A Letter From Our President

Posted in

One of the many wonderful things about Shasta Disabled Sports (SDS) is how much we accomplish each year with very little funding. That is mostly due to the dedicated hours of volunteer time that Board members and other volunteers contribute to every event we host. We can especially thank members like Robin, Aaron, and Donna for that. They answer phones, check email, manage our website, and keep in touch with all of our friends and supporters that join us at our events. Few are aware that despite all of this work, SDS has no paid staff. We also don’t have an office and all of the expenses that would come with that.

However, one major expense that we do have is our insurance. Given the nature of the activities we offer, such as skiing, rafting, and rock climbing, insurance is a necessary expense, even though our safety record is exemplary. This year our insurance will cost $5200.00.

Because of this large annual expense, over the years the Board of Directors has considered the need to charge various fees for our activities. Each time this option is discussed, we keep concluding that event fees will discourage participation by many people in the community, which would defeat the purpose of offering our events in the first place. We have always felt strongly about including everyone in our events no matter what; that’s what we’re all about! So, we periodically need to appeal to the members of Shasta Disabled Sports and the community, as I’m doing now, to help us with those costs that make our services possible.

Our primary source of income for insurance is our membership donations. Please consider renewing your membership with a gift of $25, or join us if you aren’t already a member of Shasta Disabled Sports. Membership dues help pay our insurance costs, and we cannot operate if we can’t cover that expense. And, if you can, consider making a more substantial donation (such as through our Gold Sponsorship program) to help us cover costs and keep our programs going strong.

Thank you. With your contributions and the many hours that our volunteers put in, we can continue to offer inspiring recreational activities for people in the area who would not otherwise have those opportunities.

Merle Anderson, President
Shasta Disabled Sports USA
