Raffles & Fundraising Appeals

Raffles and Fundraising Appeals

Holding a raffle or fundraising appeal within South Gippsland will generally require approval from Council’s Local Laws team.

Raffles can only be run by organisations that have been declared by the Victorian Commission for Gambling and Liquor Regulation (VCGLR). The organisation can hold a raffle without a minor gaming permit as long as the prize value is $5,000 or less.

  • Contact Council’s Local Laws team to check if the dates you require are available.
  • Complete the Street Stall, Raffle & Appeal Submission form.
  • Attach a copy of your organisation’s current public liability insurance policy.
  • Lodge your submission with Council no less than 10 days before the activity is to be carried out.
