A "winner's choice" raffle lets you offer a selection of unique Experiences for your grand prize winner to choose from.
A successful fundraising raffle must offer a prize with enough perceived value to entice supporters to purchase a lot of tickets at a higher price point than your typical $1 carnival raffle ticket.
We designed this fundraising raffle guide to help you from start to finish, including Word templates for raffle tickets and even some promotional email templates that can be used with ConstantContact or MailChimp.
The guide covers the following steps for setting up your raffle:
- Set Fundraising Goal.
Setting a goal is crucial for establishing a ticket price and figuring out how many tickets you will need to sell.
- Reserve Experiences.
Deciding which Experiences to offer can be done in a single meeting, and reserving through Winspire takes less than 5 minutes.
- Set Ticket Price.
Your raffle ticket price needs to be high enough to raise a substantial sum of money, but low enough to entice almost anyone. In the guide, we'll show you how to work back from your fundraising goal to establish your ticket price.
- Create Tickets & Flyers.
We've created ticket templates for raffle tickets, flyers and emails. The raffle template is double-sided and consists of 10 tickets per sheet, with areas for you to enter your own organization’s logo and other details about your raffle.
- Sell Raffle Tickets.
