SWIM-A-THON AND FUNDRAISING BACKGROUND

What is a Swim-A-Thon?

A Swim-A-Thon is a USA Swimming Foundation approved fundraiser used by swim teams all over the United States to raise money for their respective club.

To raise money through a Swim-A-Thon, swimmers traditionally receive pledges from family, friends, neighbors, and local businesses for the number of laps they swim. This year, our MAC event is structured for donations only, and all donations are made in name of your swimmer (‘PARTICIPANT’). Our aim is to ensure this event is safe, fun and yet a challenging one for our athletes on Saturday, October 2.

How Your Donation Helps Us

We are proud of our history. See the About MAC file to learn who we are and how fundraising has helped us in our nearly 20 years as part of the Magnolia community.

Your donation helps us offset expenses for our membership, purchase equipment, and make capital improvements beyond what the MAC operating budget can provide. One of our goals this year is to purchase a state-of-the art scoreboard that will not only enhance the spectator experience but also be a valuable training aid for athletes and coaches.

All money raised goes to the Magnolia Aquatic Club (MAC) Booster Club Inc., a 501(c)(3) nonprofit corporation, meaning you will receive a receipt for tax purposes. The Booster Club oversees all funds raised to ensure it is used to benefit the club as a whole and supports MAC's mission: Building Champions For Life Through Swimming.

Your Donation Also Helps USA Swimming

Five percent of the proceeds raised from our Swim-a-Thon goes back to the USA Swimming Foundation to support learn-to-swim programs and to provide financial support to our U.S. National Team athletes and coaches. By donating to our Swim-A-Thon fundraiser, you are not only providing funds to build a stronger team for MAC, but you are helping to give kids across the country the same great experience in the pool.

Thank you!
