Are my raffle tickets Tax Deductible?

No – raffle tickets are not able to be claimed as a tax deduction.  In accordance with Australian Tax Office guidelines, as you receive a ticket with the chance to win a prize in return for your transaction, this is not a donation and therefore your purchase can’t be claimed as a tax deduction.

Only tickets purchased through the raffleforacause.org.au website are considered valid entries in the draw. 


Can I choose my own ticket numbers?

No, unfortunately not – ticket numbers are automatically allocated in sequential order at the time of purchase.  But remember - every ticket number has an equal chance of winning!


Can I purchase tickets as a gift?

Tickets may be purchased for another person as a gift, by way of completing the gift recipients’ personal details at the time of the ticket purchase.  It is the responsibility of the purchaser to ensure gift ticket recipients are eligible under all applicable laws to accept the prizes offered of the raffle. Despite whom purchases the ticket, the name of the person on the ticket number drawn will be considered the “Winner” of the prize.


How do I receive my tickets?

One you have completed your ticket purchase and the payment transaction has been verified, you will receive a “Ticket Order Received” confirmation email with all your receipt details.  ATTACHED as a PDF to this email is your TICKET (or multiple tickets if more than 1 ticket is purchased).  This ticket attachment has all of your ticket details, including your TICKET NUMBER that will be entered into the draw.  (Please don’t confuse your Order Number on the email with your Ticket Number on the ticket attachment).
