HOW TO SET UP YOUR PLEDGE PAGE
The easiest way to fundaise for our team is to use our online pledge page tools. Athletes can set-up individual page with photos and a personal note to potential donors. We encourage swimmers to have fun sharing photos of them in the water and with teammates, plus why they love swimming with WAVE and what our team means to them.
Family, friends and co-workers will appreciate "seeing them in action" and hearing about their awesome experiences. Plus it is the ideal place to share why this year's effort is essential to our club.
From there, athletes can enter information to create personal email blasts, follow-ups and thank yous.
Tips to Remember:
ALL donations are tax-deductible; both online and offline donations (checks) are accepted; corporate giving above the $500 level can earn marketing perks if that is of interest to a business/organization.
