Family Fund Raiser
Training fees alone do not cover all of the necessary costs (pool rental, coaching salaries, etc) associated with the operation of GPAC. Fund raising helps GPAC to minimize increases to monthly training fees. This year the Board of Directors has determined that each family is required to raise or be assessed the following amounts.
$120.00 ~ New families (1st enrollment with GPAC) to the White, Blue & Senior Blue Training Groups
$165.00 ~ Returning families in the White, Blue & Senior Blue Training Groups
$225.00 ~ All families in the Green & Junior Training Groups
$240.00 ~ All families in the Senior Green Training Groups
$285.00 ~ All families in the Senior Training Group
~Your family's requirement is based on your highest-level swimmer. The amount is required regardless of the number of months in the year the swimmer participates in training.
~This amount is split into three time frames with one third of the obligation due on each of the following dates December 1st, February 1st and May 1st.
~If a family does not meet the minimum required of their training group through fund raising, they will be charged the remainder of the obligation on their monthly statement.
Families are encouraged to raise more than the minimum while fundraising as additional funds help GPAC to provide swimmers with a better experience. To meet this obligation GPAC families have several options as listed below:
Heat Sheet Advertising: A heat sheet is a packet at meets that is used to show the events, swimmers and lanes for the competition. Most parents use heat sheets and it is therefore a very visible form of advertising. Ads can be full page, half page or quarter page in length. Selling or buying ads that are placed in our home heat sheets are a good way to meet your fund raising obligation. Please click this link regarding information for selling heat sheet ads.

Matching Donations: Some companies offer matching donations to nonprofit organizations like GPAC, please check with your employer.
Volunteer Hour Donations: Some companies offer donations to nonprofit organizations like GPAC to employees who volunteer time with those organizations, please check with your employer.
Team Sponsorships: Sponsors are also very important to the success of our meets as well as our team. Sponsoring the team is also a great way to meet your fundraising obligation. Please click this link regarding GPAC's sponsorship package. Sponsorship Package Also please contact Coach Phil Kraus with questions or to learn more about Sponsorships!
Scrip: This is a gift card purchasing system that provides GPAC a percentage of the cost of the card. That percentage amount gets credited to your requirement. Use it to purchase gifts or for everyday shopping. It is really that easy!
Here are a few fliers that explain the scrip program in detail. Please read them all to understand how it works. All Families must use Presto Pay. Presto Pay does require some lead time to make your account active so if you are new to the Scrip program please plan accordingly. There is $0.15 convience fee per transaction on Presto pay and a $30 insufficiant funds charge. GPAC places orders on the 9th of each month!
