To help you with getting donations, I’ve put together this list of raffle prize ideas. These are examples of the types of companies I have contacted in the past looking for prizes. Use this as a starting point but then try to get creative by thinking of companies I have missed.

Hopefully, you have already read my guide on how to get raffle prizes donated.

For larger companies, I’ve included how I made the approach – either by letter, email or online. Note these are all requests made from the UK.
