Raffle Rules and Regulations

We’re only selling 1,200 tickets – so buy your tickets today!

The Center for Family Resources is a non-profit organization moving people to self-sufficiency through financial stabilization, housing, and education.  Learn more about the Center for Family Resources.

Your ticket purchase benefits the Center for Family Resources, allowing you to help empower families.



The Center for Family Resources wants you to know that this raffle has expenses associated with it, which means that not all of the money taken in by THE CENTER FOR FAMILY RESOURCES for a raffle ticket goes directly to THE CENTER FOR FAMILY RESOURCES for its charitable and educational purposes. Some of these expenses are not subject to our choice.

Variable expenses are costs that we incur for each ticket sold. This may include credit card payment processing fees.

The Raffle also has fixed expenses. These expenses are sums that we spend regardless of how many tickets we sell. Here are some examples of other expenses used to implement the raffle:

1.     Advertising

2.     Social Media campaigns

3.     Local live on-site events

4.     Printing of marketing material

5.     Website development

One very important point you should understand: No one affiliated with The Center for Family Resources benefits in any personal, direct way from this raffle. There are no hidden fees, commissions, bonuses, incentives or anything like that.  A portion of funds raised may be used to pay staff salaries, which is a necessary part of pursuing our mission; but the Center for Family Resources Board members, ordinary members and volunteers are all unpaid.

One other point regarding the cost of the raffle, the marketing and advertising being done to promote the raffle is also promoting the Center for Family Resources and our brand. Even though we are trying to sell raffle tickets we are reaching many people who have never heard of us.  This will bring additional opportunities for them to get involved in other ways in the future helping us further our mission.

For further details, including any restrictions or caveats, see the Legal Details section of the website.
