Starting a 4-H robotics group

Asked July 1, 2013, 11:01 AM EDT

We are starting a 4-H robotics group at our APG youth center, and we wanted to know how to go about setting up the banking and nonprofit status of our group. This account would be for fund raising and monies for supplies and to offset trip costs. I have gone to the 4-H page, and the link on this subject doesn't work. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I believe your question has been answered since you spoke with both Cynthia Warner and Kathy Porcella this morning in our office. The adult volunteers will need to be UME-trained before starting the robotics 4-H club. Then you may proceed with starting the club, financials, and so on.

Please contact Denise Frebertshauser at the State 4-H Office regarding EIN number, military fundraising efforts, etc. at (310) 314-7819 dfrebert@umd.edu.
