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.

Qualification Requirements

Occasional Gaming

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.
