HOW TO DONATE 
 
We encourage all our swimmers to raise a minimum of $100 in support of our fundraising goal. We recommend reaching out to neighbours, family friends and family members to chip in any amount towards your goal or prize amount. Personal asks in person or by phone that connect with the reason behind the fundraising go a long way!
 
Answering why VPSC is important to you can help you enroll the support of as many people as possible. Swimmers will set up their own personal donation page through the Raise-A-Thon website, as well as will be given tools and information on how to help their fundraising efforts.
 
Please note that CRA will not allow Swim Canada to issue charitable tax receipts for swim-a-thon donations this year which is a change from previous years – more info here: https://www.swimming.ca/content/uploads/2018/11/Swim-a-thon-2019-PS-Club-Memo-Nov.-29-2018- Final.pdf
