Each swimmer please try to get $200 in donations!!! YOU CAN DO THIS!!!
Why: Willamette Valley Aquatics (Albany Swim Team and Willamette Valley Waterpolo) only hold one fundraiser per year.  We use the funds to help those who need financial assistance, buy new equipment, and KEEP YOUR MONTHLY DUES LOW! Without being able to host swim meets or polo tournaments, this fundraiser is going to be one of our only sources of income for the year.

Goal: To SWIM AS MANY LENGTHS AS YOU CAN and receive pledges for swimming.  All swimmers will try to get pledges from family, friends, neighbors, and family business connections. Some people will pledge by the length (let them know about how many you are likely to swim) and most will give a flat donation.  Some people will just give you money or a check right on the spot.  If they give you a check, please have them make it out to WVA and give them a tax receipt.  Please take an adult with you or go in pairs for older swimmers.

Types of pledges:
“Door to door” – Go to family and friends, record it on your pledge sheet and give tax receipts when someone gives you money.  Checks should be made out to WVA. Collect by November 15th.

Business connection donations– We can help promote businesses that donate $300 by putting them in our heat sheets and on our website.  Donations over $600 can get a banner posted on our wall during swim meets and polo tournaments as well.  Logo of business will also be placed on one of our club cargo trailers.  If you have someone interested, talk to Coach Kenzie and she can help.

ALL DONATIONS ARE TAX DEDUCTIBLE! Our non-profit tax ID# is 46-0487792, so use that information to encourage donations. You will hand your donor a receipt, when you receive payment in the form of a check to WVA or cash. Bring them with you when you get pledges, because some people will donate on the spot.

PRIZES!
Any participant: Halloween candy bag
2nd place: Trailblazers silicone swim cap and “get out of set free” card.
1st place: One night FREE at ANY Marriott, expires 3/21.  Some exclusions apply.
ANYONE WHO RECEIVES OVER $200 in pledges: Collaborate and write a set that Coach Kenzie and Coach Steve will swim. You guys will be the coaches.
