Can we give away door prizes at bingo?

Yes, door prizes are allowed if there is no charge for a chance to win the prize. The value of the prize is recorded in the expense area of the organization’s application and event report. Do not record it as a prize paid. When giving away a cash door prize, the amount should be recorded in the cash expense area of the event report. When purchasing merchandise to give away as a door prize, the cheque should be recorded in the other expense column of the financial report covering the period in which these prizes were purchased.
