Top 5 Raffle Prize Ideas
When you are looking for a great fundraising idea, a raffle hits the top of the list.
Your school or non-profit organization can raise thousands of dollars just with one simple raffle.
Successful raffle organizers recruit supporters including individuals and businesses to donate all of the prizes. When all of your prizes are donated there is no money going out the door for expenses except for raffle ticket printing.
You may know that raffles are great fundraisers, but do you still need raffle ideas for the prizes? First of all, put yourself in your potential supporter’s shoes. What type of prize would really get someone interested in buying tickets? Raffle prize ideas should be ones that appeal to a large majority of people.
Top 5 Raffle Prizes That Will Get People’s Attention:
1. Electronic Devices
Electronics are the number one choice for a raffle! Everyone wants the newest gadget, even if they already have an older version. The most popular are the Echo devices, followed by the Kindle Fire and Kindle E-Reader. A new phone would be another idea. Offer the newest editions of products for your raffle. You could also make a package of several Echo or Kindle devices or a combination. Or, have several prizes levels.
2. Gift Baskets
Gift baskets are very popular prizes. These are especially a great choice during any holiday season. You could also include a gift card with your basket. Some of my favorite gift basket raffle ideas include:
3. Seasonal Products
Seasonal products make a great raffle prize idea. Choose something that lots of people need or would love to own to help with seasonal outdoor work or fun. They will be happy to take a chance on winning! Have your raffle at the beginning of the season or just before it begins. For Fall, a few suggestions are: leaf blower, Fall door wreath, coffee maker, crock pot, s’mores maker, and football fan items. Put your heads together and think of something people in your area would love at this time of year!
Favorite Seasonal Pick
A big screen TV is a popular raffle prize idea. Just about everyone would love to win a new TV! Choose any TV that suits your budget. This is sure to be a winning raffle item!
Roundtrip Airfare, a package deal, a cruise, hotel stays, even airline miles all make great raffle prizes. Most people love to travel and the biggest obstacle is usually cost. Now if they win this raffle, they’ll just have to take some time off work and go.
With a little creativity and persistence, you’ll be able to get some great prizes for your raffle!

Don’t Forget the Raffle Tickets!
If you’re having a raffle, be sure and buy plenty of tickets. Raffle tickets are especially made as a double with matching numbers. The customer keeps one ticket, you keep the other, and match the tickets to determine the winner. The ticket you keep will usually have a space for the customer to fill out their name and address, if the winner is to be announced at a later date. They are available in a wide variety of color choices and styles. Some are better than others, so be sure and read descriptions and comments to make sure you’re getting the one that best suits your needs. I’ve included a couple of choices below:
