FAMILY AFFIDAVIT
GUIDELINES PROVIDED BY SWIMMING CANADA
General Rule
In order to qualify as a tax deductible donation a transfer of property (including
payment of money by cash or cheque), must meet the following conditions:
1. Some property – usually cash – is transferred to the Registered Charity.
Contributions of service such as volunteers’ time, legal work, etc., DO NOT
QUALIFY.
2. The gift must be made without expectation of return. No valuable
consideration or benefit of any kind to the donor or to anyone designated by
the donor may result from the payment.
Swim Ontario IS NOT LEGALLY PERMITTED to issue Tax Receipts:
• for registration or assessment fees paid to join a swim club;
• to parents paying a swimmer's Swim-A-Thon fee set by a swim club;
• to clubs that "trade" or "switch" donations;
• for contributions to “members’ trust accounts” or “family accounts”.
C.C.R.A. Fundraising Audit Procedures
1. Provincial Affiliates must follow up on Same Name donors by contacting
club fundraising co-ordinators to ensure that the donation was not directed to
a specific individual and that the donation amount is above any pre-set
fundraising limit included in the Club Policy.
2. For fundraising projects where funds are contributed to members’ “Trust
Accounts” or “Family Accounts”, tax receipts MUST NOT be issued.
3. Provincial Affiliates may contact members directly to inquire about club
policies and pre-set fundraising limits.
4. Members’ families are required to electronically fill in the parent/guardian’s
name if the swimmer is under 18 years of age. 


In 2017 we have our sights set on a Swim-A-Thon goal of $15,000.00. In order to reach this goal we need the help of family, friends and members of the community. Your donations assist every Trojan swimmer to be a strong contender in the sport of swimming. By supporting the Trojans you are helping the club cover expenses such as pool time, coaching, equipment & travel. Become a proud sponsor of the Barrie Trojan Swim Club by donating today!


​Swim-A-Thon will involve all swimmers and it will be held on March 24-25, 2018 at the East Bayfield pool (Group schedules TBA). Remember that 90% of all online donations will be credited toward your fundraising commitment!

We encourage parents to go online and assist your swimmer with the registration. Please note: the family affidavit is part of the online swimmer registration.

It is important to note that due to changes made by Swim Canada, donations to the  BTSC Swim-a-thon are  not eligible for a charitable tax receipt.

Please go to our club link at www.ontarioswimathon.ca/btsc and register your swimmer and start spreading the word to family, friends, business colleagues, social contacts and those that support the sport of swimming. 

Please show your support, help us provide the best resources, coaching and programs that we can by helping to raise these valuable dollars that will support our swimming program.

Any trouble shooting please refer to the FAQ on your handout.

If you have any questions please contact your Swim-A-Thon coordinator at fundraising@barrieswimming.ca.
