• Direct donations to NOCF are tax deductible, but confirm this with your accountant.

  • Raffle donation structure:

    • .90 cents of every $1 raised will go directly to the nonprofit cause as designated by each raffle

    • Approximately .05 cents of every $1 raised will be used to support the NOVA Open Charitable Foundation overhead, administrative costs, and shipping fees

    • Approximately .05 cents of every $1 raised will be used to cover PayPal fees and tax reporting

  • An order of less than $12 will negatively impact the NOCF operating costs. To ensure that the maximum percentage of each ticket purchased will benefit the designated charitable cause, we encourage customers to consider adding a $5 donation to their cart..

  • Ticket purchases, though supporting nonprofit charitable causes as outlined above, are not tax deductible.

  • The buyer’s name will be entered into the raffle once for every ticket purchased. The NOVA Open Charitable Foundation will use an accurate, independently-developed electronic randomizer to select the winners.

  • If the winner does not respond to NOCF efforts to engage - via website announcements, PayPal email address, All Points Bulletins on social media, and/or all other means at their disposal - a second drawing will occur four (4) weeks after the original, and the new winner will be contacted. This process will continue until a winner acknowledges the NOCF announcement.

  • Armies will be packaged and shipped with tracking information provided to the winners.

  • Members of the NOVA Open Charitable Foundation Board of Directors and the NOVA Open Executive Board, are ineligible to win.
