Charity Bingo Fundraising: Turn your volunteer time into money for your charity
Each year, Colorado nonprofits raise over $115 million through charitable gaming activities, including conducting bingo, raffles, and pull tabs.
To be eligible to conduct bingo charities must operate without profit to their members and have been in existence continuously for a period of five years. Charities will also need to have members who are willing to volunteer to sell bingo cards and announce the bingo numbers.
Bingo is hard work, but it can be very rewarding. And Bingo Planet is here to help. We can assist through the licensing process, conduct full training, and host practice sessions. And we have onsite management at all times to help ensure profitable, fun and professionally run bingo games.
To conduct charitable bingo your organization will need to obtain a bingo-raffle license from the Colorado Secretary of State. The bingo-raffle license application will require;
- A roster of all bona fide, active members who will be assisting in your bingo activities.
- Copies of articles, bylaws, charter, or other similar organizational documents dated and executed at least 5 years ago.
- Dated items in the organization’s name over the past five years such as bank or audit statements, checks, corporate or other periodic reports, publications, tax returns, exemption certificates, etc.
- The annual fee of $100.
