Your Donation Matters!

Your support is always welcome. The direction of Rochester Sports Foundation (RSF) came from the need to plan and guide facility needs into reality. The majority of our work is done by volunteer folks from the community - with some administrative support. How can your donations help?

1) Donations of items to the Rochester Sports Banquet auction help to make the event a fun and profitable event. 100% of the dollars raised at the auction go directly into the RSF grant program where once a year the RSF Board reviews those applicants and can contribute up to $10,000 annually. To donate an item contact Ed at RSF.

2) We will have capital projects at times which will be listed on the web site. If you happen to have a particular facility or sport you wish to contribute you may do so through the RSF and receive a charitable gift receipt.

3) While our operations budget is low - it needs to be funded to sustain our efforts within the community. Any type of monetary donation to the organization is greatly appreciated.
