CJC runs several fundraisers during the year to help raise the dollars needed to purchase and maintain boats and equipment and to continue improving our program.
During our yearly Annual Fund Campaign which takes place late in the year, CJC asks that all families contribute to the club fund in any amount they can. In addition to the obvious financial benefit, maximum participation of our member families increases our ability to successfully obtain grants from outside donor organizations. Grant providers always consider the percentage of members that support their own organization before determining if a funding request will be approved. For this reason, a donation of as little as $5 will help our efforts.
If you shop at Amazon.com, you can contribute to our fundraising efforts through the Amazon Smile program. All you have to do is modify the way you visit Amazon by going to smile.amazon.com and when prompted (which only happens the first time you visit the site) select "Colorado Junior Crew" as the organization that you would like your purchases to benefit. After that, you'll see the same Amazon.com selection that you always do. Check-out, Amazon Prime and just about everything else works just the same. So help us earn .5% on every purchase through Amazon!!
CJC is fortunate to have the opportunity to volunteer to work at the fabulous Ironman triathlons and related events at the Boulder Reservoir during the summer. In exchange for our time and manpower, our volunteer commitment earns grant money for CJC from the Ironman Foundation.
