We currently have a special time-limited fundraiser: Wrap the Van 2018:
We are fundraising to wrap our van with graphics including our contact information to promote our programs and renting our skates and team of instructors. We waited to wrap it until we were using it often enough to justify the additional cost and when we had something to share with other cars on the road.
The cost will cover the hiring of a graphic artist to create a wrap of our logo and details (on an oversized van), and the full graphics to show to the world what we are up to. Your small and large donations will allow us to create a great story to share with everyone on the road, and at events. (Right now we just tell people to go to the white van!). Thank you for your support.

For more information on our organization and donating in general, please read below.
Skate Journeys is a 501 (c) 3 non-profit educational and charitable organization. All donations to Skate Journeys are tax deductible. Our classes, camps, after school programs and weekend classes provide program fees that attend to a large part of our annual budget, but we must rely on donations to fiscally thrive due to the plethora of free and low cost programs we offer. We are fortunate to have a large staff of volunteers, but we also have a paid staff to manage various necessary aspects.
We are both committed and successful at providing skating to some of the lowest poverty levels in the state. We also provide free instructor training, Youth Development and specialty classes in areas that would not otherwise be served. Grants and donations help us improve our services while keeping fees as low as possible to serve a diverse population.
Skate Journeys offers instructor apprentice programs including one for junior instructors (12-18 years). Junior instructors have the opportunity to acquire job skills, provide community service, and do something they love. At Skate Journeys we actively strive to look for opportunities to develop our students’ full potential, especially among our youth.
With your donation, we can bring skating to more people, and help everyone enjoy all the benefits that skating has to offer: empowering confidence, inspiring learning, building community, improving fitness and developing youth.
We prefer this method of donation, it is secure, takes all credit cards and the donation it is linked into our Accounting Software in case you need another copy of your donation at a later date. You may also let us know if your employer will match your donation via this method.
