As you may or may not know, all club costs come out of the AKRFC general operating budget which is largely supported by membership dues.
We are always looking for opportunities to elevate the athleticism and competitiveness of our Club by being able to fund more rugby related activities (new equipment, clinics, coaching staff, etc) as well as non-rugby related expenditures (seed for the field, supplies to maintain our shed, etc).
We would love to hear your ideas and we want to make the process as smooth as possible for everyone, so we are providing a list of questions that will need to be answered.
Please fill out as completely as able. Please don’t be overwhelmed, some items can be updated during the planning process, but please consider each item.
