USJF President’s Life Membership Club
Three days a week, or maybe its four or five, we step through the doorway of the dojo. We bow, we sit, we listen, we sweat. Right when we think we’ve given all we can, we’re called upon to give a little more. And we do. Then we bow again, and if still able to walk, we slowly rise off the tatami. By our Sensei’s guidance and our own will to succeed we have handed over our minds and bodies to Judo. In return Judo gives strength to our spirits, muscles and morality.
Now, Judo and the United States Judo Federation are asking you to give more, by contributing to the USJF President’s Life Membership Club. The President’s Club has been established to receive and manage charitable donations made to the USJF. All donations, which are tax deductible (excluding service value received – check with your accountant), are to be deposited into a special Endowment Fund whose principal will be maintained, conserved, and invested so as to generate interest. Monies accumulated from the Endowment Fund will be used to support the development of Judo both local and nationally.
The President’s Club is a Life Membership Program designed to recognize individuals and corporations that believe in the mission of the USJF. The USJF mission is to affect positively the character of everyone associated with Judo through the principle of mutual benefit and welfare.
There are five levels of individual contribution and three levels of corporate sponsorship. Individuals are deemed Charter Members for a donation of $500, Executive Members for $1000, Presidential Members for $3000, Executive V.I.P. Members for $5000, or Presidential V.I.P. Members for $10,000. A corporation can become a Charter Sponsor for $5000, and Executive Sponsor for $10,000, or a Presidential Sponsor for $20,000.
Each level of contribution comes with exclusive benefits for its sponsors including special recognition in the USJF official publication, USJF News, Presidents Life Membership Club Web page, and at the annual USJF sponsored Junior National Tournament. By donating to the President’s Life Membership Club you and your Dojo will be nationally recognized for its continued commitment to Judo.
