our philosophy

  • A Local Endeavor

    The money you raise for heating fuel assistance stays within your community or your county. You are helping your neighbors.

  • Everyone Can Help

    One of the founding tenets of Ski for Heat was that it should be fun and easy for everyone to participate in, whether you are five years old or eight-five, first-time skier or former pro. There is no registration fee to take part in an event, nor is there a minimum amount that has to be raised.

  • All Donations go to the Cause

    When you make a contribution to Ski for Heat, all of the proceeds go to the heating fuel assistance fund at the local community action agency. Ski for Heat is funded by generous donors and is run solely by volunteers.

Ski for Heat is for the community and made strong by the community. Participants often ask how they can volunteer or assist me with Ski for Heat, a question for which I am extremely grateful. The most effective answer is simply to help spread the word about Ski for Heat at Wild Wings and Bromley and about the concert & dance party! (Your friends and family will be so thankful that you did!) If you know someone at a business who would like to be a sponsor, please put them in touch with me.

Also, those who know me are fully aware that I am a “social dinosaur” and that I would much prefer to be on the trails than on social media! Any posts or pictures you can add to any of the social media pages would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks so much for your help and support!
