Purpose

Capital Skating Fund is a subsidiary of WFSC that supports ALL skaters in the DMV and does not require membership to WFSC. Funds are used to support the growth of skating in the region through grants towards eligible competitive skaters and organizations hosting events to grow the sport.


History

First established in 1989 as the Washington Figure Skating Education and Development Fund (WSFEDF) with proceeds from sponsoring the USFSA 1989 National Championships in Baltimore and the 2003 World Figure Skating Championships in Washington, DC, the WSFEDF changed their name to the Capitol Skating Fund (CSF) in 2006.  For the past 31 years, the WSFEDF/CSF has supported skaters and skating organizations throughout the Washington DC, Maryland and Virginia region as a 501c3 nonprofit entity. In 2020, the CSF has become part of the WFSC and the tradition carries on with management of the Fund by a select committee of figure skating enthusiasts from the WFSC including national and international officials, skaters and parents with years of vested interest in the sport of figure skating. For more information and to apply for support from the WFSC/CSF,

As a 501(c)(3), WFSC depends on the generosity of individuals and corporate donors to fund our activities. Funds will be used towards:

  • Assisting eligible skaters competing in freestyle, ice dance, solo dance, adult skating in defraying the cost of traveling to and competing in Nationals
  • Assisting eligible teams in our synchro teams (Team Ashburn and DC EDGE) in defraying the cost of traveling to and competing in Nationals
  • Defraying the costs of social events, including Annual Meeting, Winter Social, and other events that build a closer community
  • Making WFSC competitions (NYI, Pickens, Potomac Open) extra special through officials or competitors goodie bags


We are also grateful for value-in-kind gifts to be used at competitions or test sessions. Examples include lanyards, lip balms, granola bars, flowers, and others.
