Annual Fundraising Requirement - Youth
To meet O2 Performance Aquatics financial obligations as a team, fundraising is a vital component of our income. Each year in the spring, O2 hosts a Swim-a-Thon where swimmers of every age-group level participate. Each swimmer is required to raise a minimum of $225 for this event whether they actually participate or not. Receiving pledges from family, friends, neighbors and co-workers is generally the way to accomplish this goal. If this goal is not met by each swimmer, the $225 (or difference between $225 and what is raised by each swimmer) will be assessed on the next invoice. (Family max is $300)
(note O2 is a 501(c)(3) organization alldonations are tax deductible)
Invoiced in month following the actual event or raised through Swim-a-thon donations
