Re: Independent Teams?

225 is not affiliated with a school. Here are the biggest differences I've seen:

- We need to pay for our own liability insurance
- We need to do our own org management/tax filing/etc
- Build space and tools are either paid for or a donation
- We need a 501c3 for donations
- We don't have to abide by any rules set by another organization other than FIRST (snow days, restrictions on hours, etc).
