Oregon State Raffle Regulations

The only organizations that may qualify to conduct bingo, raffles, or Monte Carlo events in Oregon are those that are exempt from the payment of federal income taxes. This includes public agencies and public schools. Private organizations may also qualify if they are active, nonprofit organizations exempt from the payment of federal income taxes. In addition, an organization must have held tax exempt status for at least one year and been engaged in its charitable, fraternal, or religious purpose during that time.

Certain nonprofit organizations are required to register with the Oregon Department of Justice under Oregon’s Charitable Trust and Corporations Act.
