End of Year Donations
  As we come to the end of the year, we are asking you to join with us in supporting our program.  The Santa Clarita Track Club,  Inc. is starting our annual fundraising drive. Contributions provide recreation scholarships for youth in the Santa Clarita Valley, purchase needed equipment,  help local youth athletes compete at the National Junior Olympics  and provide a quality Track and Field and Cross Country sport program.
 
  Like all businesses, we do have overhead costs, and with your help we can ensure that these costs do not compromise the quality of our youth program.  Our club consists solely of volunteer coaches and staff; therefore, all of your donations will go towards operating and improving our program.
  We are asking you to partner with us in achieving our goal. We are a non-profit charitable 501(c)3 organization and donations to us are tax deductible our tax id number is:  77-0615715.
  We also help some of our top youth athletes compete at the National Junior Olympics, With this we need funds to help pay expenses for travel, food and lodging and car rentals. We are requesting your support to help these athletes realize their dreams of competing at a national event.
Thank you for your support.
