Raffles are a superb way of boosting income for charities of all shapes and sizes, and taking them online of course has the added benefit of widening the audience considerably.
At CommittedGiving, we specialise in helping charities implement successful online raffles.
Whether you’re seeking an end-to-end solution from the creation of branded pages that integrate seamlessly with the rest of your website to the management of sign ups and payments, or just an element of this process, we’ll work with you to meet your requirements.
East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices (EACH) is a great example of a charity that came to us seeking the complete service.
“Being unable to guarantee with our old site that we wouldn’t take any credit card payments for raffle tickets had limited us to selling them offline, so ensuring this wouldn’t happen with our new microsite was the most important aspect of its development for us. Thanks to CommittedGiving, we can now take our raffles online with confidence.”
While the charity ran successful offline raffles, gambling regulations meant they had been unable to offer an online version through their website because it lacked the facility to differentiate between credit and debit card payments. This is a legal requirement with credit card payments banned for all gambling-related activity, including raffles.
But, with a new website planned there was an opportunity to remedy this. The challenge for EACH was finding a supplier that could not only help with the set up and management of an online raffle, but which could also ensure that no credit card payments would be taken.
CommittedGiving stepped in to resolve these issues. You can read the full story of how this was achieved in our downloadable pdf here.
