Contributions by the FSC exceeds $149,400 for on-mountain charities since 1984.
Since 1984, The Florida Ski Council has supported charities at the resorts we visit as well as here at home in Florida. While our main purpose is to assure that our members enjoy themselves on their ski trip, we also want to leave behind a positive reminder of our group in the communities we visit.
Each year, the Florida Ski Council supports the Ski & Winter Sports Athletic Club at the Florida School for the Deaf and Blind (FSDB), and the Veterans Adaptive Sports (FAS) Winter sports program. To date, we have supported various programs for blind skiers, physically challenged skiers, youth ski programs, charitable groups, and hospitals in the resorts we have visited. The Florida Ski Council was the first council in the country to adopt a charitable program such as this.
For the 2022 season, a special request from the FSDB ski club sponsor, Jennifer Enache:
"The FSDB Ski & Winter Sports Athletic Club is planning on taking our students who are blind/visually impaired skiing at Whitefish Resort in Whitefish, Montana. We are hoping to travel there in January, 2022, as long as the school allows us to travel. Our group is totally financed through the Florida Ski Council and ski clubs throughout the state of Florida. We have created a wish list of items we would love to have for our students for this trip. If your group has a newsletter, could you please include the letter with the information about our wish list in your newsletter. Here is the link to our Wish List through the Amazon Smile program: CLICK HERE
