We require your host site’s W9 form because we allocate grants through a regrant process.
A regrant process is when an organization (in this case, Girls Who Code) receives funds through a grant and then distributes those funds to another organization through a grant. We must receive the W9 in order to redistribute funds.
A W9 form is an IRS form used to gather tax information. Clubs can request a W9 form directly from the host site. (For Clubs hosted at libraries: we can also accept an alternative document that notes the library FSCS ID or LIBID.)
