Snow Alert -
PARK CITY, Utah (April 26) – Janine Alfano has been named as vice president of fundraising for the U.S. Ski and Snowboard Team Foundation, the fundraising arm of the U.S. Ski Team and U.S. Snowboarding. President and CEO Bill Marolt cited Alfano’s 11 years of experience with the Foundation in making the announcement.
“Janine has played a key role with the Foundation since coming to our Team in 1996,” said Marolt. “Her experience will provide us with an opportunity to maintain continuity and consistency in the department, and to build from her strengths immediately.”
Alfano has managed every area of Foundation. She began her USSA career managing fundraising events and is responsible for developing the very successful model used by the Foundation today. She also is responsible for creating the “Champions Club” program, which provides opportunities for supporters to attend the Olympics as VIP guests of the Team, while creating a significant revenue stream to fund athletic programming.
“We’ve been successful in the Foundation because we have a very talented staff working with an extremely dedicated and generous board of trustees,” said Alfano. “One of the things I’m most looking forward to is working more closely with our Board.”
“Among my immediate goals is to reach our Legacy Campaign endowment goal of $60 million so that we can begin construction on our Center of Excellence. This world class training facility is critical to our future – not only for athletics but for all of USSA”
Alfano will oversee a staff of 12. The Foundation’s activities are diverse including the Legacy Campaign endowment, major giving, special events, direct marketing and the U.S. Ski Team Gold Pass. The Foundation raises nearly $7 million a year in its annual fund with a goal of reaching $10 million in annual revenue by 2010.
A New Jersey native, Alfano is a 1988 graduate of Dickinson College in Pennsylvania. She came to the Foundation in 1996 after working in sales for The Denver Post. She lives in Park City.
Alfano replaces Trisha Worthington. Worthington has left USSA to spend more time with her family and to direct a new Park City-based community foundation.
The U.S. Ski and Snowboard Team Foundation is a 501(c)3 charitable organization. It is managed integrally within the U.S. Ski and Snowboard Association, the national governing body for Olympic skiing and snowboarding, which funds, develops and trains the U.S. Ski Team and U.S. Snowboarding. The Team receives no federal funding or subsidies and operates solely through private donations from individuals, corporations and foundations. To learn more about supporting the Team, contact Janine Alfano at 435.647.2071 or donations can be sent to her attention at Box 100/1500 Kearns Boulevard, Park City, UT 84060
