- ItemOpen AccessThe ethics of charitable gambling : a survey(Canada West Foundation, 2000-12) Azmier, Jason J.; Roach, RobertIn the summer of 2000, the Canada West Foundation conducted a national survey of Canadian charities to study both practices and attitudes towards gambling. Do the employees and volunteers of charitable organizations feel that gambling is an ethical method of generating revenue? Do they feel gambling causes social problems? What types of games do they consider acceptable? How do charities feel about increased government involvement in gambling? The survey findings provide answers to these and other questions. By doing so, the survey provides a useful starting point for a more informed debate about the advantages and disadvantages of using gambling revenues to fund charitable organizations. The first half of this report provides an overview of charitable gambling in Canada and an analysis of its pros and cons as a fundraising method. The second half examines charitable gambling issues through the eyes of charitable organizations. The report concludes with a set of recommendations for improving charitable gambling policy in Canada.
