What are Online Sweepstakes for Charities?

Online sweepstakes are giveaways that allow nonprofits to raise funds. Charity sweepstakes give donors a chance to win a prize or prizes, often in exchange for a donation. With sweepstakes, a free method of entry must be offered in addition to donation-based entries. We often see organizations use their own terms like draw, drawing, or giveaway to refer to their sweeps campaign.

If you’re looking for a fundraising campaign to grow your audience and engage supporters, running charity sweepstakes can be a great solution for your organization. Nonprofits, charities, schools, and businesses can run online sweepstakes campaigns.

Sharing Rewards for Social Referrals

Sharing Rewards for Social Referrals

Sharing rewards is a feature of our sweepstakes platform that helps organizations attract new donors and increase donations by motivating your supporters to promote your experience. As a reward for sharing and bringing new donors to your campaign, supporters can receive free bonus entries into your online sweepstakes. Supporters can earn entries just for posting to Twitter or LinkedIn or when their friends make donations from their custom links.

Charity Raffles vs. Sweepstakes – What’s the Difference?

Charity raffles and sweepstakes have one main thing in common: they are giveaways that offer donors a chance to win a prize or prizes. Charity sweepstakes generally have fewer geographic regulatory restrictions than raffles, and entries can be sold nationally or even internationally. When organizations aim to extend outreach to a broader audience, charity sweepstakes can often have a further reach.

Charity Raffles vs Sweepstakes

While sweepstakes allow organizations to reach a vast audience because of the lessened geographical restrictions, a free method of entry must be offered in addition to donation-based entries. This is not true with raffles and is the main difference between charity sweepstakes and raffles. For this reason, sweepstakes are often not considered gambling or gaming in the same way that raffles are and can be utilized in some states and regions where raffles are prohibited.

Successful Fundraising Sweepstakes Essentials – The Prizes

When you run a sweepstake, one of the first and most important decisions is what you want to give away as a prize. Appealing prizes make successful charity sweepstakes. Popular prize ideas include cars or other vehicles, vacation packages, house and garden makeovers, and cash prizes.

Though you always want to ask for donations first, don’t limit your fundraising sweepstakes to a donated item. This is a mistake that many organizations make, as they want to keep all of the sweepstakes proceeds. Yet organizations can raise far more money with desirable, high-value prizes. If your school or organization wants to raise $10,000 or even more on a fundraising sweepstakes, you will likely need to purchase the grand prize. This is easy to implement with our unique travel packages.

Sweepstakes Platform Pricing

With DoJiggy, your organization selects the best pricing option for your goals. You can select to pay a percentage of funds raised or allow supporters to place a tip to cover platform fees. In this way, you can run a charity sweepstakes completely free of charge and keep all of the funds raised. Note that supporters who select to tip on free sweepstakes receive extra chances to win. The sweepstakes software platform manages all of this.


There are no platform fees when you use our free pricing model. Optional tips from your supporters allow us to offer the platform free of charge. Donors receive an incentive of entries into the drawing for tipping, and your organization runs the fundraising campaign for free.


Percent pricing is a great alternative to suit corporate and some organizational needs better. There are no upfront costs, and fees are applied to each credit card transaction. This pricing model lets you decide if your organization or supporters will cover the cost.

Stripe payment processing fees apply.
