Fundraising

Fundraising
Monthly dues alone do not cover all of the necessary costs associated with club operation.  Our fundraising obligation minimizes increases to monthly dues.  Fundraising for the year is due by May 15th.  If fundraising is not paid by this date, the amount will be automatically withdrawn with monthly dues on July 1st.  If you give 30 days’ notice and have not met your fundraising commitment, you will owe the amount of fundraising prorated to the months participated upon withdrawal. Families with fundraising amounts in excess of their minimum will have 25% of the excess credited to their Team Unify account.

New families in Red, White, and Blue groups will not be required to fundraise.  Every returning family will be enrolled in fundraising, regardless of group. Their monthly commitment will be prorated each month in which a member participates in a CMSA practice or event. 

New families in Age Group 1, Age Group 2, Age Group 3, and Senior 1 groups will be without fundraising commitments for three months so that they may become familiarized with the process. Their annual commitment would be $150 per family.  This exemption does not apply to an existing family with an older sibling on the team.

The Board of Directors has set the fundraising requirements each family is required to raise or be assessed at the following amounts:

  • No fundraising for new families in Red, White, and Blue Groups
  • $100 – Returning families in Red, White, or Blue Groups
  • $150 – New families in Age Group 1, Age Group 2, Age Group 3, and Senior 1 groups
  • $225 – Returning families in Age Group 1, Age Group 2, Age Group 3, and Senior 1 groups
  • $250 – Returning families in Junior and Senior groups
