Our Mission

Charitable Gambling Made Easy makes life easier for Minnesota organizations, bookkeepers, and accounting firms managing lawful purpose gambling. We help our customers manage every aspect of charitable gambling, while also offering significant reporting and exceptionally accurate tax returns. Our mission is to help you focus on managing your operation without having to be a software or tax return expert.

Whether you are a small operation doing a few games a month or a larger organization with several sites, CGME gives you peace of mind and the tools you need to run a streamlined charitable gaming operation.

Our History

In 2012, CG was born out of a growing need for the next generation of solutions to help MN organizations navigate the ever-changing world of Lawful Purpose Gaming. Cloud-based applications were becoming more standard and to help leapfrog an industry into the 21st century, the first version of CGME was developed. Shortly thereafter came the introduction and eGaming in MN and as a web-based solution, CGME was positioned to help design the complex reporting needs through the launch of this new form of lawful gambling. In 2016, CG launched an application for distributors of lawful gaming and then released OnSite POS solution in 2021.

In just a few short years, CGME has earned the reputation of delivering high-quality technology solutions with superior customer support. We are proud to be your partner in achieving your goals.

Our Philosophy

At CGME, we believe in making the lives of our customers easier. We will only deliver solutions that are intuitive and easy-to-use. We know these things are critical to your success:

  1. The tool must be simple and easy-to-use with intuitive workflows.
  2. MN charitable organizations need standardized processes, but also flexibility.
  3. If our customers are struggling with using the application, the issue is the application's design - not our customers.
  4. Continue to invest in the product or it will become stale and irrelevant.
  5. Always listen - our customers will tell us what the next problems are they need help solving.

Our Commitment

  1. Do right by our customers. Do right by each other.
  2. Exceed expectations daily.
  3. Always get back to a customer in a timely fashion.
  4. Never compromise data integrity.
  5. Charge fairly, based on what customers need and use.
