Welcome!  The Department of Charitable Gaming (DCG) provides a regulatory framework allowing charitable gaming to thrive as a viable fundraising mechanism.  The department helps to ensure the productivity of charitable gaming through appropriate regulation, oversight and education.  Our agency is privileged to partner with charities to accomplish these goals and looks forward to continuing that partnership. The department continues to seek new ways to assist charities in gaming, while policing the industry to ensure that charities do not fall prey to those seeking to use charitable gaming as a means to make money for themselves.

As we look to the future, the department will continue to strive to ensure that charitable gaming is an activity in which more charities participate to make money for their causes, and to make the industry safer for those charities already gaming. As always, the department serves as a resource for charities and has training available.  Also, the office is working to make its website more informative and educational for charities.  With your help, charitable gaming has a bright future.
