AmazonSmile is a way to support Ratchet Rockers by doing what you already do on Amazon – SHOP! The AmazonSmile Foundation donates 0.5% of the purchase price that is eligible to support us and the ongoing needs we have for supplies, competition fees, and more. Simply visit smile.amazon.com and select Ratchet Rockers Robotics to receive donations.
*Special note, shopping on AmazonSmile is an indirect donation to Ratchet Rockers. Donations are made by the AmazonSmile Foundation and are not tax deductible by you.
Gifts-In Kind are contributions of goods (like computers, furniture, and office equipment), services (like mail services, administrative support or financial support), and expertise (like business advice, grant writing, marketing, video production, and strategic planning). Your in kind gift integrates your organizations’ donated products or services with our mission to inspire and instill character and confidence in our students through FIRST Robotics while promoting STEM activities. In kind gifts help Ratchet Rockers minimize the budget required to purchase supplies for our robot, maintain our new space, and cover registration and travel fees incurred for competitions.
We are now accepting donations and sponsorship payments via PayPal. The system uses a secure PayPal system. You don’t need to have a PayPal account. You can use any major credit card and pay a specified amount. At this point you can click on either the Sponsorship Pay Now or the Donate button. This service is available to you at no charge. Your generous financial support directly supports the team and helps us reach our goal of fielding a successful robot in every event we attend. We appreciate your support!
Corporate Matching Gifts increase your giving! Ask your employer if they participate in a Matching Gift Program. Many employers will match your contributions or volunteer hours. It is possible to double, or even triple, your donation to Ratchet Rockers. Contact your company’s Human Resources Department to research the giving options available.
