How to order scratch cards

Based on the size of your group, you can determine how much you should order as well as calculate your profit. You will qualify for pricing discounts based on the size of your order.

We recommend providing 1-2 cards to each seller. To help determine the number of cards to order, multiply the number of cards per seller by the number of sellers.

For example, a sponsor with 24 students may ask each student to collect donations using 1 scratch card:

1 card / seller x 24 sellers = 24 cards

In our example above, the group makes $1,920 profit by collecting donations from 24 cards making $80 profit per card.

24 cards x $80 profit / card = $1,920 profit

Use the following chart as a guide to set your profit goal based on the number of students in your group and how many scratch cards you want each student to sell:

What is a scratch card fundraiser?

One of the most interactive products that we offer is the scratch card fundraiser. It’s a surprise-driven money maker that will allow you to leverage volume by small donation thresholds.

Scratch cards are a fun and interactive way for students to introduce their cause to potential donors. Instead of just asking for a donation, the scratch card gives the supporter the opportunity to contribute based on what dollar amount is revealed after scratching off a dot.

How do a scratch card fundraiser work?

Each card contains 30 dots. Every dot has an amount hidden under it with a specific dollar value from $1 to $5. Participants take turns scratching off a dot, donating whatever amount is revealed to them underneath.

We’ll personalize your scratch card cover with your organization name and picture. Each card folds into a 4” x 6” size.

What should I know about scratch card fundraisers?

Your card is customized with your photo and organization name. This can help drive home your mission and theme and create a sense of spirit around the fundraiser.

How much money do scratch cards make?

After all of the dots have been scratched, each seller should have collected $100, profiting anywhere from $80-90 depending on the number of scratch off cards that you order. See our card pricing table at the top of the page for more information.

Do we have to pay upfront for scratch cards?

No, you can complete and submit our purchase order form. Once you receive your product, you’ll have 15 days to pay your invoice. This will give you time to collect your money.

How do we design our scratch card?

Simply upload your image on our design form before submitting it to us. When you enter your group's name, we’ll add it to your card.

Do scratch cards expire?

No, there is no expiration date on scratch cards. You can continue to use the card until all of the dots have been scratched.

What are scratch card savings coupons?

Each donor receives a sheet of coupons as a way of saying thank you. The coupons include discounts at exciting retailers like Six Flags®, Papa John’s®, Macy’s, Firestone and more.

The family-focused coupons are a great in-kind offering for a relatively small donation. Generally, families will save more than they spend if they use any of the coupons offered—an excellent selling point.

Will we get to see our scratch card before it’s printed?

Yes, we’ll send you a proof to review and approve before we print and ship your scratch cards.

Do you take back unused scratch cards?

Because your scratch card is personalized with your group name and picture, we don’t take back returns.

Creative scratch cards fundraiser ideas

If you are using the scratch off fundraiser for your youth sports team, try walking around with the cards at a game. Explain the rules ahead of time and approach people before, during, and after to maximize your reach.

The elements of odds and lottery make this less about selling and more about the game of the scratch card itself. This is especially appealing if your school is a little burnt out on traditional fundraising ideas.

Another fun idea to really amp up the idea of odds is to write numbers on every dot and have people pick their number either by choice or from a hat. This adds another layer of engagement.

While this fundraiser could theoretically work with all ages, it’s better suited for adults or older students like high schoolers who you can be sure have cash on them. Scratch cards also tend to work well for those who need to raise money fast.

The options for hosting the scratch card fundraiser are endless but be sure to have your coupon sheets on hand whenever you’re collecting donations. The instant incentive and show of gratitude will keep your customers feeling appreciated.
