USA Roller Sports

PairsRoller Skating is a wonderful sport that enables athletes to choose different ways of developing their athletic skills. Whether Speed, Hockey or Figure skating, athletes strive for their best performance. When they qualify for a World Team, we want to be able to send them expense paid to that competition. Right now we are unable to do that.

Consequently, USA Roller Sports, a 501(c)3 organization is seeking the assistance of philanthropic grants and donations from interested skating friends to create an endowment that will ensure these athletes can have their expenses met.

We hope that those people who care about the sport or people within the sport will consider a tax deductible donation to ensure the continuous involvement of talented athletes to compete in International Competition.

Please consider helping our athletes at whatever level you feel you can support given your life circumstances.

The purpose of the endowment is to perpetually fund the International Travel of USA Roller Sports Athletes.

Speed SkatingGifts to this fund are restricted and cannot be used for any purpose other than our World Team Athletes. The net fair market value of your gift can be considered as a charitable contribution for income tax purposes. Acknowledgement of your gift will be provided by USA Roller Sports.

Persons or organizations donating resources to the endowment fund will be recognized in USA Roller Sports publications.

What is an endowment?

An endowment fund is very similar to a trust. Gifts are made to the fund which increases its principal. Only the earnings may be spent. An annual “harvest” of these earnings will be used to perpetually fund international travel for our Junior and Senior World Class Team athletes.

ENDOWMENT NEWS UPDATE
Thus far we have raised approx $40,000 toward our goal. We are seeking grant money to assist with building the endowment but we must demonstrate that our own membership believes in the program and contributes at least 5% of the necessary funds.

A very generous figure judge, Evelyn Fisher, donated one quarter of her estate to this fund. Evelyn’s untimely death in 2009 was a major loss to the sport, but her contributions will live on in perpetuity.

Jack and Nancy Becker have made an $11,000 cash donation We understand that economic times are challenging but ask that you consider donating to this fund as one of your yearly considerations. We all donate to charities that are important to ourselves or our values. We give $10 to Girl Scouts or donate to Salvation Army kettles during the holidays. Skating is an important segment of your life and hope you will consider a donation to this deserving cause. No gift is too small.
