Looking to host a fundraiser that will dazzle your supporters and raise funds in style? Look no further than a casino fundraiser! Imagine the excitement of a night in Las Vegas right at your venue, with professional dealers, authentic casino games, and the thrill of winning big. Whether you’re raising money for a charity, school, or nonprofit organization, our casino fundraisers offer a unique and entertaining way to engage donors and boost contributions.


Casino fundraisers are one of the most effective tools for charity fundraising and have the added benefit of including built-in party entertainment. A well-organized, casino-themed event draws a larger crowd and therefore increases donations for your non-profit. It’s important to select a reputable company to provide the casino tables and dealers, which ensures the event will be a success and your guests have a good time. A successful charity casino fundraiser will often become an annual event.

Blackjack Players


Fundraising with a casino means hosting a casino-themed event where attendees purchase tickets or make donations to participate in various games of chance, such as blackjack or texas hold’em poker. Donations are generated through ticket sales, sponsorships, auction items, and the sale of gaming chips. Participants play at the gaming tables for a chance to win prizes donated by event sponsors. The key to successful fundraising with a casino lies in creating an enjoyable experience for attendees while encouraging generosity through gaming and other fundraising activities.

Working with a smaller crowd or a known group of poker players? Poker tournament fundraisers are also a great way to generate donations for your non-profit. Collect entry fees, re-buys, and add-ons during the tournament, all of which go straight to your charity. Whether it’s one or 20+ Texas Hold’em tables, your tournament will be a success thanks to our highly-trained poker dealers and professional tournament directors.


Yes, casino fundraisers are legal in California for non-profit organizations only. In order to host a casino fundraiser, however, your non-profit organization is required to meet certain criteria:

  • Your charity must be a 501(c)3 non-profit organization, registered and in good standing with the state of California
  • Your charity must have been qualified to conduct business in California for at least three years prior to the casino fundraiser
  • Your charity is only allowed to hold ONE casino fundraiser every 12 months

In addition, the State of California imposes various requirements/limitations for the casino fundraiser itself:

  • Your non-profit will be required to apply for a casino fundraiser permit at least 30 days prior to the event, in addition to providing a $100 fee to the State
  •  Only “controlled games”, as defined by the State of California, are allowed to be played at casino fundraisers
  • Attendees to the fundraiser must be at least 21 years of age
  • Only donated prizes can be awarded to winners (no cash prizes!)
  • Only permitted casino party suppliers may provide casino equipment to casino fundraisers (don’t worry, Aces Up is permitted!)

I held a Casino Night fundraiser for the Coast Guard Chief Warrant Officers Association in Alameda… Approx. 200 people attended and I heard nothing but praise from any of the guests. The dealers were professional, and fun. The room was filled with cheers and laughter the entire evening and we exceeded our fundraising goals. It was a great evening for the 1st annual event and Aces Up was an integral part of our success.
