Is Your Raffle Legal?

Is your Raffle Legal

Raffles are governed by State laws and sometimes County and even City laws. Some states allow nonprofit organizations to raise money by selling raffle tickets, but some states prohibit raffles of any kind. No state allows individuals or for-profit groups to conduct raffles. Many states, Counties and Cities require that a permit be obtained and printed on the Raffle Ticket. Confused? We recommend that you consult your attorney prior to ordering your raffle tickets. Once you know the legal requirements in your area you can proceed in raising money for your organization knowing that you are within the law.
