ISHA Annual Report, Donor Roll

Another Record Year for ISHA Fundraising

In 2019, charitable giving and corporate sponsorships together rose 14.1 percent over the previous record.

For the sixth year in a row, donors to the nonprofit International Skiing History Association (ISHA) set a record for unrestricted donations. Thanks to the generosity of ISHA members, individual donations and corporate contributions together rose to $176,466 — 14.1 percent over last year’s record. Donors beat ISHA’s 2019 budget goal by 10 percent.

The 2019 fundraising campaign raised a total of $123,446 in gifts from 391 individuals. The amount contributed beats the 2018 record by 0.7 percent. The ISHA Board of Directors thanks Christin Cooper-Taché for leading the annual drive, for the third year, and we welcome the return of John McMurtry to the post of vice president for fundraising.

Five dozen companies and organizations contributed $53,000, up an astonishing 32 percent over 2018. These firms (listed as corporate sponsors) support ISHA’s mission generously, and deserve our support in return.

In 2019, membership dues covered about 20 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, 66 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, contact president Seth Masia at (303) 594-1657. If your firm would like to be a corporate sponsor, contact Peter Kirkpatrick at (541) 944.3095. Listed here are the donors who supported ISHA’s mission with tax-free donations and gift memberships above and beyond membership dues in 2019. —Seth Masia, President
