Oregon Swimming - Travel Fund

In the mid-1990s, the OSI leadership embarked on a bold initiative creating a Travel Endowment to assist with the LSC's financial operation into the future.  To fund the Travel Endowment, there is a $3/athlete surcharge at every sanctioned competition in the Oregon Swimming LSC.  In addition, a portion of the splash and relay fees is levied.

These revenues are used to cover the cost of various travel expenses of OSI athletes:  All-Star competition, Western Age Group Zone competition, National events, Senior Training Trip, Convention, and Olympic Trials.  In addition, a variety of Officials events are partially covered.

Any left over funds are deposited into the Travel Endowment which are invested in a conservative manner according to an Investment Policy and overseen by an Investment Committee.

After 20 years, the Travel Endowment has reached a level that no longer requires annual contributions.  Instead, the annual interest is returned to OSI to fund various athlete and official expenses.
