Help the IFSA - with AmazonSmile!
You can easily help the IFSA generate donations by activating your AmazonSmile account today!
By activating your AmazonSmile account and designating the IFSA as your charity of choice, any eligible purchases will automatically generate a donation to the IFSA. With just a few clicks you can help us enhance the sport of competitive Freeride. If everyone in our Freeride community took the time to use AmazonSmile, the IFSA could generate EPIC amounts of donations!
Here are a few reasons how the IFSA will put donation dollars to use:
- Add 10 staffing hours per week to better address our growing workload
- Add to prizing money for FWQ 4* events
- Support training and certification programs for judges, coaches, and technical directors
- Supplement the budget for traveling judges to foster consistent judging
- Produce photos + videos at IFSA Junior Nationals and FWQ 4* events
