MEMBER CREDITS & FUNDRAISING

 

What are Member Credits?


Member credits are generated by participating in various fundraising opportunities, helping to keep skating affordable for Skaters in Junior Academy and Private Lessons.  Your Member Credit balance can be found in your Uplifter account.  Balances are updated periodically throughout the year as fundraising activities are completed.  Member Credits can be allocated to cover skating costs such as; registration fee, coaching fees, competitions, seminars, skating equipment (skates, competition clothing, etc.). Participating in fundraising is optional.

FundScrip Gift Card Program

Fundscrip is a fundraising program that lets you earn Member Credits on things you buy everyday like groceries, gas and other household items.

Purchase GIFT CARDS or E-Cards at face value from FundScrip’s participating retailers and a percentage of every gift card purchased is contributed towards your Member Credits. So instead of paying with cash or a debit card, you use a gift card that you purchased through our FundScrip group.  It costs you nothing extra but you earn Member Credits.
