Why Donate?

Mentors share their real-world experience in engineering, business, computer science, electronics, fabrication, project management, marketing, and more with students! We have the rare opportunity to get hands-on training in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM).  FIRST participants are 50% more likely to attend college, twice as likely to major in science and engineering, and 70% more likely to volunteer in their communities. (Source: http://www.firstinspires.org/)

Robotics teams are awesome, but expensive! We need to raise an average of $50,000 every year to fund our team. We need funding for robot parts, tools, safety equipment, computers, raw materials, uniforms, transportation, and travel expenses. Any amount, even $25 would be more than helpful. We also accept donations of goods and services. If your employer has a matching funds program, please be sure to tell them that you donated money to the Issaquah Robotics Society.
