In short, you are a legitimate charity and you purchase a website
Yes, we have the ability to do that. Most charities will add a service charge between 3% to 10%. Our research shows that adding a Service Charge does not have a significant impact on your raffle orders. Most customers are used to a service charge on tickets and it is a great way to offset your fundraising expenses.
About 80% of Charities add a service charge.
Sure, we will setup your site and help you make adjustments to meet your requirements. We will have it so you can do some test orders and review everything. You simply tell us when you want to take your raffle live and then you can share your website address.
Our virtual Charity Raffle Service will send the payment from your customer directly to the Charity Organization Credit Card Processor. When our system receives the authorization back from the Credit Card Processor the appropriate amount of raffle tickets are generated. The customer will see an order confirmation page on the website with their raffle tickets and also a receipt it emailed to them. What is presented is a little different depending on if it is a typical raffle or a basket raffle.
We cannot do that. A fundraiser and a raffle/charity raffles have different regulations. In almost every Jurisdiction in the US there are specific rules regarding payments for a raffle ticket. In some States, the Charity is required to have a separate bank account where the payments are deposited to avoid the possibility of co-mingling of raffle funds. It is your and the charity’s responsibility to follow the regulations for your location.
