WHAT IS CLEVELAND CHAMPIONSHIPS 2000?
HISTORY & MISSION
Cleveland Championships 2000 (CC2000) was established as a 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation in 1996 to foster, support, develop and promote local, national, and international figure skating and, specifically, to sponsor and manage the 2000 US Figure Skating Championships.
In subsequent years CC2000 bid to host the 2003 World Figure Skating Championships and several other US Figure Skating Championship years, ultimately securing 2009 US Figure Skating Championships for the City of Cleveland.
The monies raised in 2000 and 2009 were invested conservatively and payouts, in the form of merit awards and grants, have been limited to an average of 4% a year to preserve the fund for generations of figure skaters.
Today CC2000 continues to bid on national skating events, actively supports programs and initiatives to grow membership in local skating clubs and provides funding for annual merit awards and grants.
