Keep 70% of the $ you collect

You sell CharityMania Tickets (typically for $20) and keep 70% of the money you collect. Ticket holders receive premium digital music downloads and they are entered into one of our exciting sweepstakes.

You keep 70% of the money you collect from ticket sales (note that some fundraisers % can vary). The profit you make per sale is yours to keep and you can spend it right away.

3. Pay your invoice-30%

Pay only for the tickets you sell. If you don’t sell a ticket, you don’t pay for it.

Pay only for the tickets you sell

At the start of the game, you are invoiced for the tickets you sold to cover the costs of the sweepstakes. Some games vary, but generally you owe a $6 fee per sold ticket which covers the costs of the music downloads, the management of the sweepstakes, and any prize money your game cards may win. You can pay this fee in one lump sum by electronic funds transfer (or by check if necessary).

4. Winners get paid $$$!

We calculate the winning game cards and work with you to pay the winners.

Winners and prize money

CharityMania calculates the winning sweepstakes game cards at the end of each week and tells you which of your cards are winners. We then send you the prize money (via electronic funds transfer) so that you can send it to your winners with a personalized letter from your organization. We also post the winning card numbers on the website so everyone can see if they’ve won.

CharityMania Ticket and Game Card Details

Any organization can raise between $500 to $50,000 with our wildly profitable, raffle-like fundraisers based on the excitement of professional and college sports.

CharityStudio Music Downloads

Music Downloads and Sweepstakes Game Cards… a winning combination!

To raise money, you sell CharityMania Tickets for $25 and keep 70% of the money you collect (we also have tickets that sell for $20, $10, and $5). The CharityMania Ticket (i.e. the stub at the top) contains an access code that allows the buyer to download over $25 worth of fantastic digital music from our CharityStudio. Beneath this ticket, a promotional sweepstakes game card gives the recipient a chance to win $1000s in prize money! Check out all of our unique fundraisers based on your favorite sports.

Why sell music downloads? Why not just use the sweepstakes game cards?

There is a legal difference between a sweepstakes and a raffle. In a raffle, people pay money for a raffle ticket that gives them a chance to win prizes. Only specific types of organizations can conduct a raffle and states strictly regulate how the raffles can operate. A sweepstakes is not a raffle. A sweepstakes is a promotion that provides extra incentive for people to buy a product or service that you are selling. The sweepstakes must have a ‘no purchase necessary’ method of entry. In a CharityMania fundraiser, the sweepstakes game cards are for promotion only and are not sold directly. Every time someone buys a CharityMania Ticket, they purchase over $5 to $30 worth of premium music downloads (depending on the price of the CharityMania ticket) from our CharityStudio. The sweepstakes game card is the promotion that provides a great extra incentive for a person to support your cause.

Legally, our Sweepstakes Game Cards work much like the game pieces in the Monopoly sweepstakes at McDonald’s. You can not buy a Monopoly game piece directly. Instead, you purchase things like hamburgers and drinks and receive the game pieces for free. The Monopoly game pieces are a promotion.

No purchase necessary sweepstakes:

All CharityMania sweepstakes are “no purchase necessary”. If someone wants a free sweepstakes game card, they can come to your organization and fill out a request form (provided by CharityMania) to get a free Game Card. They mail the completed request form to CharityMania along with a self-addressed stamped envelope and then we will mail the person a game card. We do not mail them the access code that allows people to download the digital music (because they are not paying). This process is very standard for all companies that conduct sweepstakes.

Managing your fundraiser could not be easier!

Everything you need… all in our intuitive, easy-to-use Fundraiser Manager

CharityMania provides you with a password protected website that allows you to manage every aspect of your fundraiser. Our intuitive tools will help you organize your ticket sellers, track your ticket sales, pay your invoice, and coordinates prize money payments to your winners.

Our customers tell us that CharityMania fundraisers are the simplest, easiest fundraisers they have ever run. You just sell tickets and our helpful web tools will pretty much do everything else for you!

Track your ticket sales with just a click

When you sell your CharityMania tickets, you collect the ticket stubs from your sellers and store the stubs in a safe place. You will then “activate” each sold ticket by simply putting a checkmark next to each sold ticket number in the Fundraiser Manager. This tells us which tickets have been sold and which associated game cards to activate. We use this information to create your invoice and to know which game cards to include in the prize money calculations. You can activate the tickets as you go or all at once before the fundraiser begins. The process is super simple!

Fundraiser finances at your fingertips

With the CharityMania Fundraiser Manager, you have access to all of your fundraiser’s important financial information. You’ll know how much you’ve made and how much you owe. You can view your invoice and pay it electronically for the ultimate in convenience and tracking. Invoices are sent out after the start of the fundraiser. You are not billed until this time. You don’t pay anything until the fundraiser starts!

Throughout the fundraiser, CharityMania will calculate winning game cards and pay you the prize money so you can distribute it to your winning ticket holders. The Fundraiser Manager allows you to track which of your game cards are winners so you know who will receive prize money.
