Part 1 - General Provisions
§ 12-9-111. Volunteer services - legislative declaration - immunity

CO Rev Stat ยง 12-9-111 (2016) What's This?

(1) The Colorado constitution recognizes that the conduct of charitable gaming activities is directly related to the need of nonprofit organizations to fulfill their lawful purposes. Notwithstanding this recognition, however, the willingness of bingo-raffle volunteers to offer their services has been increasingly deterred by a perception that they put personal assets at risk should a tort action be filed seeking damages arising from their volunteer activities.

(2) All bingo-raffle volunteers shall be immune from civil actions and liabilities pursuant to section 13-21-115.5, C.R.S., which provides that volunteers shall not be personally liable for their acts or omissions if they are acting in good faith and within the scope of their official function and duty for a charitable organization, with respect to such organization's conduct of games of chance. Bingo-raffle volunteers shall not be liable under this section if the harm is not caused by willful and wanton misconduct, gross negligence, reckless misconduct, or a conscious, flagrant indifference to the rights or safety of the individual harmed.
