Monster Raffle

 

Get ready for the 2019 Scouts & Schools Monster Raffle

Key points

For 15 years this fundraiser has delivered MONSTER results to Scout Groups across Victoria.  Last year we raised more than $700,000 and in total over all the years in excess of $7 million, mostly for Scout Groups!

Schools have participated for the last seven years with $1.5 million dollars raised and since 2015. Community groups are also invited to participate.

Some ideas on what your Group/formation could spend the money on:

  • Subsidising Membership Fees, Adventurous Activities and camp costs
  • Major events including Jamborees, Venture, Cuboree & Kangaree. Even if they aren’t on this year, you can still start ‘banking’ the money now
  • Hall maintenance and upgrades
  • New equipment

Key details

  • One major raffle for Scout Groups (Monster Raffle) and school & community groups (Our School Raffle)
  • An exclusive ticket selling period for Scout Groups
  • Two refund rounds to choose from; either June or October
  • 100% proceeds go back to Groups, that’s $2 for every $2 ticket sold. Schools & Community Groups receive 75%
  • 750,000 tickets available
  • More than 100 prizes, click here to view prize list.

In 2019, the raffle is again open to schools and community groups. It is the perfect fundraising opportunity! You receive $1.50 for every $2 ticket sold. The balance is used to pay for the tickets and the system, so you don’t have to go through the hassle yourselves; nearly all the hard work is done by Scouts Victoria. All you need to do is focus on distributing and selling your tickets.
