Gaming Information for Charitable Groups Online
November 13, 2013
Alberta's charities can now GAIN knowledge online
A popular program offered by the Alberta Gaming and Liquor Commission (AGLC) is now available online to help Alberta's charitable organizations gain essential information to help better understand the responsibilities and requirements of running charitable gaming activities.
The Gaming Information for Charitable Groups (GAIN) program is free for groups that conduct, or want to conduct, charitable gaming activities like bingos, casinos, pull tickets or raffles.
The new online format is a convenient option for charitable groups and their volunteers, and individuals to access information on running charitable gaming activities at any time. GAIN is available online or through facilitated sessions provided by the AGLC.
Over the past 10 years, the AGLC's GAIN program has provided information to more than 34,000 volunteers in 126 communities to help them better understand the responsibilities and requirements of running charitable gaming activities. GAIN sessions include information on eligibility requirements, the licensing application process and allowable uses of proceeds.
Individuals and groups have benefitted from the GAIN program by learning how to run charitable gaming events that are accountable to their members and the community at large.
