While most of you run at least one raffle a year, we know that getting prizes can be time-consuming and you're competing against all the other schools in the area, often asking the same donors time and again! And then there's the whole issue of registering as a 'small society lottery', paying the annual licensing fee, arranging what needs to be printed on the tickets to meet legal requirements, etc... That's why we're thrilled to be working with the team behind The BIG PTA Raffle to deliver a national raffle - exclusively for schools - with fantastic prizes, no hassle and great fundraising potential.
Licensed, regulated and trusted!
Experts in charity fundraising and raffle management are working together to provide this great fundraising service. The promoter and licence-holder is Charities Trust - a charity who, during the past decade has distributed over half a billion pounds to more than 50,000 charities. StarVale is the external lottery manager and has more than 17 years' experience of lottery administration. Charities Trust and The BIG PTA Raffle are licensed and regulated by The Gambling Commission under the Gambling Act 2005. For full terms and conditions visit ptaraffle.co.uk.
Charities Trust holds a large society lottery licence, which allows it to promote this national raffle through all school fundraisers. 100% of the profits (75% of ticket sales) will be distributed between participating PTAs and schools.
