What is the New England Amateur Skating Foundation (NEASF)?
The NEASF is a non-profit organization whose purpose is to assist competitive amateur skaters. All Regional, Sectional, National and International skaters are eligible for assistance.
How does the NEASF work?
Donations are received by NEASF from both individuals and corporations. The money collected is then used to defray skating related expenses. These expenses include items such as ice time, lessons, costumes, equipment, travel expenses, ballet, choreography, competition fees, or off-ice strength and conditioning training.
How does a skater receive money from the fund?
The skater must submit a bill or bills signed by the skater or the skater's parent if under the age of 18 and the skaters head coach. Payments are made directly to the vendor or the provider of the services.
What percentage of my donation actually goes to the skater?
100%: The NEASF charges no fees for their services. There are no deductions of any kind since volunteers pay all of the Foundation's operating expenses. All donations are used to help the skaters.
Are my donations tax deductible?
The NEASF is tax-exempt under 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.
