I was wondering if we could all start a list here of all the organizations that have been started, both by teams and misc. members who wander from competition to competition. This list can be continuously updated, and you can put contact info such as web page, email contacts, etc., into so people know who to talk to about the organization. I'll start with:

The Inspiration Foundation Inc., an organization dedicated to helping financially support FIRST teams who have difficulty due to geographic locations and other factors in supporting themselves. For information contact Leon Machado at leon.machado@gmail.com.

A while back the guys from 25 started the East Coast Drivers Union. It seems that it died out but hopefully it will get going again.
