Why a lottery is good for fundraising

Fundraising can be a real headache. There’s paperwork, planning, deciding what method to use. Then there’s the monetary outlay of fundraising, whether it’s the hiring of a space, prizes for a raffle, promotional costs, etc. And after all of that you still have no real idea how much money you’ll earn for your charity, with the risk of actually making a loss. This headache can easily be removed by running a society lottery. This involves followers of your charity paying a certain amount (usually £1 per line/go) per week.

Why a lottery?

With a society lottery you can generate a constant cash flow. Using this constant cash flow you are able to plan ways to spend your money efficiently. This allows you to comprehensively budget for your team and develop a plan to spend your budget where the team needs it the most. Therefore, your team can continue to flourish. However, whilst lotteries can be beneficial for charities, sports team, societies, etc., this does not mean they are easy to run. There are certain rules and regulations that need to be met. The draw needs to be done weekly, again, to the standards set by the Gambling Commission. Player databases need to be maintained, money needs to be handled, prizes calculated, etc. In short, whilst running a lottery can prove to be extremely beneficial for charities and sport teams. It takes a lot of work to run one.
