Free nonprofit software being utilized

By Larry Chase

As the Beacon went to press, the Andover Community Hub was launching three internet-based raffles created to (1) bring some life to the dead of New Hampshire winter for the participants, (2) bring some support to the Hub itself, and (3) acknowledge the generosity of the raffle-item donors.

Raffle tickets are $10 each or three for $20. They can be purchased via your cell phone or home computer using the simple instructions below.

But first, here are the items:

One cord of seasoned firewood, valued at $350, delivered within the local area, and contributed by Andover’s Chris Caron

A collection of locally-produced gift items, valued at about $350, contributed by a variety of local businesses and individuals.

Here’s how you can participate:

1. Use your cell phone to scan the QR code in the raffle ad on page ?? of this issue of the Beacon, or visit

2. Click on the raffle item(s) for which you would like to purchase tickets.

3. Select how many tickets you would like to purchase and enter your payment and contact information.  A receipt of the transaction will be sent to your email address.

The winners will be randomly drawn on Friday, February 11, and emailed to arrange for delivery or pickup.

The raffle will be overseen by the Development Committee and Programming and Events Committee of the Hub using software supplied by BetterWorld, a nonprofit supplier of fundraising tools to other nonprofits.
