How Close To 100% Participation Can We Get?

It’s time for our annual fundraiser. Even if you can only afford to give $1, please do so in order to show your respect for our nonprofit educational mission.
Our goal is to have 100 donors by November 20, 2019

Aikido West belongs to all of us. In the past, 10% of the members have made 90% of the donations. Imagine if only 10% of us ever cleaned or swept the mat…

Your monthly dues pay the rent and bills, but we rely on voluntary donations in order to balance our books.

Some can afford to give more, while some can afford to give less.
The amount is not important. It is the awareness and participation which are important.

Here are some things your donations support:

  • Scholarships for members who cannot afford to pay full dues, including children

  • The continuing education of the instructor staff

  • The presence of two professional Shihan instructors

  • The ability to keep monthly dues stable, despite rising Bay Area prices

Tax deductible donations can be made by check or online at Anonymous donations may be made with cash at the desk.

We are going to have incentives for reaching specific fundraising goals, these will be announced soon!
