Games of Chance

A fundraising activity involving a for-profit business or a game of chance or gambling should be considered carefully before proceeding. The funds raised from these activities may be subject to taxation and, in extreme circumstances, may cause the PTA involved to lose its tax-exempt status.

In addition, raffles, bingos, casino nights, other games of chance, and auctions, may be limited to or prohibited by state and local law or school policy. If permitted, they may require special registration with state or local authorities.
