So, two years later, how did this go? Just curious. I may be forming a new organization. What big hurdles did you have?I have started a new travel 10u girls fastpitch team comprised of 12 girls. We have insurance , facilities to practice in,team checking account, and already signed up for tournaments and started practicing. I would like to seek sponsorship from local businesses and fund raise, but want to do so with out getting into any legal trouble later. Should i fill out a W-9 form to get a tax id and then try to get 501c(3) status for a non-profit and tax exemption or is this overboard for what we are doing. We are keeping our tournaments within 1 hour this season and only need the extra money to help pay for uniforms and tournament costs. However in the future we may add more teams. What name do I put on line (1) of the W-9 and do I mark it a sole proprietorship since i am not a organization as of yet? Also if anyone has good advice on where to go get assistance on filling out the forms for 501c(3) please point me in the right direction.
Thanks for the help in advance.
