Fundraising is a very important part in running a healthy, financially stable club. Springers is a non-profit organization and relies heavily on the fundraising efforts of its members. All members of our club take part in fundraising efforts. Monies collected are allocated towards the purchase and repair of gym equipment and the building. ALL participants will be required to purchase chocolate bars and the majority of program participants are required to buy the raffle tickets (except Daytime, Parents & Me, and Pre-schoolers).In addition to the mandatory fundraisers, ‘optional’ fundraising is offered throughout the year to those in the Competitive program (Provincial 1-5, National, and T&T). Monies raised through these fundraisers are able to be applied directly to your child’s individual travel fund to cover costs like airfare, hotel, vehicle rental or other competitive costs like required bodysuits or entry fees to competitions. If this money is not used in one year it can be carried over to the next year. If the gymnast leaves the club, the money they raised goes into the general travel fund. Parents can make a request to use these funds as the need arises, simply by filling out a request form through the office. After a form is completed the funds will be withdrawn from your child’s account and transferred to pay for required costs.
Sobeys gift cards are available throughout the year, and are available in $50 or $100 denominations. This is a great fundraising opportunity for Springers with all proceeds going towards new equipment which will benefit all athletes.
