What are the SVSEF fundraising goals?

For the 2009-2010 season our goal is to raise at least $465,000. Our primary fundraising vehicles are: the Annual Fund, the Fall Wild Game Dinner & Auction, and the Janss Pro-Am Classic. At this time we are not drawing from our Endowment which we are trying to grow $5 million. Our scholarship money is raised through our Champions of the Foundation drives at the Game Dinner and Janss Pro-Am. Scholarships (nearly $200,000 per season) are awarded directly to the athletes to support tuition and travel costs. There is no other program of our kind in the nation, which offers this amount of support. We could not do it without our generous donors.

How does the SVSEF use my donation?

General donations, donations to the Annual Fund and proceeds from the Fall Game Dinner and Janss Pro-Am fund SVSEF general operations. These include, but are not limited to: program equipment and support, facility expenses, vehicle maintenance, insurance (includes: liability, property and Worker's Compensation insurance), utilities and administrative costs. Champions of the Foundation donations fund tuition and travel costs for the athletes as well as general operations.

Can I donate to a specific program or team?

Yes. If you would like your donation to impact one of our specific teams: Alpine, Cross Country, Freestyle or Snowboard, you can make that designation. This donation will be used to fulfill the needs of that program as determined by the Program Director. Please designate your preference when filling out the forms or contact the Development Office.

Who do I contact if I have questions?
