Donations

The COSA Swimming Foundation (aka Booster Club) exists to promote the health, education, and welfare of the members of COSA Swimming teams and programs. The Foundation was organized and operates exclusively for charitable and educational purposes and to foster national and international amateur sports competition within the meaning of Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code.

The Foundation is run by a Board of Trustees who meet regularly. Donations of time, goods, services, and money are needed to support the Foundation's initiatives, which include hosting competitive, social, and educational events, providing scholarships to help cover dues and fees for those in need, and so on. Contact the Board today to donate your time, goods, and services, and/or make a monetary donation now!

Did You Know
You may earmark up to 80% of your monetary donation to pay for future COSA fees and dues for a specfic athlete. To do this:
-> Enter the athlete's first and last name and the percentage of your donation (up to 80%) that you would like to go to that athlete in the field near the top of the payment page that says, "add a note for the seller."
-> The indicated percentage of your monetary donation will then be credited to the specified athlete's COSA account.
Note that donations to the non-profit COSA Foundation are typically tax-deductible, except for portions earmarked for specific athletes, which may be considered by taxing authorities to be gifts rather than donations. The prior statement should not be taken as tax advice; consult with a tax advisor regarding your specific situation.
