“The Elmvale Bears Sledge Hockey Club has recently gained Non-For-Profit designation as of April 2014. This is a gigantic step forward for our organization and will unquestionably be a very beneficial building block in the future success of our team(s). With the ability to grow without financial restrictions, the Bears will have the capacity to support player participation, increase community awareness, and promote the game of sledge hockey.
With becoming a Non-For-Profit Organization, our club is now a legal entity which is separate from its members. This means that the funds and profits generated for and from the club must be utilized to further the goals of the organization. As a result, this solidifies the existence of our sporting club and places emphasis on various aspects of our organization; the development and sustainability of structure, security, stability, and opportunity.”
