Michigan Lottery's Charitable Gaming Division Launches Comprehensive New Web Site!

LANSING, March 2, 2001 – The Michigan Lottery’s Charitable Gaming Division is pleased to announce that information for non-profit gaming activities in Michigan is now available on the Internet.  Qualified organizations can obtain licenses to conduct fund-raising events such as bingos, raffles, millionaire parties and the sale of charity game tickets.

The new site provides the public with an easy way to access information on the Charitable Gaming Division’s programs.  The following information is now available through the Web site:

  • The act, rules and directives governing charitable gaming activities in Michigan.
  • Non-profit organization qualification requirements.
  • Applications to conduct a licensed charitable gaming event.
  • Gaming records to assist groups in conducting events.
  • Reporting requirements and documents.
  • Information on charity game tickets available for sale.
  • Frequently asked questions.
  • A map to assist you in locating our offices.

The new site can be accessed by visiting the Lottery’s Web site.  On the Lottery’s main page, simply click on the Charitable Gaming Division link to gain access to the new site.

“Every year, hundreds of organizations in Michigan conduct charitable events that raise money to assist individuals in need all across the state,” Lottery Commissioner Don Gilmer said.

“The Lottery’s Charitable Gaming Division is who these groups contact to get the licenses they need to sponsor such events.  This new site will make it much easier for these organizations to get the information they need to conduct charitable events and it will significantly cut down on the application processing time.”

This Web site is one of many new or improved on-line services that Michigan constituents can expect this year.  Under the leadership of the e-Michigan Office, established by Governor Engler in Executive Order 2000-6, Michigan will be launching a new state portal that will organize government services by the needs of customers rather than by state agency.  This office will also lead the development of other Web-enabled services such as on-line harbor reservations, golf tee-time reservations, a new Web site for seniors, and electronic invoicing and payment for day care providers.  The new portal will be launched this summer.

For more information about the Lottery’s Charitable Gaming Division, contact the Lottery’s Public Relations division at (517) 335-5648.   For additional information about the e-Michigan Office and state portal, please visit the e-Michigan Web site.
