NBSC Fundraising 2023-24
Nickel Blades Skating Club is excited to present the 2023/2024 fundraising plan. The following campaigns present our StarSkaters and their families with a variety of opportunities throughout the year to earn valuable credits toward their end-of-year fundraising obligation. Fundraising credits will also be available for volunteer hours toward competition and special NBSC events, so stay tuned for more opportunities to participate in club activities!
The fundraising obligations for Star 1+ is now $200 per skater and for PreStar it is $100. A second skater in the family will be charged an additional $50. Then, for each additional skater $25 to a maximum of $300.
We are also implementing the following additional options to help everyone meet their obligations in an easier format.
Volunteer Credits: To be applied like Bingo Credits. Bingo will receive 75 credits per session attended. Event (i.e., trivia night) and Competition volunteers will receive 25 credits per 2 hour session up to a max of 100 credits.
Fundraising Incentives: For every $100 over your obligation you receive a $25 credit towards next season registration for that Skater.

NBSC is registered with FlipGive, the shopping rewards app where members and their families can shop online at one of FlipGive’s many partners. Purchases made through FlipGive earns cashback credit toward your skater’s fundraising obligation.
Save up and collect those empty beer and liquor bottles from family and friends. Money that is earned from redeeming bottles and cans can be sent to the club, where the amount can be directly taken off the skater’s fundraising obligation.
