Social & Charitable Resources
It should be noted that the Commission can only approve Social & Charitable Gambling activities that are conducted by Charitable organisations, clubs, groups or societies that are based, and run from Jersey.
Individual members of the public can raise funds for a charity by any other means except gambling. Raffles, lotteries and bingo are considered gambling. Individual volunteers, wishing to raise money for good causes, using gambling events with the public of Jersey, can only do so with prior agreement and supervision from the Promoter appointed from within that charity, club or society. These organisations must hold a valid Registration or Permit with the Commission before any such events are advertised or promoted. If you do so without the charity's knowledge and oversight, you could be committing an offence.
Social & Charitable regulation falls into three categories and the type of permission required is determined by the value of prizes offered;
Note: Prize fund refers to the total value of all prizes offered. An appropriate value must be attributed to any prizes that are donated. There is no requirement to offer a fixed percentage of ticket sales as part of the prize fund, however the Promotor must ensure that any prizes offered are given to the winners and terms and conditions of entry are transparent and fair.
