FIRST® Washington is bringing Team Booster Accounts into the technology age, finally! This service will be available this spring. The vision is to have all of this online so a team (one designated mentor per team) can check the team’s account balance online and request reimbursement electronically.
In the interim, teams who wish to fundraise for their team through FIRST® Washington, please create your personal fundraising page through our Give Lively site. https://secure.givelively.org/donate/washington-first-robotics/help-bring-stem-alive-for-a-washington-state-young-person
Please do not forget FIRST® Washington is the non-profit that is bringing this resource to you and delivers the program for your team! We encourage you to invite individuals and companies to donate to FIRST® Washington so that we can continue to grow FIRST® programs and reach more youth across Washington State.
