In the weeks ahead, customers will be able to apply for many permits, including this one, through the City’s new Permitting, Plans and Licensing Portal. The new portal gathers all of the information needed to apply, pay for, and manage permits in one convenient place.
Raffle Permits are regulated by the State of Illinois and are only issued to not-for-profit organizations. Articles of Incorporation, Charter or a Tax Exempt Letter that includes the organizations 501c3 number, must be submitted along with the application and $25 fee. Organizations must be incorporated at least five (5) years and the sales for raffle tickets may not exceed 180 days.
Regulations regarding this type of permit are detailed in the City's Municipal Codebook (3-4A).
I have read all of the above and am ready to fill out the Raffle Permit Application (PDF).
