Fees and Fundraising – Where Does the Money Go?

It’s that time of year again: We’re at the third week of term 2. The raffle is just behind us and the Allianz Resolution Run is just around the corner. It’s fair enough that our members will ask, “where does the money go?”. This post explains.

Renmore Gymnastics is a non-profit volunteer run organisation with a professional coaching staff. Our goal is to meet each member where they are at and to guide, encourage, and challenge them in meeting their own gymnastics goals. We operate from a large 8,000 square foot warehouse on the edge of Galway City. Including 3 full-time coaches, we currently have a staff of about 15 who run the training sessions across every age and level from tumble tots through to teens and adults. Most of our members are in the recreational programme which includes skills from the five disciplines in our competitive programme: Womens Artistic (WAG), Mens Artistic (MAG), Rhythmic, Tumbling, and Acrobatics.

Last week 595 members attended and trained a total of 1591 hours. Some of those hours were spent bouncing on our new trampoline which was funded in part by the Galway Sports Partnership, and by the fundraising activities carried out by the club.

Where the money goes...

We have 3 fundraising events in the year: the raffle (please return your card if you still have it!!!), the race, and the show.

We thank all members for paying your term fees promptly. We rely on them for running your club. The chart below shows where the funds go.
