It's time to get serious about fund raising

Nickel City Aquatics Fund Raising 2019-2020

The season is well underway and as always, we have to find ways to put some FUN into fundraising.

Unlike many sport clubs, NCA does not make fund raising mandatory.  In spite of this, our members have in past been very supportive of our efforts. Last season, we had 85% of members contributing to fund raising.   We try to make fund raising enjoyable or if not enjoyable then very little work on the part of our members.  Most of the funds raised  go  toward our general operating costs, which increase yearly however,  specific items such as team spirit wear for some of our meets and equipment such as our digital pace clock are funded by our efforts.

We offer a number of ways to fund raise and it is not necessary to participate in all events.  Hopefully, with the variety offered, each member can find a way to participate.  

Below you will find an outline of the events for the season.  More information will be provided about each event as we go forward.

Thank you in advance for your generous participation in our efforts.
