As a not-for-profit organization, fundraising is required to assist in continuing to provide excellence, keep program fees down, incorporate new programs, program materials, host special events and meet club expenditures. Without fundraising we would either have to make the program fees for each family much higher or alternatively close down the Club.
Support from all STARSkate families is required with a one time, seasonal, mandatory non-refundable amount of $50.00/family. In past years, the Aurora Skating Club has participated in a variety of fundraising events: selling coffee, selling chocolates, selling poinsettias, selling Skate Canada Draw tickets, and selling Magna Hoedown tickets. These events have had varying success and at times serve to be frustrating for many families. The Executive Board Members have decided to implement a seasonal fundraising fee of $50.00 (per family/skater) in lieu of any mandatory fundraising initiatives.
Without support from each and every skating family the Club would not be able to continue to operate. Should the ASC find that the $50.00/STARSkate family is not supported or not enough to cover the necessary costs, the Aurora Skating Club will need to revert back to running fundraising initiatives.
The money raised by fundraising partially funds the following:
Fun Events: Spirit Day
STARSkate Banquet - Awards - Gifts
- Ice Show (bi-annual)
Club operational costs
Thank you for supporting your club!
