Seasonal fundraising by each family is necessary, as Palatine Swim team is 100% funded by the fees collected at the beginning of each season, at registration.  The money each swimmer raises helps meet budgetary expenses, such as coaches’ salaries and professional development, pool and facility rental, local, regional and national meet expenses for the coaching staff, awards, equipment, team builders for the swimmers, and other expenses. There will be at least one mandatory fundraiser each season. An annual swim-a-thon is an example of a mandatory fundraiser. Families will be required to raise at least $50 to $100 a season to sustain the needs of the team. Other optional fundraising activities held include car washes, selling candy, scrip gift cards, bake sales etc. In addition, the Palatine Swim Team hosts two to four swim meets yearly (including the Summer & Winter Splash meets) in which a swimmer or family may procure ads posted in the heat sheets sold to attending families. 




What is ShopWithScrip?


The basic concept behind scrip:


·         Retailers sell gift cards/gift certificates at a discount

·         Families buy the certificates at full face value and redeem them for full face value

·         The difference is applied to your team fees the next season


When you use scrip gift cards at your favorite retailers, you’re fundraising while you shop! There

are over 300 of the country’s biggest brands, including grocery, department stores, gas stations,

restaurants, hotels, home improvement, and more. Just by using scrip to pay for your normal

weekly purchase, you can easily raise $500 or more a year! It’s time to put your shopping dollars to work!


It’s common for people to wonder “what’s the catch?”  The catch - if there is one - is that you have to plan your purchases a little bit. That’s it!
