News from ISHA: Donors Stepped Up in Covid Year

By Seth Masia

In 2020, donors dug deep to help ISHA weather trying times. Fundraising set a new record.

For the seventh year in a row, donors to the nonprofit International Skiing History Association set a record for unrestricted donations. Thanks to the generosity of ISHA members, individual donations in 2020 rose 15.6 percent over the previous best year (2019).

The 2020 Fundraising Campaign raised a total of $136,857 in gifts from 443 individuals. The ISHA Board of Directors thanks Christin Cooper and Penny Pitou for leading the annual drive.

Fifty-four companies and organizations contributed $35,000. Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, many ski industry firms lost customer traffic, with the result that ISHA’s corporate sponsorship revenue fell 33 percent for the year. However, total unrestricted donations rose .3 percent.

In 2020, membership dues covered about 18.6 percent of ISHA’s annual costs for publishing the magazine, maintaining the website, producing the annual ISHA Awards program, and maintaining communications with the membership. The balance of the budget was met through charitable contributions, corporate sponsorships, bulk sales of the magazine to our museum partners, foundation grants and revenue from investment funds.

On the expense side of the ledger, 67 percent of the budget went to support ISHA programs (magazine and website publishing, awards program). The remainder went to administration (member service, bookkeeping and audit, fundraising, member recruitment).

ISHA is a 501( c )( 3 ) public charity, eligible to receive grants from family and community foundations, donor-advised funds and corporate matching programs, in addition to direct contributions from individuals.

If you’re interested in supporting a specific ISHA program, please contact president Seth Masia at (303) 594-1657. If your firm would like to be a corporate sponsor, contact Peter Kirkpatrick at (541) 488-1933.
