Fold, Bet, or Raise Funds: A Primer on Charitable Gambling

Date: Friday, March 27, 2015 12:00 PM to 1:00 PM
Venue: Honors Room / Minnesota State Bar Association  Minneapolis, MN United States  Get Directions
Total Price: $15.00

Deadline to Register is Wednesday, March 25, 2015 if you are attending remotely.

In person attendance can register in advance or at the door.  Don't forget your bag lunch!

Odds are good that if you serve as an advisor for a nonprofit organization (as lawyer or board member), you will run into a proposal to raise funds with a raffle, a casino or bingo night, or other games of chance.  This session is intended to help you spot the legal issues connected to such activities and steer clear of trouble by covering the basics:  what charitable gambling is, who may do it, how licensing works, when licensing is not required, how proceeds may be used, who enforces the rules, and tax issues connected to charitable gambling activities.

This is the second presentation of 2015 for the Business Law Section’s Nonprofit Corporations Committee brown bag lunch series.  We will meet at the MSBA offices at Noon.  Bring your own lunch. Water and soft drinks will be provided.
