Due to COVID-19, we are all staying socially distant. But that doesn’t necessarily mean that you have to cancel your annual banquet and fundraiser. Usually, Bird Band Raffles are held in person. But here are some other ideas to keep the fundraisers going while staying safe:
- Facebook Live Raffle – Have your chapter president go Live at a designated time. They can show off the auction items, take donations, and name the winner, all in 1 video.
- Online Auction – If you have a website, set up a page where members can view raffle items, buy the number of bands or shotgun shell tags they want, and then mail it to them. Use social media, or email blasts to announce the winner of the drawing.
- Waterfowl Slams – See Utah’s set up here. Bands are mailed out after the hunting season is over based on how much someone participated.
NWTF worked with NB&T to make an easy-to-use PDF order form to order shotgun shell tags or bird bands, and raffle tickets. If your organization is interested in creating something like this for your chapters, email us at [email protected]. If you are a smaller organization, who is interested in having a custom logo stamp made, learn more here. Paper Tickets numbered 1-100 are available (Style R2754) to help your drawing go smoothly.
