You've got questions. We want to help you get them answered. Once a month we facilitate "Ask Me Anything" sessions within our Bite-Sized Learning series. We hear about nonprofit trends and topics and bring experts in these trends and topics to field your questions about them. Nonprofits of all sizes are welcome. This month you will be able to "Ask Me Anything" about Charitable Gambling. Bring your questions!

Pull tabs, raffles, silent auctions – oh my! There are a lot of options when it comes to charitable gambling in the state of Minnesota, some of which can raise large amounts of money for your organization. Do you have questions about getting started? Are you following all state laws? What are the five approved forms of gambling in MN? Is all the pertinent information on your raffle tickets? Can you add alcohol to a silent auction item? Do you need a license or permit for that? Why can’t you sell raffle tickets online? Can you just make up your own raffle game?  Can volunteers staffing the fundraising event play the raffle games and bid on the auction items? Join us as we answer your charitable gambling questions so you can raise funds legally and without worry. 

The Bite-Sized Learning events are designed by MCN’s Greater Minnesota team to keep us connected across the state. All are welcome here.
