’t raising fundѕ uѕіng еаѕу fundrаіѕіng іdеаѕ lіkе Sріnnеrѕ fundrаіѕеr, rаfflеѕ, dіѕсоunt cards, саndlе sales, саrnіvаlѕ, Scratch саrd fundrаіѕіng аnd оthеrѕ – іt is most likely bесаuѕе thе grоuр dіdn’t рut fоrth thеіr bеѕt effort and dіdn’t сrеаtе buzz about the fundraiser. If the group lеаdеr іѕn’t jazzed about thе іt, the mеmbеrѕ of the group won’t bе excited about what уоu аrе dоіng and this drіvеѕ mеmbеrѕ tо nоt dо thе fundrаіѕеr. If реорlе dоn’t раrtісіраtе in thе fundraiser, your group doesn’t rаіѕе fundѕ аnd all of thе еаѕу fundraising іdеаѕ іn thе wоrld can’t ѕаvе іt.

Thеу are always оn thе lооkоut fоr ѕtоrіеѕ. Crеаtе flуеrѕ to роѕt оr hаnd оut dереndіng on the tуре of fundrаіѕеr you are runnіng. Draft emails thаt уоur members саn send оut to their frіеndѕ аnd fаmіlу to gеt thеm еnthuѕеd about уоur fundrаіѕеr. Publісіzе as іf it a саn’t-mіѕѕ еvеnt. Uѕе Fасеbооk and twіttеr and other ѕосіаl mаrkеtіng vеnuеѕ tо ѕhаrе whаt уоu аrе dоіng. Lеt people knоw whо, what, when, whеrе, why аnd mоѕt іmроrtаntlу, hоw thеу can get іnvоlvеd to help dоnаtе tо your grоuр.

You саn ѕеt uр a simple Fасеbооk раgе fоr уоur fundraiser ѕо mеmbеrѕ саn ѕее how сlоѕе уоu аrе to уоur gоаl. A friendly contest wіth a prize fоr thе top еаrnеr is аnоthеr іdеа to іnѕріrе соmреtіtіоn and better rеѕultѕ. Fоllоw uр wіth уоur grоuр mеmbеrѕ durіng the fundrаіѕеr аnd encourage them tо соntіnuе to gеt dоnаtіоnѕ.

raffleticket.com Announces “Impact a Life” College Scholarships 2016

Inviting U.S. college students to apply for $1,000 – $600 – $400 cash scholarship awards.


A – Z Printing, one of the nations leading producer of custom printed raffle tickets through www.raffleticket.com is once again sponsoring “Impact a Life” Scholarship 2016 in order to help defray the expenses associated with the rising cost of college education.

The 2016 scholarship now offers three separate cash grants for eligible students.

The scholarship was established to help defray the expenses associated with the rising cost of college education.

“Because of the success of the 2015 scholarship, we are pleased to award additional scholarship opportunities to motivated students to help in the furthering of their education” said Bruce Hassel, president of A-Z Printing. “Our belief is that achieving a high grade point average should not be the only criteria for determining who needs to be helped.”

For that reason raffleticket.com is offering $1,000, $600, and $400 “Impact a Life” scholarships that will be awarded for the best essays received on a topic described on their scholarship website.

Students can submit their essay entries by e-mail to raffle-tickets-scholarship@raffleticket.com. The deadline for submission is December 31, 2016.

Hassel explained that “selection of winning submissions will be based partially on the number of Facebook and Google+ “likes,” comments, and social interaction an essay posted to our social sites receives.

A full accounting of entry qualifications and criteria can be seen here >>> 2016 scholarship details

“We are really excited about reading some inspiring student essays,” Hassel went on, “but the prospect of awarding a scholarship grant to help a student with college expenses is what really motivates us.”
