How much can I win?
The amount you can win depends on the amount raised through raffle ticket sales. We also get charged for service, merchant, and credit card fees. These fees will be split in half between the winner and our STEMIA Parent Fundraising Society.
POT MONEY: $10,000
FEES: $700 (Split equally between winner and Parent Fundraising Society)
Approximate net earnings/ Winner: $4650
Approximate net earnings/ STEMIA Parent Fundraising Society: $4650
There are 1000 tickets available and if we sell all of them, the winner can potentially win a gross amount of $10,000, excluding fees.
How does a 50/50 Raffle Fundraiser work?
A 50/50 fundraiser is a similar concept to a regular raffle. The prize, also known as the "pot", is the amount raised by selling tickets. The winner of the pot wins 50% of the prize money. The other 50% goes to our STEMIA Parent Fundraising Society.
For instance, if $8000 is raised through the sale of tickets, the winner of the raffle will win $4000, and the other half of the pot will go to our STEMIA Parent Fundraising Society. Please note that the associated fees will be split equally between the winner and our STEMIA Parent Fundraising Society.
