Spond Superdraw - FAQs for Fundraisers

I have been included as a Spond Superdraw fundraiser by my group. What does this mean?

Your group has signed up to raise funds through Spond Superdraw and, as a member or supporter, you have been included as a fundraiser. This means you can help to raise funds by selling entries to Spond Superdraw. If you have been nominated as a fundraiser, you should have received your own personalised selling page.

How does my personalised Spond Superdraw selling page work?

It’s really simple. You can show it to someone and let them purchase their entries on your own device. Or share the URL webpage link with anyone you know via Messenger, WhatsApp, SMS or email, and they can enter using any smart device or computer.

I don’t want to be a Spond Superdraw fundraiser. Can I withdraw?

Of course. Simply ask your group admin to remove you from the list of fundraisers.

Can I compare my performance against other fundraisers from my group?

Depending on the options selected by your campaign admin, you may be able to view a league table of the top fundraisers in your group. This feature is not available by default.

Are there any incentives for the fundraiser with the highest total at the end of Spond Superdraw campaign?

Participating groups have the ability to run a friendly competition between their fundraisers to see who can achieve the highest number of entries and they may offer a prize or incentive should they wish to do so. This is entirely optional and does not form part of the service offered by Spond. Please speak to your group admin to find out if they are offering any incentives, or if you would like to suggest it.

Who can I sell Spond Superdraw entries to?

You can sell entries to anyone over the age of 18. They don’t need to be a member of your group, but they should be a resident of Great Britain. For anyone under the age of 18, their parents or guardians can buy entries instead. You can ask friends, family, neighbours or colleagues, just bear in mind that Spond Superdraw is a bit of fun, and nobody should feel pressured into taking part.

Can I share my Spond Superdraw link with others?

Yes, you can send your Spond Superdraw link to people you know and share it on your social media accounts, but you should not send it to anyone you don’t know, unless they have asked or agreed to receive it. Here’s an example:

  • Acceptable - You get your Gran to ask her friends if they would like to enter Spond Superdraw, and you then send the fundraising link to everyone who agrees to take a look.

  • Not acceptable - You borrow your Gran’s phone and send your fundraising link to everyone in her contacts.

Spond Superdraw is networked across all participating groups and the prizes are provided by Spond. Proceeds to individual groups are based on the percentage of overall sales made to their supporters.

From this, Spond will take 50% of the total to cover admin, prize(s) and payment processing, so the total funds raised by the group will be £500.

How do I know the funds from Spond Superdraw entries I sell will go to the group I am supporting?

If there are multiple prizes, the overall odds of winning will improve, but will still be based on the number of entries sold.
