Mission

Every child is unique, and each has an undeniable right to explore his or her individual talents. However, it takes more than desire, love and diligence to excel. Talented students often lack the financial assistance necessary for achieving full development -- including reaching their Olympic dreams. With that, the purpose of the Wheaton Ice Skating Academy Fund is to:
  • Find and develop the talent of every child no matter their family’s financial circumstance
  • Provide a financial base for productive training, while minimizing the effect of ever-rising costs -- whether for ice rental, costumes, travel expenses, etc.
  • Be a successful establishment for the improvement of talented young athletes
  • Keep an eye on the future, by providing financial support for training and development while a skater attends an undergraduate education
  • And, ultimately, to assist in the achievement of a skater’s World Figure Skating and Olympic goals
 
Your donation is invaluable. Just a small amount provides young skaters with both training and inspiration, and can immediately impact the next generation of United States champions in upcoming World Figure Skating Championships and Olympic Games. When coupled with financial aid, your donation becomes a young talent’s key to success. All donations are 100 percent tax-deductable and will cover a wide range of skating expenses, including:
  • Skating equipment (skates, blades, etc.)
  • Ice fees
  • Test and competition fees
  • Costume design and creation
  • Music research and editing
  • Program choreography
  • Partial financial support during a skater’s undergraduate education
