Perhaps the simplest of all fundraisers, the 50/50 raffle is easy to run and you don't require very many volunteers to run it.
The 50/50 raffle’s prize is built into the ticket price. The premise is essentially that the total amount earned by ticket sales is split evenly between the raffle winner and the organisation for which it’s been organised.
Because total raffle ticket sales are shared equally by the cause and lucky winner, the 50/50 raffle is not as big an earner as a traditional raffle. However, its return on investment can be good, and it takes far less time, people, and effort to put together.
Ticket prices are typically between £1 – £10, depending on whether your raffle draw is part of a larger fundraising event.
