2021 – Donating made easier!
Thank you to the Club Members who, despite the toughness of 2020, continued to support the Club with donations. Donations, although down on 2019, were still a significant $3,300. Added to the difficulties of 2020, it took commitment to make a donation to the Club, because it is not technically possible in our online Booking and Membership system to make a donation in the same transaction as Subscription renewal.
However, in addition to the direct deposit method mentioned last year, there is a new method to make it easier to donate. Of course, if you prefer to deal with the Office, please contact Liz, as in the past.
New Option – Direct from PayPal without an invoice – quick and easy
Click on this link Donate to our Rebuilding Fund
It will take you to PayPal where you can donate whatever amount you wish.
Alternative Option 1 – Direct Deposit – better for larger donations
Deposit your donation direct to the account which is dedicated to the Thredbo Lodge Rebuild, where funds are quarantined prior to establishing a term deposit. Account details are: The R.A.N. Ski Club, BSB 032 729, Account 33 3148. Please don’t forget your name in the description field. This method avoids paying the PayPal fee which is a sliding scale averaging some 2.86 per cent (or $28.63 on $1000).
Alternative Option 2 – deal directly with the Office
Ring Liz, who will be only too happy to take your money!
