In Georgia, county sheriffs are charged with enforcing the Georgia Raffle Law, which was enacted in 1995. Fund-raising lotteries or raffles are considered games of chance, and are therefore regulated by the state. Only nonprofit tax-exempt entities, such as churches, schools and civic organizations, are allowed to perform a raffle. Eligible entities are nonprofit organizations qualified under §501c of the Internal Revenue Code, or bona fide nonprofit organizations approved by the sheriff. Georgia law §16-12-22.1 requires such organizations to obtain a license from the Sheriff’s Office of the county in which the nonprofit organization is located.
