Swim team fundraising ideas
Easy Swim Team Fundraising Ideas
Fundraisers are a great way for any team to raise money. Swim teams can hold fundraising events to help keep the pool in shape, for swimming equipment such as flippers, and to raise money and awareness about a certain cause. These events include swim-a-thons, swim lessons, penny drives, dinners, swim team fundraising give-a-ways, raffles and catalog fundraising sales.
To raise money for swim meets / swim-a-thons you can sell our Smart Snacks. These smart snacks are a great way to earn money because it meets state guidelines for healthy fundraising and is warm weather friendly. They also retail for $7.00 each and makes 50% profit. Smart snacks are also a healthy alternative to snacking. Instead of a bag of chips try our healthy trail mix and nut options.
A swim -a- thon is a fundraiser in which swim team members ask businesses, family, neighbors and others (prior to swimming). The people that you ask pledge you a certain amount of money for a certain number of laps you swim. For example if someone pledged you $1 per lap and you swam 100 laps they would give you $100.
