For a non profit organization they're doing pretty well
They did have a rough year in 1999... They had to sell their windows.
@HughJundys, they needed to buy pizzas for their new years party.
That's because they use fainted Pokemon for their fuel needs
@the fork, Either that or they were slowly being bought by Pokémarts before the big merger.
@the fork, I remember that picture.
Non-profit means that there is no extra money left over before taxes are due. All the employees get paid. All the expenses are paid for. All the political causes have been paid for. Every time money is donated to a non-profit, money first goes to employees and their expenses. There may or may not be any money left over to serve the cause that you've donated for.
@Snowballs, that's why most non profits tend to have small numbers of employees who earn small salarys with very little Job security. Not all of them are like the NCAA or Catholic church.
This marks the start of the pokemon update
But they do make a profit. They work with the Pokémarts, and ever since 5th Gen, they've even been in the same building.
@Steven Noodler, I actually preferred it when the pokemart was separate
Non-profit just means they don't make any money at the end of the fiscal year. They still do make money. To put this in perspective, the NFL is non-profit too.
"if you are not paying for a service to be provided, then you are not the customer consuming a product, but rather the product being sold"
Pokemon sucks, unless you are ten
"How do they make money?" "Adds."
The years are off...
Plot twist: the poke center is a Pokemon
We get funding from the Pokemon League.
