Formed in 1994. the National Coalition AGAINST legalized Gambling (NCALG) is a nationwide educational group. It informs citizens about the detrimental effects of legalized gambling on the economic, political, social and physical well being of individuals, the community and the nation. Because NCALG is an educational non-profit 501(c)13) organization, contributions to NCALG are tax deductible.
The National Coalition AGAINST Gambling Expansion is political action arm of NCALG. The two organizations share the same boards of directors and officers. NCAGE works at the national level and assists grass roots organizations to defeat the expansion of legalized gambling and to foil legalized gambling.
Because it is a 501(c)(4) non-profit political action committee, contributions to NCAGE are NOT tax deductible. They are helpful, however, because they may be used to influence specific legislation and to encourage citizens to take action to influence voters and legislators.
