The Raffle Policy for University Fundraising Efforts, approved and signed by President Tripathi, is available in the University Policy Library


The University at Buffalo permits departments, entities and organizations to conduct raffles to raise funds in support of university related activities. Raffles must be conducted in accordance with university, state and tax reporting requirements.

If you are planning to conduct a raffle, you must submit the Raffle Proposal to Financial Management for approval ten business days prior to the start of raffle ticket sales.

Raffle tickets may not be purchased using university accounts or funds and all raffle proceeds must be deposited into a UB Foundation account.


This policy applies to all raffles conducted by or on behalf of university departments, entities and organizations as a form of university fundraising efforts for university purposes.
