What is a recommended donation?

A recommended donation is the fair market value for the services rendered. The recommended donation amount is a suggested amount that you would expect to pay if you were going to pay for this service in the secular market by using a company outside of FCA Hockey Advisory Family Services.  We are constantly researching the cost and budgets of families paying and company advertising for similar services. YourIf you are unable to pay these amounts we will still work with you and your player and provide you our best level of support.  FCA Hockey Advisory Services has been formalized because parents have asked how they can support the ministry moving forward as many families have already used these services over the past 5 years.  If you feel led to pay above and beyond the suggested recommended donation amount then every dollar above the FMV amount is tax deductible. Please consult us or  your  accountant for further detail.

What happens if nothing happens

We are going to do our best to put your kid in the right place and right environment. At the end of the day there are no guarantees.

Do I get a refund if my player doesn't get on a team?

No. There are no refunds. Your fee is a donation to FCA. You are not paying to get your son on a team you are making a donation to the Vision of FCA. Your son will grow spiritually, but your fee is not a fee its a donation. This is not a conditional contract like other organizations and family services.

Why should I donate?

We at FCA are responsible for our own budget. We rely on parents and player donations to keep the ministry healthy and thriving. We need your help as missionaries to continue the vision of FCA Hockey.
