FUNDRAISING: yOUR iMPACT
Why is fundraising necessary? Fundraising is an integral part of OGC that helps to offset training costs and assist the club in buying new and exciting equipment. All children registered with OGC will be required to sell at least one booklet of Raffle tickets per session they are registered in (one booklet per family, per session registered); booklets are a value of $100. The OGC Cash Raffle is tremendously important to our operations, with the potential to raise a sizeable amount of money each year for the club. OGC typically has a casino fundraiser during the competition year. Competitive athletes have mandatory fundraising commitments throughout the year, to help keep their costs down as well.
We want to thank our gymnastics parents for their efforts! It does not go unnoticed. A book of raffle tickets may feel small and insignificant in your hand, but rest assured - it is not small at all! YOU - our parents and athletes - are what keeps this incredible club moving forward! YOU are the ones buying our awesome equipment! Each and every one of YOU has a hand in the success of OGC; getting our girls to Provincials, and eventually to Nationals. Your impact is not small. It is enormous!
When you walk through the doors at OGC, you feel a sense of community, of small-town charm, of collective ownership and pride. We look after each other, and we help our neighbours when they're in need. The community of Olds, Alberta, is a very generous one. Giving back feels so good, especially when you can see the palpable difference that it makes in the lives of our children. Hats off to YOU!
Thank you for your kindness, your investment, your time, and your sweat, blood, and tears!

OGC is governed by a parent-run, volunteer board. We are proud gymnastics parents, just like you, and we have a vested interest in making OGC the absolute best club that it can be! Excellence doesn’t just happen; it’s curated. We all come from different backgrounds and have different skill sets because diversity makes us stronger. We work together to crunch the numbers, consider the details and plan for the future.
OGC is operated by paid staff under the general direction of the Board of Directors. The Board of Directors are voted into office in accordance with the Club’s constitution at the Annual General Meeting (AGM) held each fall. The board is responsible for the overall governance and guidance of the Club.
In addition to the Board of Directors, parent volunteers may serve on various committees that deal with certain aspects of the organization, including but not limited to: fundraising for special projects, corporate sponsorship, etc.
