ORGANIZATION LICENSING

In accordance with the Code of Virginia, any organization wishing to conduct bingo activities; or anticipating gross receipts of $40,000 or more from its raffle activities within any 12 month period, must file a Charitable Gaming Application and submit a $200 nonrefundable application fee payable to the Treasurer of Virginia, prior to commencing any charitable gaming activities.  Volunteer Fire Departments and Rescue Squads who have been recognized by their locality in accordance with § 15.2-955 of the Code of Virginia; or an organization anticipating gross receipts less than $40,000 from bingo activities are exempt from the application fee.

Applications will be processed in the order in which they are received. The Office of Charitable and Regulatory Programs has 45 days to process completed applications. Incomplete applications will delay issuance of the charitable gaming permit.

To amend a current charitable gaming permit, such as changing times, dates or locations of the charitable gaming activity, submit a Permit Amendment form, which may be found below.  Please submit the Permit Amendment form as far in advance of the effective date of the change in order to give OCRP ample amount of time to process the form.

To update information on any personnel involved in the management and operation of charitable gaming, such as President, Treasurer, Bingo Manager, Game Manager, Charitable Host Representative or equivalent position, submit a Gaming Personnel Information Update form, which may be found below.

To temporarily suspend or permanently terminate a current charitable gaming permit, submit a Report of Game Termination form, which may be found below.
