Lucky Ticket is a digital platform which empowers charities to convert gifts, donated and purchased items into online fundraising raffles. Supporters can buy tickets to win prizes whilst contributing to the causes closest to their hearts. Lucky Ticket allows a direct transaction between those buying the tickets and the benefiting charity.
Using Lucky Ticket is super easy! Sign up, create your raffle, share with your audience and we’ll do the rest!
Register and verify your charity using our simple 3-step validation process.
Create A Raffle
Upload pictures of the prize, tell your audience all about the item and the cause it's supporting. Set your price and number of tickets available (you can even put in a reserve) and away you go!
Spread The Word
Share your raffle with your audiences through email, social media pages and newsletters. Lucky Ticket will even give you a helping hand.
We Do The Rest
We automatically pick a winning ticket at random and email the charity at the end of the raffle. We can also automatically message the winner but this is up to you (we know you may want to stream a live “draw”)!
Money, Money, Money!
We’re completely transparent with the money side of things. When you’re creating a raffle you will see exactly how the fees breakdown and your audience see the same when they buy their tickets. Every time a ticket is purchased, our payments partner Stripe will automatically deduct their fee, our fee and the Community Pledge (don’t worry, we explain this below), before sending the balance directly to you. We provide monthly reporting so you can see the fundraising breakdown of your raffles, as well as real time payment tracking via the My Charity page.
This is something we’re really excited to share with charities. Click here to learn a little more.
What is the Community Pledge?
The concept of the Lucky Ticket Community Pledge is very similar to a referral scheme; one that rewards the charity that first introduced you to Lucky Ticket as you go on to explore and support other charities’ fundraising raffles
What’s the thinking behind the Community Pledge?
At Lucky Ticket we understand the value of community and helping one another. The concept of "charities helping charities" is something we have built into our DNA and in turn this has brought about the creation of our Lucky Ticket Community Pledge
We like to think of it as a two-way street with the Community Pledge enabling charities to continue to fundraise from the audience they introduce to the Lucky Ticket platform, regardless of which other charities' raffles their supporters go on to buy tickets for
How much is the Community Pledge?
5% from every raffle ticket sold goes to the Community Pledge
Who receives the 5% from the Community Pledge?
The charity that first introduces you to Lucky Ticket receives the Community Pledge 5% from the very first raffle you enter. If you then go on to explore and enter other charities’ raffles, 5%of every subsequent ticket you buy will go back to the first charity that introduced you to Lucky Ticket.
