Raffles are a way of raising money by selling tickets for a chance to win a prize. These tickets are then drawn at random to choose the winner.
Raffle’s date back to the beginning of human civilization. Even before tickets could be printed and way before you could hold an electronic drawing, The Old Testament states that Moses used a lottery to award land West of the Jordan to his people. Since then ancient Babylonians, Egyptians, Greeks, and Romans all ran some sort of raffles for themselves and their people.
The idea of using raffles to raise funds caught on strong after these pioneers first introduced raffles to their cultures. In today’s world, Raffle Ready has created an easy way to run raffles, while generating maximum profits.
Raffles usually require a lot of man power to process all of the donor/ticket data, however. For non-profit organizations, raffles are often the most effective fundraising method because everyone likes the chance to win a prize, while helping a good cause. However; many nonprofits struggle with a lack of time and resources needed to manage a raffle, that is why nonprofits across the country are turning to Raffle software programs to automate their raffle fundraiser. Next time your organization is considering running a raffle, calculate your complete raffle costs and call Raffle Ready to see how they can help.
