The Center for Bridge Education is an all volunteer tax deductible 501(c)3 organization. Our board and instructors donate their time and money because we believe that bridge is beneficial for people. Our expenses are for our youth programs. For school clubs, in addition to instruction, we provide boards, cards, bidding boxes, books and pamphlets, and refreshments. We sponsor inter-school tournaments where refreshments are provided. If students go to tournaments, we pay their table fees, provide rides, and typically buy them a meal. We pay ACBL membership dues. We pay all expenses to send as many as 16 students to the youth NABC each year. This is our major expense and can cost $5,000 or more depending on the number of students sent and the location of the event. Our only overhead relates to our newsletter and website. Even our legal costs have been donated.
