It seems like every time you turn around, another charity is conducting a raffle, sweepstakes, contest, casino night or door prize give-away. The questions that most charities don’t ask are: Are such activities legal under Georgia law? Are there ways to conduct such activities so that they are legal? How can I raise needed funds through giveaways and games of chance or skill in Georgia? Attend this workshop to get the answers!

During this workshop our speaker:

• Provides an overview of the general promotions laws of Georgia;
• Talks about illegal lotteries and gambling and how to legally structure promotions in Georgia, including “raffles” for §501(c)(3) nonprofit organizations;
• Provides practical advice for conducting sweepstakes and contest; and
• Discusses additional considerations, such as official rules, abbreviated rules, advertising your charity’s promotion and fulfilling the prizing.
