ABOUT US

We are the Iron Riders' Business Department. Business controls the team's funds; we track donations, apply for grants, and manage the team budget. We apply to grants, maintain corporate sponsorships, as well as organize member-driven fundraisers. Our goal is to ensure a sustainable future for our team.

SPONSORING TEAM 4180

Community support enables the Iron Riders to buy robot parts, attend competitions, and feed hungry team members.  We love our sponsors, and we would love to pursue STEM excellence with your business.

If you are interested in sponsoring the Iron Riders, please contact our business lead at business@ironriders.org.  

HOW TO MAKE A TAX DEDUCTIBLE DONATION

We accept tax deductible donations of any amount and from anyone!

The Iron Riders work with FIRST Washington to raise the funds we need to participate in FRC and to support the team as we strive to meet the Mission and Vision of FIRST. Money donated will primarily go toward building our FRC competition robot, buying team gear, and FRC competition registration. Additionally, FIRST Washington is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit (EIN 45-2443839), so your donation is tax-deductible, and matchable by your employer.

How to donate to our team through FIRST WA online:

  1. Go to https://www.gifttool.com/donations/Donate?ID=2255&AID=4064 (http://tinyurl.com/4180-donate-online)
  2. Fill out the “My Gift” and “Donor Information” sections
  3. Enter “FRC Team 4180” for the question “Want To Support A Specific Team? Enter Team Number Here”
  4. Under “Donation Designation” leave the default option “Unrestricted Donation (Supports all teams and programs)” selected
  5. Click “Submit Donation”

 

How to donate via check:

  • Checks are to be made out to “FIRST Washington” and MUST have “FRC Team 4180” labeled in the memo.
  • Checks are to be sent directly to:
