Figure skating is a very demanding sport financially. My mother is a single mom working two jobs in effort to support my figure skating dream. Every extra little bit I can get is extremely helpful, appreciated, and goes a very long way towards my skating future.
I would like to thank everyone who has helped sponsor me in this amazing journey, your kindness and generosity in helping me get the training I need to achieve my goals.
You can also support my skating by making a tax-deductible donation to the New England Amateur Skating Foundation (NEASF). Information on the Foundation is included below.
Make your check payable to the foundation. With your donation, please also include a note stating that you suggest your financial contribution be put towards the skating expenses of Paige.

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 Foundation is to assist 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, may be deductible. You should consult with your tax accountant or advisor as to how your contributions are to be treated.
