Making the Most of Corporate Matching for Swim-A-Thon!



KATY Aquatics has already raised over $7,500 with online donations for Swim-A-Thon! 

Team Paulie & Bill are currently holding the lead with $2,410 and Team Jocelin & Erin are still in second place with $1,440!
What a way to start week 3 of Fundraising!

Don't forget about Corporate Matching! 
Matching Gift Programs are charitable giving programs set up by corporations in which the company matches donations made by employees to eligible nonprofit organizations. For example, if a donor works for Bank of America and donates $250 to a nonprofit organization, Bank of America will then match the donation and write a check for $250 to the same organization.
Note: This process can take several weeks depending upon the corporation. Any checks received after March 24th will not be calculated into the Swim-A-Thon Prize Packages. However, the amount will go towards your family fundraising requirement.    

The team is also utilizing “TU Money” through Team Unify as our online donation website where friends and family members have the option to post their donations using a credit card. 

All you need to do is log into your family account at www.katyaquatics.org and click on the Fundraiser Banner on our homepage. From here, type your swimmer's name in the ‘Participant’ box to begin the set-up of your swimmer’s profile.

Next, you will click on the ‘Set-Up’ tab to personalize/update your swimmer’s profile page by filling in their fundraising goal, lap goal, and message template. You can even choose to upload a personal photo! Swimmers also have the option to place additional flare to their page from the Stock Photo Library provided by Team Unify. If you would like to edit your swimmer’s message template, simply click inside the text box to personalize your thoughts about swimming with Katy Aquatics.

TU Money allows your swimmer to maximize donations and increase awareness of our fundraising activity through Facebook, Twitter, and email blasts utilizing your current address book!  So be sure to click on your PROMOTE tab under your profile page and send out those emails - It's that simple!  

Please encourage your child to help raise funds for the team throughout the Swim-A-Thon Campaign. Individual prizes will be awarded to the swimmers who raise $226 or more. Please refer to page 4 in the  Swim-A-Thon Packet to view the different prizes listed for 2018.

All 2018 Swim-A-Thon Fundraising information is located under the "Fundraising" tab on our homepage should you need to reference any material and feel free to email all questions regarding Swim-A-Thon or our fundraising efforts to swimathon@katyaquatics.net.  

Let’s make the most of every moment and reach our TOP GOAL of $200,000!!
