To be eligible to hold charitable gaming activities, a group must:

  • have a broad-based volunteer membership
  • have a democratically chosen executive
  • have unpaid members and directors
  • show that they offer programs that benefit a significant segment of the community, not member’s self-interest or individual/personal benefit
  • demonstrate that they actively deliver a program or service to the community

AGLC’s role is to:

  • determine eligibility based on policy
  • approve how an organization can use the proceeds from charitable gaming based on policy
