YOU can help Chase achieve his dreams via one of the following options:
1) VIA the U.S. Athletic Foundation (USAthleticFoundation.org)
2) VIA the New England Amateur Skating Foundation. You can support Chase’s skating by making a tax-deductible donation to the New England Amateur Skating Foundation (NEASF). Please make your check payable to the NEASF and include a note stating that you wish your contribution to go towards the skating expenses of Chase Belmontes. The address for contributions is at the end of this page.
The NEASF is a non-profit organization whose purpose is to assist competitive amateur skaters. All Regional, Sectional, National and International skaters are eligible for assistance.
The mission of the New England Amateur Skating Foundation is to help competitive skaters by defraying some of their ever-increasing expenses. With many skaters in need of support, the Foundation, a tax-exempt organization, offers the opportunity of sponsorship to anyone who would like to help.
Donations are received from both individuals and corporations. The monies collected are then used to defray skating-related expenses such as ice time, lessons, costumes, equipment, competition fees, strength training, ballet, off-ice classes and travel expenses.
The NEASF Allocations Committee reviews its information about a skater and allocates funds accordingly. Information reviewed includes comments and recommendations of clubs, professionals and donors, as well as the experience and competitive level of the skater.
The skater must submit a bill or bills signed by the skater as well as the head coach. If the skater is under 18 years of age, the bills must be signed by a parent and the head coach. Payment is made directly to the vendor or provider of the services.
One hundred percent of your donation goes to the skater. The NEASF charges no fees and there are no deductions of any kind. All of the operating expenses of the Foundation are paid by volunteers. All donations are used to help the skaters.
The NEASF is tax-exempt under 501(C)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code. Donations, therefore, are usually deductible. You should consult with your tax accountant or advisor as to how your contribution is to be treated.
