I think you mean "non-profit" instead of "non-prophet". I'm sure each church has some beliefs about prophets...
Also, they are likely considered non-profit because they are not *supposed* to keep any monetary profit for the benefit of one or two people - the intent is that they distribute it back to the community or for use within the church itself - a community organization.
But.. does that actually happen? I have no idea.
Churches are considered to be non-profits and are tax exempt because they are deemed to be charitable organizations without a profit motive. Most churches provide assistance in their communities although the level of this varies by church. Many churches provide assistance to their members and the community at large through clothing and food assistance, perhaps financial assistance like help to pay heating bills, and support to other non-profits. If they did not do this than there would be a larger demand for services from the government. I guess the various taxing authorities feel this is a reasonable trade-off.

Why are taxpayer funds given to political action non-profits who contribute to political campaigns?Payback to campaign donors for support during an election seems to be just another way to waste taxpayer money. The politics of Washington and our Government are corrupt.
