Fundraising Goal: $30,000.00 in Sales

Fundraising is just one of the ways the club is working to meet increased financial pressures. We hope to get into the community and show some team spirit.

Everyone needs to buy groceries, and purchasing gift cards through the club doesn’t cost parents anything extra. The target of $30K in sales will result in about $2500 going towards the Club’s fundraising budget of $10K. These funds will go towards developing the multipurpose room and purchasing equipment (new beam!).

Community Initiatives Funding – Your Support Needed

Multi Purpose Room

The club is moving forward with development of a Multi – Purpose Room in the upper mezzanine space currently occupied by the men’s locker room. We have applied to 7 areas of the RDCK for funding through the CIP. We are looking for club members who reside in these areas to help support this project.

For the last few years the club has been unable to alleviate wait lists, and are bursting at the seams during peak class times. Our goal with the multi-purpose room is to increase capacity so we can run additional after school classes. A number of other “off-peak” programs will be developed as well.

The project includes a revitalization of the entire upper area and locker room space. We will reconfigure all of the bathrooms and locker rooms on the North side where the current girl’s locker room is. A smaller boys bathroom & change space will be included in the reconfiguration. The existing boys bathroom and change space will be combined with a portion of the viewing area to create a space suitable to run classes.

We are currently in our 2nd year of fundraising and grant writing to raise the estimated $50,000.00 budget. We have secured approximately $30,000.00 to date, with plans to raise the $20,000.00 this spring and summer.

We Need Your Support

We are seeking funding through the Columbia Basin Trust – Community Initiatives Program (CIP). A large component of successful funding through this program is via community engagement and input from the community members of each electoral area.

Glacier Gymnastics Club has put forth an application asking for a total of $20,000.00 from seven (7) of the electoral areas that regularly have participants attending gymnastics.

We are looking for gymnastics families who live in the various areas to help support this work. We need Club members to attend their respective Community Engagement meetings and vote for the project. Successful funding is highly dependent upon the support of community members.

Following are details of the upcoming meetings and the Club’s funding application.

If you are interested in learning more about the project and can help support the club at your area’s meeting, please contact Steve@glaciergymnastics.com.
