Hillsboro Swim Team:
Non-profit EIN # 93-0936464

arena:  Hillsboro Swim Team has a contract with arena. Members are required to purchase arena team apparel and equipment, as detailed on the Apparel & Equipment page, linked on the homepage. In return, arena supports many aspects of our team, through discounts and awarded gear and apparel. The amount of annual support is based on members' purchases through the and links, from the previous season. Be sure to enter the team’s discount code during checkout!  As a team affiliate of Swim Outlet, Hillsboro Swim Team earns 8% back on all orders made through the team portal. In addition, those orders made through Swim Outlet also count towards the team's annual total of arena purchases, directly impacting how much support the team will receive from arena the following season.  Members (and their families and friends) are encouraged to shop for their swimming needs through the team’s portal.

Amazon Smile:  Members (and their families and friends) may click on the team's Amazon Smile portal before doing their Amazon shopping, allowing the team to earn 0.5% of the price from eligible purchases. Please note: arena products, suits, team gear, equipment and apparel should be ordered through the arena or SwimOutlet links, as those totals directly impact how much support the team will receive from arena the following season. (Please prioritize using arena and SwimOutlet to purchase arena products, rather than Amazon.)

Fred Meyer:  Members (and their families and friends) may link their Fred Meyer rewards cards to the team, allowing the team to receive quarterly donations based on members' purchases.

Giving Assistant:  Members (and their families and friends) may set up an online account and shop at over 3,000 online cash-back stores and may choose to assign a portion or all of their earned cash back to be given to the team. Stores include: Target, Lowe’s, Dick’s Sporting Goods, Best Buy, Macy’s, Expedia, and thousands more!

Team Dinners

Throughout the season, team dinners are scheduled at local restaurants that will make a donation to the team based on the total sales generated by members (and their families and friends) on a certain day. Location, date and time are announced on the website and via email.

Intel Involved

Intel employees are asked to submit their service hours through the Intel Involved platform. Intel will donate to the team $10 per hour that is volunteered and recorded for the HEAT (up to $10,000 per year). Org name:  Hillsboro Swim Team.  Org ID # 5252.


Nike employees are asked to submit their service hours through the Give Your Best platform. Nike will seed $10 per volunteer hour into an employee’s Giving Account (up to $1,000 per year), enabling the employee to donate that money to the team. Org name: Hillsboro HEAT Swim Team.

Corporate Matching

Members are encouraged to find out if their employers will match their monetary donations and/or volunteer hours given to the team. Corporate donations paid to the team that match members’ monetary donations and/or volunteer hours do not count towards members’ fundraising requirements, but this is a significant way for members to maximize their donations and service hours for the team’s benefit.
