Funding Our Future!
Our Capital Development Fund is now in its second year! We now invite all members and friends to help fund our future with a donation. The HCCC Capital Development Fund is an approved project under the Ontario Sport Network (OSN) * and the National Sport Trust Fund (NSTF) * which allows a charitable tax receipt to be issued to qualifying donations.
- The Highland Community Curling Club (HCCC) was incorporated July 30, 2021 as a not-for-profit, financially independent, member-run curling club serving the London area.
- Through a lease agreement with the Highland Country Club, HCCC has exclusive use of the curling rink and ice level ante rooms. HCCC is responsible for all expenses, plus maintenance, repairs and replacement of equipment related to the operation of curling, within the leased premise.
Development Fund Purpose:
To establish a monetary reserve that may be used annually, at the discretion of our Board of Directors, to ensure the Highland Community Curling Club can meet the capital maintenance and replacement costs of aged ice-making equipment, including:
- dehumidifier (October 2021)
- evaporative condenser
- ammonia chiller
- pipes and sand floor
- in-ice graphics (centre ice logo (September 2021); custom rings x 12 (September 2022)
- ice scraper
This campaign will proceed as follows:
- Year 1: will target funds to meet operating expenses and capital expenditures as well as initial start-up expenses, and costs required to implement CoVid safety procedures and protocols to meet government requirements
- Years 2 & 3: will focus on building the capital reserve fund through activities that retain, grow, and develop our donor base within the club and local community
