CanSkate - Planned start date: January 2021. Stay tuned!
We want to express a thank-you to everyone who is part of our club this Fall and participating in our Future Star and Star programs. You have all been fantastic as to your patience as we navigate the evolving COVID-19 situation. It has not been easy for parents, coaches and skaters alike but we are glad that we can make skating happen for all of you and that the joy of skating continues to grow.
That being said, Rideau Skating Club could use your support. We are hoping to fundraise $2500.
There are two options that we would like you to consider
- A direct donation to the club (see right)
- Contribute sing FlipGive. When you sign up and buy everyday gift cards or purchase online through Flipgive, between 1%-5% of the value is donated to the club. Participating companies include everyday stores such as Loblaws, Freshco, Chapters, Starbucks, and OldNavy.
Download the Flipgive app or visit www.flipgive.com. FlipGive Team Code: 2CDJM9
Note: RSC is NOT in a dire position financially due to savings made in past profitable years (we are planning for a loss of 25K this year and we have the savings to cover it). However the Fall Program is falling a little more short than expected with the reduction of skaters on the ice from 15 skaters to 8 skaters.
We hope you consider participating in our fundraising efforts.
NOTE: As a non-profit organization (not an official charity) we are not able to issue official donation receipts for charitable tax credits.
