Bingo School is a training program offered each year by the Charitable Law Section that reviews legal and recordkeeping requirements for organizations that hold or are considering applying for a bingo license.
The laws surrounding the operation of traditional bingo and instant bingo tickets require organizations to keep close track of proceeds in order to protect funds that are used to support charitable activities.
Bingo school is an ideal way for groups considering bingo to get an idea of the various responsibilities involved. The training is also a handy refresher for new officers and members of organizations that hold a bingo license.
Because the recordkeeping requirement differ for 501(c)(3) groups and non-501(c)(3) organizations, separate recordkeeping sessions are presented.
