Best Practice for Prizes for Fundraisers
March 24, 2014 2:56 PM Subscribe
I work with an organisation which traditionally gives cash prizes to winners in charitable events they hold like duck races and pub quizzes. I am looking for best practice resources or studies (rather than anecdata) to show them that this is terrible development practice, if indeed it is.

My thinking is two-fold: one, nobody enters a $5 duck race in the hopes of winning $150, so this is wasteful of much needed-funds; two, it turns donors off to see an organisation asking for money one week while literally giving it away the next.
Please provide resources to back me up or set me straight. Thanks!
