Aikido in Fredericksburg is a 501(c)3 nonprofit educational corporation. We use donations to support our educational mission. We try to reach out to as many children and adults as possible and your donations make this a reality.
We have also set up two separate funds, allowing you to choose where your donation goes, if you wish. We are very appreciative of any donations we receive, so we can continue our work with the community.
Your donations are 100% tax deductible!
We have created a world-class training center for Aikido and to support the local community, the “Shin Dojo.” Contributions to this fund help us operate and maintain this new headquarters.
As part of our outreach efforts, providing scholarships and educational grants will further our charitable purposes and make Aikido education available to a broader cross-section of the community. In particular, we hope to be able to offer scholarships to at-risk youths. Eligibility is determined by the Board of Directors, or a subcommittee, in a nondiscriminatory fashion to those persons that have shown an interest in Aikido and a demonstrated need for economic support. You can check our Community Page to see the organizations we work with.
Donations that are not applied to either of the above funds will be out toward the organization’s most pressing needs at the time of the donation.
Your donation is tax-deductible to the extent allowed by law.
Donations over $50.00 will be acknowledged with a letter for your tax purposes.
If you would like to donate items, labor, or time, we are most appreciative. Below, you can find the Dojo’s current wish list.
