Overview of Fundraising
BAC’s swim team operations are only partially covered through membership dues. Please help support our team by participating in our programs below. Required fundraising and volunteer hour commitment has been eliminated.
Show your BAC pride with team spiritwear. Sales will be open in fall and spring with new styles and designs to show your pride. A portion of the sales will benefit our team.
All BAC athletes are expected to participate and swim in USA Swimming’s Swim-A-Thon program. In addition to physically challenging our athletes, Swim-A-Thon is our team’s largest fundraiser to support our team and USA Swimming. Details to follow.
BAC Tile Program
All BAC families can leave their permanent mark on the BAC facility. Families may purchase a tile with their child’s original design that will be installed in the swim school/locker room hallway. Click here for photos of current tiles at BAC. Cost is $100 per tile and proceeds will support our team. Fall 2020.
Looking to leave your mark at 629 Central Avenue? Purchase a Brick to be installed on the front walk at the main entrance. Cost is $1000 per brick and proceeds will support our team. Fall 2020 and beyond.
Grocery Gift Cards
Families can pre-order and pay for grocery cards for Shop-Rite, Stop & Shop and Kings. 5% of each $100 gift card counts supports our team. If you are interested in participating in this program, please reach out to Jennifer Thomas at [email protected] with questions.
Shop with Scrip Program
The online ShopWithScrip program allows you to purchase gift cards from hundreds of different vendors. These are the same gift cards that you can purchase directly from retailers. For each card you purchase, a percentage of your order will be donated back to our team. If you are interested in participating in this program, please reach out to Jennifer Thomas at [email protected] with questions.
Double Good Popcorn Fundraiser
Double Good Popcorn pop-up fundraisers will be held in the winter of 2021. 50% of your order will benefit our team.
BSA is a member of United Way and you can contribute to BSA by donating to United Way through corporate sponsorship. The advantage of this donation is that some corporations will make matching gifts to BSA, doubling your contribution. However, it cannot count towards your Fundraising Commitment since it is tax deductible. To make a donation to BSA through United Way, simply give our United Way number (Blue Streak Aquatic, Inc. #017541) to your United Way coordinator and the money will be forwarded to us. You will receive a receipt from United Way and from us. Please let us know the amount and your employer if you decide to make a donation in this manner because the checks are often not well labeled and it's difficult to know who has donated the money.
Blue Streak Aquatic is a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for sites to earn advertising fees by advertising and linking to amazon.com.
