At KGTC, fundraising is one of the ways we support our annual Spirit of KGTC athlete and coach financial bursaries, as well as buy new equipment that benefits everyone from the casual users in the community who drop in, to the athletes that train here and the school physical education field trips that visit.
The largest fundraising effort that KGTC has ever undertaken is also one of our proudest accomplishments – becoming a mainstay at the Tournament Capital Centre. Used for training by sports teams and gymnasts, competitive events and community users, the KGTC facility partnered with the City of Kamloops and moved into a new facility with newly purchased equipment. Once the facility opened, our programs and role expanded. Not only are we are a gymnastics and trampoline facility, but we also teach the fundamental skills that are the basis of all sports and a life-long love of physical activity.
Many individuals, teams and classes participate in fundraisers to receive a portion (50% of proceeds – calculated from revenue and minus expenses ) which are credited to the athletes credit account. These fundraising dollars may be used to assist athletes in competition and training camp fees, KGTC Team attire, team travel (vans, buses, airline tickets, hotels, meals booked as a team through KGTC.) Money raised through fundraising activities cannot be applied to regular training program fees. Actual funds will not be dispersed to individuals directly.
If there is a specific fundraiser for a special purpose (for example, World Gymnaestrada or a Team Travel Meet), the fundraiser must be approved and coordinated with our General Manager before any advertising or promoting of the event/fundraiser. The event or fundraiser should fit into KGTC’s mission statement of providing and encouraging health, fitness and personal excellence in a safe and fun environment. The event or fundraiser must also fit into KGTC’s calendar of events and must clearly state the purpose of the fundraiser. If the fundraiser is any type of “game of chance”, KGTC must complete the gaming application and the final report is to be submitted to the General Manager in a timely fashion so as to ensure a new licence is available for another fundraising group.
