What is The New England Amateur Skating Foundation? The NEASF is a tax-exempt organization under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code. The foundation’s mission is to help competitive skaters defray their expenses. With so many skaters in need of financial support, NEASF offers sponsors the opportunity to make charitable donations to a general fund, or to make charitable donations to sponsor a specific skater(s).
What percentage of your donation actually goes to the skaters? 100 percent! The NEASF charges no fees, and there are no deductions of any kind. Volunteers pay all of the operating expenses of the Foundation. All donations are used to help the skaters. How does the NEASF work? Donations are received from both individuals and corporations. The monies collected are used to defray skating-only related expenses, such as ice time, coaching and choreography fees, costumes, off-ice training, equipment, and travel expenses. How are the funds allocated? The NEASF Allocations Committee reviews its information about a skater and allocates funds accordingly. The information reviewed includes comments and recommendations of clubs, professionals and donors, as well as the experience and competitive level of the skater. How does the skater receive money from the fund? The skaters must submit their bill or bills signed by the skaters as well as their skating professional (coach). If a skater is under 18 years of age, the bill(s) must be signed by a parent and skating professional (coach). Payment is made directly to the vendor or provider of services. Are donations tax-deductible? The New England Amateur Skating Foundation is a tax-exempt organization organized under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code. Donations, therefore, are usually deductible. You should consult with your tax accountant or advisor as to how your contribution is to be treated. What can I do if I have further questions?
