Introducing: Mitch-Stuart’s Raffle Packages
September 02, 2015
We’re excited to introduce a new way to incorporate Mitch-Stuart, Inc.’s catalog of once-in-a-lifetime travel opportunities into your non-profit’s fundraising plans. Now, along with adding excitement and the allure of a luxury vacation to your gala charity auctions, or selling multiple trips to the same destination via a “buy it now” option, we can also help you reach out to donors and supporters of all ages, income levels and even tastes with a raffle – using our travel packages as grand prizes!
With a raffle, non-profits can get a larger percentage of their bases to “buy in” to supporting a cause, whether it is in person at an event, by mail or online. Instead of trying to get big bids out of a subset of your donors, organizations can get everyone to participate.
So, why create a fundraising raffle?
It allows supporters who may be able to attend a gala, but not be fiscally able to bid on a silent or live auction item, a chance to participate and give what they can. It can be easy to get caught up in the big ticket, big bid items at a fundraiser, but 100 people giving $20 is the same as one person giving 2,000.
It can be done in conjunction with an event, or separate from one. Now, charity auction fundraising doesn’t have to happen once a year. Raffle tickets can be purchased by mail, online or in person, and it doesn’t need to involve catering and theme decorations.
It’s FUN! The anticipation, the chance to win, the dreaming of what one could do on a Caribbean cruise or a trip to the Super Bowl … a raffle can add excitement to any auction event and get the whole room involved. Raffles help maximize results by getting people engaged while donating to your cause. They can even involve large target audiences like family, friends, neighbors and co-workers, as gala attendees often buy tickets for those not in attendance.
Raffles can raise incredible amounts of money for your organization. You can easily raise $10,000 and, when tied to galas and events, you can exceed $25,000 and raise as much as $100,000 or more… all at no-risk!
It’s easy. Give us your price range, and we can give you a list of trips that would be hits with your crowd. You can raffle off one trip or give your winner a choice of three different adventures, which will attract a broader audience and sell more tickets.
There are as many variations of a charity raffle as there are travel opportunities in our catalog to choose as prizes. For more information on this exciting new opportunity, reach out to a Mitch-Stuart travel expert today!
