AVDC has announced a new fundraising initiative for the voluntary sector in the form of a lottery. Here's the official spiel:
The Vale Lottery — an exciting new way to fundraise!
We are delighted to tell you that we are launching an online Vale Lottery, which will offer good causes like yours the opportunity to raise vital funds.
Community groups are being invited to set up their own page on the Vale Lottery website, free of charge. Your supporters will then be able to buy tickets at £1, and 50p from every sale will go to your cause. This is substantially higher than the national lottery which gives just 28p in the pound.
We've already done the hard work, getting the necessary licences in place and you will also be provided with free marketing materials, including posters bespoke to your organisation. The process of setting up the web page will be easy but support will be given where required.
We are doing this in partnership with an External Lottery Management company who are local to Buckinghamshire and have developed the software, which means supporters can join up on all online devices, be that their pc, mobile phone or tablet. For the supporters themselves, there's a huge incentive of a £20,000 jackpot, as well as a number of smaller prizes.
There are so many worthwhile causes in the Vale and we see this as a great opportunity to support them, requiring much less time and effort from volunteers than some of the more traditional fundraising methods. All you'll need to do is sign up and be pro-active in spreading the word to your members and encourage supporters.
To find out more, meet the partner company we're working with and some of the organisations already signed up, please come along to our launch event at our Gateway Offices, on Monday October 5 at 6:30pm. Refreshments will be provided.
