Why are we a Non-Profit Society with a board of directors? As a non-profit society with a board, we may be a member of TriBC (provides insurance and general governance). We may also apply and receive gaming funds. Currently we receive $29,000 from gaming. This represents approx. 15% of our over all budget. We primarily use these funds to reduce the cost of the program.
Why should you join the board? Cause it’s awesome. Yes, we are very fortunate to have an extremely positive board of directors. Cause you can help Exceleration grow and provide more spots for kids. Cause you get feed at board meetings. Cause you get to see a bit behind the scenes of our awesome and extremely unique club. Cause Kristine will likely give you cookies.
