Fort Wayne's Turnstone Center for people with disabilities is fighting to change the ways the state allows it to fund raise. By law Turnstone, a non-profit organization, relies on donations, grants and fund raising for 60% of its $3.5 million operating budget. Many of the changes center around gambling law.
Next week the organization will meet with members of Indiana's Gaming Commission in Fort Wayne.
Among the proposed changes, allowing raffle tickets to be bought with credit cards. And creating a distinction between charity events that use gaming and traditional gambling.
