As a non – profit organization, financial assistance to operate the Games is derived from various sources. Corporate and personal donations, funds raised through Bingo and lottery operations (activities/efforts), and grants obtained from the City of Hamilton and various foundations comprise our financial set-up.
The budget differs somewhat year to year as an away year (Games in Flint) requires a substantial cost for bus transportation. A current and complete budget is provided with the Treasurer’s report at the start of our fiscal year.
A registration fee is requested from each competitor (approx. 1,000). Additional funding is procured through the sale of promotional shirts/items, donations, and fundraising activities conducted throughout the year.
