In times of social distancing and beyond the movement is absolutely towards "Virtual" and "Digital Transformation."
RafflesNow readily exhibits both of these qualities in an easy and friendly to use app. Don't let Covid slow you and your organization down. Start fundraising with the latest fundraising-based tool; RafflesNow - The 50/50 Fundraising Raffle App.
RafflesNow is not just an app...it's a full on stand-alone fundraising solution/platform that perfectly compliment the virtual and digital trend movement.
Fundraising is always challenging. Fundraising during COVID-19 is even more challenging
A virtual raffle can happen anywhere, is easy, and just about any nonprofit can run and host it! It works very similarly to a traditional fundraising raffle, but everything happens online via the RafflesNow mobile app, so it’s much easier to manage, and nobody will need to go door-to-door / person-to-person selling raffle tickets.
So recently we here at RafflesNow noticed that wikiHow posted an extensive "How-To" article about raffling online. The online article is titled "How to Do an Online Raffle" and was posted on October 17, 2019. Here is the direct link to it: www.wikihow.com/Do-an-Online-Raffle
This article was:
Where is this blog post going?
And why is it important enough for RafflesNow to share it here on the RafflesNow BLOG and with the general public?
Now don't get us wrong here! Just to be clear...we are not knocking wikiHow with our "Wiki What" post. We are simply stating that there is now a better, simpler, and more convenient way to host raffles.
A way that wiki most likely is not aware of.
The answer to both of these questions is that wikiHow's article as written is both
good & bad.
It's important for us to note...
That we here at RafflesNow 100% are all for the promotion & education of fundraising via raffles!
With that said, deep down inside we are thankful for their resources, contributions,
and the time & effort that they put forth in
aiding with the helping of spreading the good word on raffling.
Now let us elaborate! (This explanation is a 1-Minute read)
So overall their article is very good with respect to the fact that it does answer and/or provide a lot of the answers and insight on "How to Do an Online Raffle."
The problem is...

This was an important Q&A based question about raffling that was recently posted on QUORA:
What is the best app or online website to do a raffle draw and pick a winner?
Great question…one that I am happy to assist answering for you. My answer is RafflesNow - The Raffle App:
RafflesNow - Raffle. Anywhere.
To answer this question effectively I would need a little bit more information. I say this because there are a couple of considerations here. Not all raffle apps are created equally, meaning some are much more robust and feature rich than others. With that said, RafflesNow is the most robust, most complete mobile Raffle App on the market as it is 100% fully automated. Another factor is your intended raffle type…50/50 cash raffle or a giveaway (prize) based raffle. This are two very different raffle types and have different backend requirements, so no singular app and/or website currently caters to both simultaneously.
If you’re simply looking for a simple RNG - Random Number Generator, you can source such by typing the same in the search field of the app stores. You can also search keyword “Raffles” and other basic RNG based apps will show up. From there simply pick the one that best fits your need.

From 19th century novels to the big screen and luxury hotels, take a look at all things "raffles".
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.
