Q. Can entrants make more than one donation on a prize draw?
Yes, each donation they make will get them one entry into the prize draw. Multiple donations will increase their chances of winning, but each entrant can only win one prize.
Q. Can entrants donate more than the minimum amount in a single donation?
Yes, but a single donation of any amount greater than the minimum amount will only get them one entry into the prize draw. Unless you specify multiple entries for larger donations as your rewards (e.g. £5 = 1 entry, £10 = 3 entries, £20 = 9 entries etc)
Q. Can entrants donate without entering the prize draw?
Yes, they can simply donate directly to the campaign by not selecting the “1 entry to win...” reward option.
Q. How do I pick a winner?
This is your call. A simple way would be to download your list of entrants, number them in a spreadsheet (remembering to duplicate names of entrants who have bought more than one ticket) and then use a random number generator (like this one) to pick the winners. Or you could print off the names and film yourself picking them out of a hat if you like!
Q. Can entrants enter the prize draw without donating?
Yes, they can enter for free by post. See individual draw terms and conditions for details of how to do this.
Q. Do I need to set up my own Terms & Conditions?
Yes, as some might be specific to the draw that you're running. Take a look at our suggested T&Cs below which you can adjust for your own draw.
Q. How much does it cost?
