USTA helps members invest in themselves by matching contributions at Annual Conference
Why every dollar counts to the future of recreational sports
It is one of the most beautiful compensations of this life that no person can sincerely try to help another without helping themselves. —Ralph Waldo Emerson
Each year, the NIRSA Foundation Annual Membership Giving Campaign strives to raise over $20,000 through individual contributions. The size of your gift does not matter, but the impact of your gift and your opportunity to see the impact makes a difference. The NIRSA Foundation succeeds because of YOU and others like you!
The NIRSA Foundation Board of Directors is proud to be participating in the $1 Million Milestone Campaign and the fourth year of the Be a Star Annual Giving Campaign. Since its inception in 1992, the NIRSA Foundation has raised over $900,000 in cash and pledges for the future of recreational sports. The goal of the $1 Million Milestone Campaign is to bring the total amount of money raised beyond $1 million by December 2010.
The NIRSA Foundation is working to develop resources necessary to assure a quality future for recreational sports. Every gift made to the NIRSA Foundation brings us closer to the ultimate goal. You can help the NIRSA Foundation reach its goal—our goal—in many ways, but there will be a special opportunity to effectively double your contribution at the 2008 NIRSA Annual Conference & Recreational Sports Exposition. The United States Tennis Association, for the third consecutive year, will match the total of all contributions given at the Annual Conference, up to $15,000!
Today, the future begins. Your tax-deductible gift will support educational and scholarly opportunities that benefit our profession. All gifts are cumulative and as you continue to give, you move up in category levels. Contributions will be recognized in the Recreational Sports Directory and on the NIRSA Foundation website at the following Levels of Giving:
- Leadership Level: $10,000+
- President Level: $5,000
- Executive Level: $2,500
- Platinum Level: $1,000
- Gold Level: $500
- Silver Level: $250
- Bronze Level: $100
- Participant Level: $25
The NIRSA Foundation is about the development of future opportunities. It’s about education. It’s about tomorrow. It’s about you, the NIRSA Member.
