How to Hold a Raffle Auction Fund Raiser


Need some help raising money for your childs school, church or football little league? Here's a fundraiser that's sure to be fun while generating those much needed dollars.

Things You'll Need

  • Facility (indoor or outdoor)
  • Tables
  • portable microphone
  • sound system
  • cashbox
  • two part tickets
  • items to auction/raffle (donated)
  • flyers
  • plenty of volunteers
  • Permit/License (possibly)

Getting Started

Decide on time to hold the event. Keep in mind that you can hold it alone, or partner with something that may already be going on. For example, during half time at the high school football game, or part of the church picnic.

Find items that can be donated. Go to hotels, flower shops, pizza and burger joints, larger corporations like walmart, car wash services, ect. Let the business know what organization you are having the fund raiser for, and what your goals are. Items don't have to be new. You'll be surprised what you can find in your neighbors garage, or your aunts attic.

Make up fliers for the event. Include date, time, location. Tease the reader with some of the items that are going to be auctioned of. Put the organization name on the flier and contact information.

Tips & Warnings

  • Try to have enough volunteers to handle the table and the money. It's better to be extra prepared.
  • You may want the volunteers handling money to wear aprons with pockets to place the money once a bid is made. Have another volunteer walk around periodically and collect the money to take to the cash box.
  • Try to secure as many high quality donations as possible. You can raise more money this way.
