A: Yes, a non-profit homeowners association (HOA) in South Carolina can typically hold a fundraiser that includes individuals outside of the HOA community.

It is important to ensure that the fundraiser complies with the HOA's governing documents, state laws, and any local ordinances.

Additionally, if the fundraiser involves games of chance, you may need to consider state gambling laws and obtain any necessary permits.

Consult with an attorney if you have specific legal questions or concerns regarding the planned fundraising activities to ensure they align with all applicable regulations.
