LETTER TO DONORS & FUND HOLDER
Following the introduction of the new Grant Award Scheme most people have understood how it operates. I am very happy to talk to anyone if they require more detail. We now need to look for donations to support the work of the trust and anyone willing to assist with fundraising will be most welcome. The trust has grant aided many individuals and winter sports organization with millions of pounds over the last half century. Whatever happens in the future the trust will always be there supporting competitors and snow sport disciplines.
We are looking to bring the trust into the modern methods of fundraising such as crowd funding and using modern media methods. The success our sport has had in the last year has shown what can be achieved but in the current climate we cannot expect any financial support from government so the future relies on us, the people who take part and enjoy the sport. I therefore appeal to you who read this, snow sports needs your help whatever the level of your ability there will be a way you can help to raise funds.
We would like to assure you that we will continue to provide financial support to aspiring British skiers and snow boarders. Please do view the rest of the web site for more information especially the Grant Award Scheme where it says donors can sponsor a grant award applicant and see the means by which you can get involved.
