Players Helping Players II
by Randy Stafford
We at the USRA are still pleasantly surprised at the results of last year's Players Helping Players
campaign. We really didn't know what to expect from our first yearlong, association-wide fundraising effort, but it quickly became clear that there are many people who love our sport and want to help us reach our goals through their charitable gifts. The donations that we received
far exceeded our expectations, and we thank everyone who took part in last year's campaign.
As promised, listed in the sidebar at right are the specific major areas to which those dollars were allocated. In addition, all of the more general service, growth and development areas have also been directly aided through these donations.
As we know, giving to the USRA benefits the sport in many ways. Again this year, we will be offering a revised benefits package that will personally benefit you as a donor, at levels similar to the previous
campaign [see below].
So, as the end of the tax year approaches, I am asking you to please include the USRA in your regular, year-end charitable giving. Bound elsewhere in the hard copy issue, you’ll find a card (or you can download a .pdf now) for your convenience in designating any preferences you may have, and we hope you'll complete and mail it back to the USRA office during the holidays.
Or you can donate online, at www.usrastore.com
under the "Make a Donation" category. If you'll support your sport with your gifts, we will renew our promise to be very diligent and responsible in putting those monies to the best use on behalf of racquetball.
