Raffles are very effective fundraising tools: They're easy to enter and everyone understand how they work. In short, people like and are willing to participate in raffles. This fact alone makes them a good choice for any organization. What makes a raffle even better is the prizes that it offers, and one of the most successful kinds of prizes is a car. Yep, a car. A grand-daddy prize that lures people in.
Getting a car donated, is hard work. But thats how you get value, right? The work to get a prize in your raffle usually maps well with how your potential entrants will perceive its value.
The path to getting a car donated isn't going to be the same for everyone, but, here's some advice:
If a dealer isn't willing to give you a car outright, try angling for a profit sharing deal. Here's a typical one: The dealer will keep a chunk of the profits, say 20-30%, and then you get this rest. Dealers are warm to this idea because they get some great marketing in and some cash as well. However, the marketing aspect goes for any kind of deal: always stress that you will be marketing the dealer's brand to your entrants. As much as much as we glorify altruism, dealers are businesses, and they need to have some skin in the game.
We recommend you skip paper tickets for your Car Raffle.
When we run our raffles, we always skip physical tickets. When you're selling tickets online, your customers don't need a physical ticket stub, so why even bother making any?
Instead, Raffle Creator provides our special Raffle Drawer, which will take all of your entrants and pick winners for all of your prizes. Quick and easy.
If you still want to print paper tickets, we provide a one-click system to do so. No futzing around with paper raffle ticket templates in Word or Excel.Start Selling Your Raffle Online
