NLAC FUNDRAISING ACTIVITIES
1.) NLAC Swim-a-thon
This has evolved over the past few years into a significant fundraiser for the year. We have raised approximately $40,000 since our first Swim-a-thon was conducted in May of 2011!
Our Swim-a-thon for the 2017-2018 swim year will be conducted in the spring and we hope to make it our most successful Swim-a-thon fundraiser to date. In order to do so, we need the participation of ALL NLAC families. As a result, all families will be once again required to raise a minimum of $100 toward this cause if they have a single swimmer, and $125 if they have two or more swimmers. However, this is just a minimum commitment. In order for us to be truly successful with this endeavor, we need families to go above and beyond the minimum requirement. Stay tuned for more information!

4.) Corporate Sponsorships
This past long course season, NLAC started offering corporate sponsorship opportunities for businesses to take advantage of the outstanding exposure that an affiliation with our club can provide. This will be an area of our club that we will be expanding over the coming years. Currently, we have a very unique opportunity to offer a potential Team Season Sponsor.
