Important Facts Regarding Non-Profit Membership Designation

a) each league still needs to obtain their own EIN number with the IRS (this is the first step for all organizations/businesses and is unrelated to the charitable organization designation)

b) the umbrella affiliation enables the league to accept charitable contributions including grants. 

c) the umbrella affiliation is a federal charitable designation--it does not grant sales tax exemption or rights to raffling or other gaming (games of chance) activities; these are subject to individual state laws.  Leagues that wish to obtain sales tax exemption or other rights will need to check with their state regulatory authorities regarding individual state requirements.

d) each league needs to complete the JRDA affiliate agreement which is two-fold--they must adopt the Articles of Organization  (which supersedes their own) and complete the Request and Consent Form.

MEMBERSHIP OUTSIDE OF THE UNITED STATES

The JRDA is now offering membership registration structures based on your local currency. This amount will never exceed $200 but may be at a reduced rate depending on the current currency conversion from USD to your local currency. If you're a League outside of the United States please contact treasurer@juniorrollerderby.org for your country's currency code before completing your membership registration.
