We come from a family of seven children, and as you can imagine money is tight. Thanks to the large support we have received over the last two years, our skating journey is now mostly funded by people like you! We can barely begin to express the amount of gratitude we feel for this! If you are one of the generous people that help to make our dreams possible, whether from monetary donation or from sharing our programs, we would both like to thank you from the bottom of our hearts! None of this would be possible without you!
You can also support Oona and Gage's skating by contributing a tax-deductible donation to the New England Amateur Skating Foundation (NEASF). Please make your check payable to the NEASF and include a separate note stating that you wish your contribution to go towards the skating expenses of Oona and Gage Brown. You can use the form below to contribute.
ABOUT THE 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.
The mission of the New England Amateur Skating Foundation is to help competitive skaters by defraying some of their ever-increasing expenses. With many skaters in need of support, the Foundation, a tax-exempt organization, offers the opportunity of sponsorship to anyone who would like to help.
Donations are received from both individuals and corporations. The monies collected are then used to defray skating-related expenses such as ice time, lessons, costumes, equipment, competition fees, strength training, ballet, off-ice classes and travel expenses.
The NEASF Allocations Committee reviews its information about a skater and allocates funds accordingly. Information reviewed includes comments and recommendations of clubs, professionals and donors, as well as the experience and competitive level of the skater.
Ninety Eight Percent of your donation goes to the skater. The NEASF charges no fees and there are no deductions of any kind but there is a 2% allocation for administrative and compliance costs. All of the operating expenses of the Foundation are paid by volunteers. All donations are used to help the skaters.
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.
