Ski & Snowboard Swap
Each winter, Ski & Snowboard Club Vail helps more than 600 children develop character, courage and commitment through their participation in our winter snowsport programs. Making SSCV affordable to all is our objective, thus fundraising is integral to the success of the organization. Individual and corporate donations directly enable us to fulfill our mission of inspiring character growth and excellence.
Request for Support of Annual Giving
Thanks to your tax-deductible donations, Ski & Snowboard Club Vail is able to help hundreds of young individuals pursue their on snow dreams.
Participation in the Annual Campaign is critical, as much of what we are able to accomplish at SSCV is made possible by a healthy annual giving program. It is our goal to achieve 100% participation in annual giving from our membership. We strive to have every family make an Annual Campaign gift of personal significance â€“ whether that is $100 or a Leadership Council gift, â€œEvery Snowflake Counts.â€ After last yearâ€™s successes and recognition by USSA as Club of the Year, SSCV will continue to advance every aspect of the organization â€œTo the Next Level.â€ We ask you to join us in our commitment by taking SSCV â€œTo the Next Levelâ€ by making an annual gift for the first time or increasing your gift from last year. Participation in this challenge demonstrates your belief and support of SSCVâ€™s Mission, Vision and Values of â€œCharacter, Courage, and Commitment."
Gifts of $1,500 or more are recognized as Leadership Council Members. Enjoy the benefits of Leadership Council Membership, including an invitation(s) to the Larkspur dinner and First Tracks breakfast and ski day on Vail Mountain.
