Fundraising for a Cause

Dakota Star Gymnastics is a 501(C)3 charitable orgainzation. We fundraise* in an effort to keep tuition affordable for our members and event guests. Our goal is to provide a fun, safe, and quality experience for all members of our community without putting undue burden on families' budgets.

Studies show that youth athletes are better students, have stronger social skills, and are more motivated and successful employees when they enter the workforce. Please help us build our community's future through today's children!

*Please note that all fundraisers through DSG must be pre-paid and money received in the office by the fundraising deadline for your items to be ordered. Thank you for your understanding.

Giving Tree

How it works:

In December, take an item star from the Giving Tree in our lobby and donate to DSG; these are generally items like cleaning supplies and tissues. Grab a few extra items while you are at the store instead trying to sell during the holidays; a little goes a long way to help us keep the gym a clean and healthy place!
