Forest Hill Lodge (Lodge) is a seniors’ residence operated as a not-for-profit organization. During 20X2, Lodge built a new bingo hall on its property at a cost of $ 1,200,000. The bingo hall was financed with $ 600,000 of donations from private individuals and a $ 600,000 grant from the provincial government. In addition, a $ 50,000 donation was received specifically to cover the cost of future maintenance of the bingo hall. The bingo hall commenced operations on September 1, 20X2. In the last four months of the year, $ 15,000 was spent on maintenance of the bingo hall. The estimated useful life of the bingo hall is 40 years. Lodge amortizes its capital assets using the straight- line method.
Among other things, Lodge has an excellent reputation for its bingo nights. Most of the callers and runners for the bingo nights are unpaid volunteers.
