How to Increase Raffle Proceeds


The point of a raffle is to raise money.

There are many deserving charities, from local organizations to those who work worldwide, and the end result of any raffle is to contribute to a specific cause. While raising awareness of that cause is an important side effect of any charity event, the main goal is to collect as much money as possible to donate to that organization.

Here are a few ways to increase raffle proceeds:

  • Two of the best ways to increase raffle proceeds are to order custom raffle tickets as well as sell raffle tickets online. Ordering custom printed raffle tickets allows you to customize them to your fundraiser’s theme and organization’s brand. Selling raffle tickets online enables you to cast a wider net, which correlates directly with more raffle ticket sales!
  • A raffle tied into an event or show can also give you the option of charging a fee for admission, with the money from the door going to cover costs, thus freeing up all the money from the raffle to go towards the charity. You can also get creative with this option by charging people a can of food or something similar to get in.
  • Having multiple raffles is also a good option, both by increasing the number of items for people to buy tickets for and by varying the types of items to draw more interest. Here’s an example of a fundraiser which found success with two raffles within one event!
  • While giving away prizes with a drawing might be why people are there, selling items connected to the benefit can raise additional funds. For example, if your fundraising event has an environmental theme, then, in addition to raffling off “green” prizes, you could also sell different yet thematically similar items, perhaps at reduced prices.

These are just a few of the many ways you can increase the proceeds from your fundraiser. As with the raffle itself, you’re only limited by your imagination!
