We are kicking off the NJFA 2017-2018 fundraising campaign and we need your help!
Last years campaign was very successful we were able to purchase a brand new printer, as you can see we are re-painting with the funds that were donated. This year our annual goal is $ 50,000 with our most immediate need being to add additional coaches. As you can see our class sizes have doubled and we would like to make sure that all students are receiving the best professional coaching available.This will most likely require us to explore the availability of international coaches. Your generosity will make a difference in our community by allowing us to continue our focus with respect to developing our student-athletes both on and off the strip enabling them to become strong leaders by utilizing their confidence and character. Without the assistance of community-minded individuals like you, we would not be able to serve our fencers and our community each year.
By participating in NJFA’s programs, our student-athletes not only learn how to be good winners, how to accept defeat but also how their actions directly influence the results they are looking to achieve. They learn to evaluate their attitudes about themselves and others, overcome fears, think strategically and solve problems. These are skill sets that will not only serve them well in the fencing community but in life as they mature into fine young adults. Over the last several years, members of New Jersey Fencing Alliance have graduated from some of the finest universities in the U.S., including: Columbia, Princeton, Duke, NYU, Notre Dame, Yale, St. Johns, Rutgers, Ohio State and Temple. Last December we had a saber fencer commit to fencing Division 1 at Boston College.
We ask that you thoughtfully consider making a commitment to support our annual appeal by making a donation of $100 or more today. Since New Jersey Fencing Alliance is a designated 501-C3 organization, many corporations some of which you may work for will match your contribution doubling your gift. Your donation will be used to address our general operating expenses and enhance NJFA’s fencing programs. Your donation is 100% tax deductible. Here is a comprehensive list of companies that offer a matching gift: Companies with matching gifts.
Every donation makes a difference, regardless of size. Together, we will continue to develop our student-athletes to be great fencers and strong leaders.
