Raffles v Opportunity Drawings

By From the Editor, 2017-01-20

You hear the muttering in nonprofit circles - "You can't call it a raffle; it's an opportunity drawing!" Really? I wish it were that simple.  So we have sourced what the state of California actually says, and you can read this here. Google the subject on your own and you will find TONS of material, and could get quite confused. We are not offering advice. We are not lawyers; we might get it wrong. Please draw your own conclusions and act on your own wisdom. At the foot of the document you will also find a link to a very helpful article from Public Counsel which covers other kinds of fundraising. You will find this article again from the main menu under Resources/Raffles.
