The WHEATON SWIM CLUB fundraising program is designed to benefit both the team and its members. The fundraising monies will go directly to paying the operating costs of the team, thereby helping to keep your team fees down.

ADDITIONAL (OPTIONAL) FUNDRAISING OPPORTUNITIES
Wheaton Swim Club also provides different opportunities from outside sources for families to earn additional monies to apply to their account.
The team will participate in the USA Swimming’s official Swim-a-thon. Swimmers can solicit donations (per lap or an overall donation) from friends, family, neighbors, etc. Any money raised would go towards family’s fees. Additionally, the team will make a donation to USA Swimming on behalf of each participating swimmer. Any questions please email Coach Bob.
“Scrip” is simply another name for “Gift Certificates.” If you have ever used a gift certificate, then you’ve used Scrip. The program works by parents, friends, relatives, and others purchasing Scrip through Wheaton organization from the selected merchants provided by Scrip. These gift certificates are available from many local and national merchants, which you frequent during many of your weekly activities. There are different percentages you can earn depending on the merchant.
100% of what you make goes to the swimmers account until you reach the group fundraising commitment amount. After that amount reached, all monies earned is split with the team.
