A new method of digital fundraising has recently been launched.
Created by Capen, the UK’s only specialist digital lottery manager, it will be the UK’s first digital platform to help charities and social organisations to raise funds through online raffles. The platform aims to help charities create online raffles, sell tickets and manage campaigns.
The raffles will be completely free, quick and easy to set up. The platform can run alongside traditional paper raffles and charities can combine their offline sales with online sales generated on Zaffo. The only things charities will need in order to sign up to the platform is a Small Society Lottery Licence which can be obtained from their local authority.

“We’re really proud to help smaller charitable organisations, many of whom are doing amazing work with virtually no budget, get their raffles online and reach their supporters in an innovative and dynamic way.”
Charities that have already signed up to platform include:
The platform gives charities the chance to expand their reach as it is fully optimised for mobile and is social media friendly. Therefore, there are possibilities to reach and engage with audience that they may not have been able to previously.
