Scratch Card Fundraiser

A Scratch Card Fundraiser is a brilliant way of getting people to donate to your cause and rewarding them for their support at the same time!

It's a really quick and easy fundraiser...

You order a bunch of Scratch Cards that you hand out to your fundraising team.

Each card contains 30 or 60 "scratch" dots that have hidden values under them (From free to $2.50 for 60 dot Cards, and $1 to $5 for 30 dot Cards).

Each Scratch Card will then raise $100 for your cause!

Each card is also accompanied by a bunch of coupon books/sheets that equal the amount of dots on the card, which will then be given to supporters as a reward for participating.

You Then Approach Potential Donors...

Your Fundraising Team then goes out to friends, family, acquaintances, old supporters, the public, etc. and gets them to participate in the fundraiser by scratching a dot from the Card.

The amount that is then displayed under that dot is the amount that the participant has to donate.

In reward of their participation and donation they then receive a free coupon sheet, providing that extra bit of motivation to get people to take part.

Simple, quick and fun!

Here come some success tips...

Scratch Card Fundraiser Success Tips:

Although this is a really simple fundraiser to put in place you will still need to be organized. Plan it properly from the beginning to make it as profitable as possible.

And how do you make it profitable? By making sure that all Scratch Cards are completely scratched out and donated to!

Here are some pointers for a profitable fundraiser...  

  • Order the right amount of Cards. If you have too many, you'll lower your profit margins... if you have too few, you'll lose out on potential donations. A good guideline is to have one Scratch Card per Team member.
  • Motivate your Fundraising Team with an incentive prize for completing their Scratch Cards.
  • Teach your Fundraising Team how to get people to participate. They should...
  • 1. Smile...
  • 2. Explain what the fundraiser is for and how it works...
  • 3. And prompt the potential supporter to take part!
  • Then you need to keep accountability on donations taken...

Donation Collections:

This is really important!

You need to keep your fundraising team accountable for the funds they raise, and collect those funds from them on a weekly or daily basis.

The shorter they have those donations on them, the less likely they will be to accidentally spend the money or lose it.


Finally, once you've finished your successful Scratch Card Fundraiser, you should celebrate with your Fundraising Team.

Have a small "get together", dinner or barbeque, and thank them all for their participation.

Having a fundraising celebration is a great way of showing your appreciation but it is also great for building SPIRIT!
