We appreciate new Fundraising Ideas can be hard to agree on. Have you ever thought of a Casino night to raise funds for your charity? This concept is fun and profitable. CASINO 1 FOR FUN can assist the organisers of a Fundraising event to guide them through the steps involved and opportunities available.
The standard event involves tickets being sold to guests agreeing to support the event. For the cost of the ticket (entry fee) the guests would receive "funny money" to use at the tables. The table experience allows the players to try their luck and/or learn how to play the games. During the evening, guests are entitled to purchase more "funny money" where all the proceeds are donated to the charity.
At the end of the evening, the chips held by the guests are converted to cheques. The cheque amounts can be used at an auction of prizes which are donated by supporters of the cause.
Information about running community or charitable gaming events legally can be obtained here.
First an organisation has to be assessed by the VCGR (The Commission) for it to be approved as a community or charitable organisation. If your organisation is approved, the Commission will advise you in writing and include a declaration number. To be approved an organisation needs to demonstrate that it exists for a charitable purpose, a sporting or recreational purpose, or is a registered political party.

Then an organisation wanting to conduct a fundraising event must hold a current minor gaming permit. These permits are issued for a specific event. To download the application form for a minor gaming permit Click Here.
