Fundraising Guidelines – Supporting the Victims of Typhoon Haiyan
As the hardships of the Philippines continue to come to light, many organizations and individuals are looking for ways to help. While this generosity is extremely important, and greatly needed, it is important to keep in mind the gaming policies which surround raising money for relief efforts.
In January 2005, the government made amendments to gaming policies, allowing in certain circumstances the use of net proceeds from licensed gaming events to assist with relief efforts for disasters and emergencies that have occurred outside of British Columbia. Organizations wishing to participate in such fundraising efforts must meet the specified criteria and obtain a license from the Gaming Policy and Enforcement Branch.
