FUNDRAISING AT AQUAKIDS
As a non-profit organization, Aquakids relies on not only dues and fees, but also fundraising done by our sponsors and families.
Kroger Community Rewards Program (NPO- HQ313)
We are excited to announce that you can now help the team by shopping at Kroger!
Aquakids is registered as a Community Rewards organization with Kroger, and there are two ways that Aquakids families can link their Kroger reward cards to Aquakids:
Log onto krogercommunityrewards.com register your Kroger Plus card online, and click the Community Rewards tab on top of the page to link your Kroger Plus card to Aquakids and add NPO number: HQ313 or name: The Aquakids INC
- Do you use your phone number at the register? Call 800-576-4377, select option 4 to get your Kroger Plus card number. (NPO number HQ313 or name The Aquakids INC)
You must swipe your registered Kroger Plus card or use the phone number that is related to their registered Kroger Plus card when shopping for each purchase to count.
You don’t have a Kroger Plus card? Follow the easy steps below to register:
Family Sponsorship options:
We are continuing the practice of asking our Aquakids families to consider sponsoring or seeking
business partner sponsors. These sponsorships help our team offset the costs for hosting home
meets, buying team equipment, and other operating expenses that occur throughout the year.
Past family and business sponsorships have helped our team in so many ways. Our goal is to
provide the best experience possible for our swimmers and families. We are very appreciative for all
past sponsorships and hope that you will consider sponsoring our team this year. Below are the
different sponsorship levels and benefits.
Family Sponsorship options: (good for one year from time of purchase):
Gold Level ($250) Includes: A half page ad space in the heat sheet to cheer on your child(ren) for
each home meet (3 meets total – including the January 25th-27th State meet). Parent name(s) listed
as Gold Level sponsor on Aquakids banner, on the website, and listed on the home meet tshirts/
heat sheets. Families of gold sponsorship receive two Aquakids team t-shirts.
Silver Level ($150) Includes: A quarter page ad space in the heat sheet to cheer on your child(ren)
at one home meet (including the January State meet, if you prefer). Parent name(s) listed as Silver
Level sponsor on website/heat sheets. Families of silver sponsorship receive one Aquakids team tshirt.
Bronze Level ($50) Includes: Parent name(s) listed as Bronze Level sponsor on website/heat
If you would like to become an Aquakids sponsor or know of a business that would like to do so, we
ask that you let one of our board members know by December 31, 2018. This will give us
enough opportunity to place names or businesses in the areas listed above. We will have an easy to
understand business sponsor information sheet for you to share or give to anyone interested in
sponsoring our program. We are willing to work with and accommodate businesses in their offers to
assist Aquakids in any way.
Business Sponsorship options:
Business Sponsorship options (good for one year from time of purchase):
Gold Level ($500): Half page business ad for each home meet (3 meets total). Business name listed
on Aquakids banner, on our website, and on home meet t-shirts. Business logo on the Aquakids
website that links to business.
Silver Level ($250): Quarter page business ad for each home meet. Business logo on sponsorship
page and name listed on website/heat sheets
Bronze Level ($100): Business card size ad for the business each home meet. Business name listed
on website/heat sheets
If you would like to merely purchase an ad for the heat sheet for our State meet in January and NOT
sponsor the team, that’s possible, too! In fact, you could get a group of swimmers together and each
spend very little, take a group picture and divide the cost of an ad! Not only would you be supporting
your swimmer(s); you would also be supporting our team financially!
Pricing is as follows:
Full page ad $100
Half page ad $50
Quarter page ad $25
Again, please have the ad’s picture and caption to one of our board members by January 15th
so that we can print the heat sheets.
