Zaffo.com Beta is the UK’s first digital platform created to help charities and good causes fundraise through online raffles.
Created by Capen, the UK’s only specialist digital External Lottery Manager, the website helps any charitable organisation create online raffles, sell tickets and manage campaigns. Zaffo raffles are quick and easy to use and completely free to set up. Organisations who already run traditional paper raffles can combine their offline sales with online sales generated through Zaffo.
Simon Rydings, Co-Founder and CEO of Capen says “We’re really proud to help smaller charitable organisations - many of whom are doing amazing work with virtually no budget - get their raffles online and reach their supporters in an innovative and dynamic way.”
To celebrate the Beta Launch of Zaffo.com, Capen has included a special bonus prize of a Spa Break for two lucky winners. Players who support any organisation on Zaffo.com, are automatically also entered into the bonus prize draw until the 31st December 2016.
Zaffo.com operates at the highest level of compliance, so good causes can be confident their supporters’ data is completely secure. The platform is fully mobile optimised and social media friendly, allowing any organisation to engage audiences otherwise beyond their reach, particularly younger supporters.
Catriona Sinclair at The Royal Institution says, “The Royal Institution is delighted to be able to run our Golden Ticket Raffle with support from the team at Zaffo, as an independent charity we need the support of everyone to be able to continue our national and International science education programmes.”
There are fantastic opportunities to fundraise through zaffo.com right now, including #GivingTuesday and Christmas campaigns. Capen is inviting voluntary organisations to join zaffo.com to help shape the service while in its Beta phase. All you need is a Small Society Lottery License from your Local Authority.
Any organisation can sign up at zaffo.com/sign-up. There are absolutely no setup costs and 90% of ticket proceeds go straight to the good cause. It truly is an exciting time for charitable organisations to step into digital fundraising - and Zaffo.com makes it easy.
