Rose City Rollers is a 501c3 charitable organization, which means that you can make a tax deductible donation either online or through the mail.
How can you give?
There are a few different ways to give and help support the mission of Rose City Rollers.
A one time gift to Rose City Rollers helps us continue to empower women and girls with the hard-hitting sport of roller derby. Donations can help provide training equipment and also outreach to make roller derby more accessible to all women. Currently, we are soliciting General RCR donations as well as contributions to the Rob Lobster Memorial Scholarship Fund.
You can support Rose City Rollers every month with our new sustaining member program! Starting at just $5.00 a month, this gift will keep working each month to help support Rose City Rollers programs and skaters. Joining The Inside Track comes with some special perks, contact us to find out more about that!
Setting this up is easy! Go to the donation page and input the amount that you are interested in pledging monthly. Then just make sure to click “recurring donation”. You are all set! Or, if you are already a dues-paying member of the league and want to add a donation to your auto-pay charge, please get in touch with Development Manager Jodi Bon Jodi at firstname.lastname@example.org to set something up.
Curious what your monthly donation looks like in real time? Check this out…
$5 a month means $60 a year. This is a new set of wheels for the Rent n Roll program, our roller derby gear lending library that is free to all youth who skate with our program and also used by our new adult skaters.
$20 a month is $240 a year. This will get an entire new set of skates for Rent n Roll – boots, plates and wheels, the who shebang. A gift of $20 a month means that our skaters are skating on the best and safest gear possible.
$50 a month is $600 a year. This gift is the equivalent of 2 Junior skater’s dues, for the entire year. By pledging $50 a month, you will be able to make the roller derby dreams of two of our youth come true!
$75 a month is $900 a year. For $900, we can outfit a skater with an entirely free set of rental gear. This means helmet, pads and skates. And pay their dues for the year.
Does your employer have a matching gift program? A lot of employers will match the gifts of their employees dollar for dollar, sometimes doubling or tripling the donation. Just ask your HR department if they have an employee match program; they probably have an easy form for you to fill out. Contact email@example.com if you have any questions or need help with an employee match! Click here to see a list of national and regional companies who tend to offer employee matches.
