WE MAKE IT EASY TO START A BOOSTER CLUB

Step 1: Incorporate*

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.

Step 4: Register w/ state*

Most states require registration prior to fundraising or conducting BINGO or raffles; you also must apply for state sales tax exemption.

* State filing fees may apply.
