R4 is not a nonprofit, we are a club. We depend on the generosity of investors to help us with the expenses we incur. Should you choose to make a donation, you have our word that we use the utmost care in managing the generosity of others. Monies collected are used to replace overly-worn electronics kits, replace worn or broken tools such as drills, heat guns, drill bits and rotary tools. We also require additional materials in building and maintaining our exhibit booth as well as consumables used during competition. If you wish to donate materials instead of money, click on the Contact Us, we love to recycle and re-purpose materials. Your generosity will impact the lives of many students all working to be greater than average!
