Adam is striving for the top of the sport but he cannot do it alone. Every year, he encounters thousands of dollars worth of expenses from coaches, choreographers, trainers and others committed to his pursuit of an Olympic gold medal, in addition to the cost of costumes, ice, travel and other necessities.
Individuals can support Adam by making a tax-deductible donation to the New England Amateur Skating Foundation (NEASF). Simply print the sponsor form, which states that you would like your donation used for Adam's skating expenses, and mail it to the address listed below along with a check made payable to the NEASF.
Companies and organizations that are interested in a professional partnership with Adam are asked to contact Adam's agent David Baden of IMG at (212) 774-4336 instead of donating through the NEASF.
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 contributions is to be treated.
