Joy. It’s a term we don’t use very much in our daily lives. But it is a vital part of Club Northwest. Whether at the All-Comer’s meets, the Winter Grand Prix, setting a personal record, or knowing that one of our teammates is toeing the line at the Olympic Trials, the Club creates opportunities for athletes across all levels to achieve their dreams. To feel joy.
Since the founding of our Club, we have prioritized keeping our events affordable and accessible for the members of the community. Many successful years of the All-Comers series and the Winter Grand Prix have only been possible through generous member donations and thousands of volunteer hours. We hope to continue this model for the years to come, but we continually face new challenges as our expenses change and our volunteer base varies. Through your donation you will contribute to the future of these events and their impact on the Pacific Northwest athletics community.
Additionally, your donation allows us to support athletes like Claire DeVoe who ran Eugene this spring and qualified for the 2020 Women’s Olympic Marathon Trials. And our cross-country teams who reach the podium at Club Nationals year after year.
Our goal is to raise $10,000 – less than $25 a member. One of our members has generously offered to match the first $2000 donated. Donate right away and your money will be doubled.
You can donate by:
● Going to the Club Northwest website: www.clubnorthwest.org
● Sending your personal check to: Club Northwest P.O. Box 31958 Seattle, WA, 98103
Club Northwest is a 501c-3 organization and all donations are tax deductible. Many employers match charitable donations, please check if your employer will. We will recognize all donors that give over $200 in our Fall E-News.
The campaign starts today and will continue through August 9th.
Your donation plays a crucial part in helping continue our mission of supporting the local running and athletics community. If you would like to know more about Club Northwest’s efforts please visit www.clubnorthwest.org or contact our Club President Tyler VanDooren at firstname.lastname@example.org.

At Club Northwest, we want to be transparent to our members and community about our Club resources, and let you know where and how our resources are being directed. Below, we break down the sources of revenue and expenses to the Club. (Note: This breakdown excludes in-kind support, such as the gear packages offered to our sponsored athletes by Brooks, and over 250 free race entries to XC meets). This past year saw the Club in better financial circumstances than previous years, thanks in part to higher than expected participation in Club-sponsored events, which has allowed us to slowly start rebuilding our emergency fund. In previous years, growing event expenses have threatened to exceed our revenues, and negatively impact the quality and quantity of support we can offer to our athletes, members, and the community.
