Incorporation protects your volunteers’ assets from personal liability.
Step 2: Get an EIN
Booster clubs need their own EIN, also known as a federal tax ID.
Step 3: Get tax-exempt
IRS 501(c)(3) status is needed to participate in grant and scrip programs, and to allow donations to be tax-deductible.
