Depending on the type of organization that is licensed, the profits generated are used for religious, charitable, and educational purposes. Veteran’s groups will use the monies to assist local veterans in the area and donate to local community causes; Churches and Temples use the funds for their religious purposes and often to defray the cost of tuition at their religious schools; fraternal groups support local charitable causes and programs and provide scholarships for local students. Many fraternal groups also run holiday parties for local senior citizens in need and donate to local food pantries. When you attend your local bingo game, you can certainly have fun and hopefully win some money, but you are also helping your community.
