Your group would be a Social Club.

Apply as a Social or Savings Club for an EIN online if:

  • Your organized club's purpose is for pleasure, recreation, and other similar non-profit objectives, such as art groups, hiking clubs, sailing clubs, etc.; or
  • Your organized club's purpose is to help your members to save money on purchases, such as airline and cruise savings, grocery savings, etc.; and
  • Your club requires an EIN for banking purposes or to satisfy local law.

Look to see if you do not see the designation Social Club and let me know.
