I am trying to get a FLL team started, and I have donations available that could cover a significant portion of our initial start-up costs. The catch is that these donations need to be made to a non-profit group with a designation for our team.
I am having a difficult time finding a non-profit group that will support this. FLL coaches manual suggests working with a school. Our school PTA has said "No" and the principal is not sure how to handle such a procedure.
Can anyone offer guidance on how to proceed? Do you know any groups in Virginia and/or Richmond that might support a team and accept these donations on our behalf?
I appreciate any advice!
