Sweepstake competitions can be a fun way to help raise money, but there are some basic rules that you will need to follow if you are planning on running your own
Entry price - this must be the same for all participants. Informing your participants - you need to decide before hosting your competition if the entry money will be split between the winner and the charity, or if you are going to have a separate prize with all entry fees going to the charity. Whichever approach you take, participants must be informed before they enter and the host cannot make a profit (i.e. funds will need to be donated). Participants in your office sweepstake - must all be employed to work from the same location. You must not sell sweepstake entries on the street or house to house.
