Imagine Gymnastics Club (IGC) is a non-profit club that leans on the generosity and kindness of its families and sponsors. Without you, none of this would be possible! From our humble beginnings to now, IGC is so thankful for the love and support that we receive!
Fundraising: Your Impact
Why is fundraising necessary? Fundraising is an integral part of IGC. It helps to offset program costs and assists the club in buying new equipment, which helps us teach your children in a more fun & efficient way. All children registered with IGC are required to sell a minimum of $50 worth of 50/50 cash raffle tickets for each session they are registered in. The IGC Cash Raffle is tremendously important to our operations, with the potential to raise a sizeable amount of money each year for the club. IGC typically has a casino fundraiser during the competition year. Competitive athletes have mandatory fundraising commitments throughout the year, to help keep their costs down as well.
We want to thank our gymnastics parents for their efforts! It does not go unnoticed. $50 of raffle tickets may feel small and insignificant, but rest assured - it's effect is not small at all! YOU - our parents and athletes - are what keeps this incredible club moving forward! YOU are the ones buying our awesome equipment! Each and every one of YOU has a hand in the success of IGC; getting our girls to Provincials, and eventually to Nationals. Your impact is not small. It is enormous!
When you walk through the doors at IGC, you feel a sense of community, of small-town charm, of collective ownership and pride. We look after each other, and we help our neighbors when they're in need. The communities of Olds and Carstairs, Alberta, are very generous. Giving back feels so good, especially when you can see the palpable difference that it makes in the lives of our children. Hats off to YOU!
Our Approach to Fundraising
We believe in exercising our variety! In addition to our 50/50 Cash Raffles and casino fundraising event, we are always on the look-out for exciting ways to keep our costs down and buy fun new gymnastics equipment.
IGC is governed by a parent-run, volunteer board. We are proud gymnastics parents, just like you, and we have a vested interest in making IGC the absolute best club that it can be! Excellence doesn’t just happen; it’s curated. We all come from different backgrounds and have different skill sets because diversity makes us stronger. We work together to crunch the numbers, consider the details and plan for the future.
IGC is operated by paid staff under the general direction of the Board of Directors. The Board of Directors are voted into office in accordance with the Club’s constitution at the Annual General Meeting (AGM) held each fall. The board is responsible for the overall governance and guidance of the Club.
In addition to the Board of Directors, parent volunteers may serve on various committees that deal with certain aspects of the organization, including but not limited to: fundraising for special projects, corporate sponsorship, etc.
