High Tides Fundraising


Why do we need to fundraise? 

Hutchinson Swim Club, Inc. (High Tides Swim Club) is a non-profit 501(C)(3) organization.  Revenue is derived solely from fundraising and training fees which are used to offset the operating costs to run the Club.  

We welcome any fundraising ideas and initiatives from our members. If you have an Idea contact Emily Reck at [email protected] or call at 507-829-4729.
