Team Fundraising

MACS families will be billed monthly for their fundraising requirement.  Billing will begin with the October monthly billing period and end with the July monthly billing period (10 total billings).

The family monthly fundraising requirement is calculated by using the highest group level swimmer in that family.  MACS will track all fundraising dollars. The fundraising requirement for each group will be evaluated every quarter to allow for changes due to the team’s financial needs
.

 



The MACS practice groups have the following monthly fundraising commitments:
 

Group Monthly Fundraising
Mini Macs $25/month
Group 1 $25/month
Group 2 $25/month
Groups 3 &4

$80/month

Senior 3 $25/month
Senior 5 $80/month
Sectional $80/month


The following are the main fundraisers that MACS has in place.  You may pick and choose which ones are right for you.

SCRIP

You buy gift cards to any of your favorite restaurants or retailers and a percentage is sent to MACS.  There is no additional expense over the gift card face value.  If you are going to spend the money anyway, why not have a percentage go to the team and toward your commitment?  Check out the Great Lakes Scrip website for a list of the participating retailers:  www.glscrip.com.  Please contact Margaret Baker for more information. Watch for emails reminding the team when the orders will be placed.  Remember this is a great way to take care of teachers, friend, and colleagues around the holidays.

King Soopers Cards

You buy your original King Soopers card from MACS. Then you reload it at King Soopers. You get 5% fundraising credit on all your reloads. That's $5 credit for every $100 you reload on the card. For more information about fundraising with King Sooper Cards click here.


Butter Braids

Sold around Thanksgiving, each Butter Braid sold makes $5 for the team.  If you are able to sell 20 butter braids you will make $100 towards your commitment.  Swimmers will have 2-3 weeks to sell Butter Braids and then turn in their order forms along with payment. A pickup date will be scheduled for swimmers to pick up the Butter Braids.




SWIM-A-THON (annually in May)

Click here for more information. Each family solicits donations through this program set up by USA Swimming.  The donations may or may not be based on the number of laps swum. Please contact Mitzie Gibbs for more information.


Corporate Matching

Make a donation to MACS and have your corporation match the funds if you work for a company that matches. Your donation goes to your child's fundraising at 100% and the corporate match from the company will be credited at 50% to your child's fundraising account.  MACS will provide the paperwork verifying that MACS is a 501(c)(3) organization.

 

Example: You donate $100 to MACs ( $100 goes to your child's fundraising account). Company A who you work for, matches your $100 donation ( you get $50 in your child's fundraising account and MACs gets $50 in MACs emergency fund account for maintence/upkeep on the pool MACs owns).
