The Charitable Gaming Act, signed by Governor Andrew Cuomo, is a step towards reforming antiquated laws surrounding raffling. The bill reverses past laws that prevented online raffle sales and will help groups such as fire departments, Rotary Clubs, public libraries, Boys and Girls Clubs, and many more to capitalize the amounts of funds raised for non-profit causes.
For the time being, New York organizations hosting an event on RafflesNow will only be able to conduct a raffle between participants within the state. As New York takes steps towards modernizing state rules for charitable gaming, RafflesNow will continue to provide a quick and straightforward platform for New Yorkers to take advantage of their new fundraising liberties.
Welcome to RafflesNow, New York residents!
In today’s world, even Girl Scouts have taken to the internet to sell their cookies rather than ringing doorbells in the neighborhood. Thanks to the internet, the “neighborhood” has expanded to include friends and family from other towns, states, and countries.
To make the most of your fundraising, why not take your event online and reach a much larger audience? RafflesNow was developed with the intention of simplifying fundraising so that organizations can raise money efficiently without having to mobilize an army of volunteers.
Who can raffle? Anyone!
Any type of organization looking to fundraise for a cause is welcome to start a raffle on RafflesNow. Including, but not limited to:
School clubs and teams
Youth sports/travel teams
Boys Scouts/Girl Scouts
No more disrupting fans at a game or trying to catch shoppers as they hurry out of the grocery store on a busy Saturday morning. RafflesNow makes it easy to purchase tickets anywhere and at any time. And with electronic purchasing, no one will miss out on the opportunity to participate because they don’t have cash on them.
Instead of going door-to-door or hanging up posters on every street corner, volunteers can promote your group’s 50/50 Raffle via social media. Not only is this a more effective way to get people participating in your raffle, it also saves time and resources that your organization can allot to other tasks.
Mobile devices have changed the way we do most things, so stay up to date and let RafflesNow help bring your raffling into the 21st century.

RafflesNow makes raffling easy, but there are always ways to step up your game and have a more profitable fundraiser. Follow these tips to see your cash prize grow:
1. Introduce yourself
Provide a group name and photo along with a short description to set yourselves apart from other organizations on the RafflesNow App.
2. Give details about your raffle
Let participants know what the proceeds of the raffle will help benefit and why they should buy more tickets to support your cause.
3. Give your raffle a wide window for the “Start” and “End” dates
Your raffle doesn’t have to take place strictly during an event like a soccer game or a 5k run. Start your raffle early so tickets can be sold leading up to the event, this way the cash prize will grow larger and both parties will receive more.
4. Spread the word early and often
Press the “Share” button to tell friends and family about your raffle. Post to social media or send out email blasts to reach a broader audience.
5. Follow your raffle
Keep an eye on the progress of your raffle by pressing the “follow” button and watch the cash prize grow.
