Frequently Asked Questions

TapKat is for nonprofits only – can any nonprofit use TapKat for fundraising?

TapKat serves U.S. based nonprofit organizations. Here are the basic requirements:

  • Must be a U.S. nonprofit organization with a valid EIN, in good standing with the IRS
  • Your nonprofit tax exempt status must have been granted for at least 1 year (Ruling Year)

I don’t have a prize – how can I get a really great prize?

Your choice of a prize is a key component for your drawing campaign and we’re here to help. TapKat has partnered with companies that can supply a prize that’s just right for your TapKat drawing campaign. And we’re happy to share our expertise and brainstorm about your perfect prize. Just give us a call or send us an email.

Do we need to purchase the prize upfront?

No, TapKat has structured our drawing campaigns to keep upfront costs to a minimum. You can set a minimum number of dollars that must be raised before you award that prize. The minimum ensures you can both pay for your prize and still raise a good sum of money for your nonprofit. If you've met or exceeded the minimum when the drawing closes, the prize is purchased using the funds you’ve raised, and you award the prize to your winner.

Do I need a web developer?

No – we build and host your TapKat drawing campaign for you on the TapKat platform. All you need to do is promote it with links and graphics on your website, social media posts and email campaigns.

What happens once my TapKat drawing campaign is live?

TapKat goes to work! We automate and manage all the logistics of your drawing campaign – taking payments, issuing entry numbers, emailing donation receipts and keeping your donor records stored in a database just for your nonprofit. That leaves you free to go out and tell the world about your fun and exciting TapKat fundraiser!

Is a TapKat drawing campaign a raffle?

TapKat drawing campaigns are sweepstakes. There’s a big difference and we’d be happy to answer any questions you have. TapKat Rules have been structured and vetted for U.S. nonprofits to be able to run TapKat campaigns online.
