Now, Judo and the United States Judo Federation are asking you to give more, by contributing to the USJF President’s Club Life Membership. 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 rom 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 (or with a donation of $200 to move from a regular Life Membership to a Charter Membership in the President’s Club), 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 Club Life Membership Web page, and at the annual USJF sponsored Junior National Tournament. By donating to the President’s Club Life Membership, you and your Dojo will be nationally recognized for its continued commitment to Judo.
Show your commitment and belief in the United States Judo Federation by being a member in the Presidents Club Life Membership.
