We held our first "tin can" raffle this past October with some results, I was hoping for better donations, but maybe I sent out requests to late. I started at the end of July and August. We will be doing this as an annual raffle in October, when is the best time to start asking for donations. Will companies give donations early in the year, say like January or February if the event is not till October. Any advise would be greatly appreciated.

For the online or mail in requests I'd start 6 months in advance. For door to door I'd probably start 4 months ahead. Local businesses appreciate people who request things in advance. I think it increases your chances of getting something from a local business because you're not asking at the last second.

If you start too far ahead you'll risk volunteer fatigue.
