Raising Funds Through Charitable Gaming
The Charitable Gaming Division of the Michigan Lottery provides fundraising opportunities to local non-profit organizations to help strengthen Michigan communities. During fiscal year 2019, licensed organizations throughout the state raised over $61 million that directly supported their lawful purposes.
Qualified organizations can get a license to hold a raffle or special bingo or to sell charity game tickets.
Raffles drawings are the most popular type of fundraising event, often with a variation in the drawing. A special bingo license is used at carnivals and most recently to hold car bingo. Charity game tickets can be sold under a bingo or raffle license or under its own license.
Most weekly bingo games are thriving in their clubs and bingo halls and charity game ticket sales generates great profit for the organization.
Veteran and fraternal clubs have also been successful with the sale of charity game tickets throughout the year at their club location.
