Dear TSM Families,

The TSM Board invites you to participate in TSM’s Annual Giving Campaign. With a lot of options to give thanks and share your generosity this time of year we would like to remind you why TSM should be at the top of your list. TSM is not just a high performance swim team that produces college student-athletes, world champions and Olympians. TSM is the largest provider of youth aquatics programs on the Westside. TSM is a not-for profit,  501(c)(3) organization that has served youth in our community for more than 60 years. As a parent-owned organization, with parent volunteers performing many administrative functions, the vast majority of TSM revenue goes straight to what it takes to produce water strong, water safe youth--pool space, world-class coaches, and financial assistance for swimmers who need it.

Two new initiatives being spearheaded by the club include increasing the pool space in Santa Monica and coordinating a program in conjunction with the city and school district that aims to make every child in Santa Monica water safe. 

We want every family to be able to enjoy what TSM has to offer. Unfortunately, this is not possible without your generous support. No amount is too small to help youth in our community pursue excellence through the sport of swimming. Consider this:

*$25 pays for a lesson to help a child become water safe and to introduce them to the sport of swimming

*$50 pays their lessons for a week

*$75 covers the competitive team's lane fees at the Swim Center on a Saturday morning

*$100 allows a  Age Group 3 & Senior level  swimmer to train alongside Olympians at the Olympic Training Center

*$200 allows a Seal, Age Group 1  & 2 level swimmer  to train for a month

*$500 sends a TSM coach to a national/international conference or event to learn the most advanced training methods in the world

*$1000 pays for all of that

But wait, there's more! Your tax-deductible donation will enter you into a raffle to win a unique prize:

*  an Olympic Training Team  swag bag, which includes a new speedo back pack, 2 Olympic Training Team t-shirts, 2 Olympic Training Team baseball hats and  a variety of other cool swim gear.

Please donate today! It’s easy. Just email Raphael Goodman at finance@teamsantamonica.org and let him know how much you would like to donate. Your TSM account will be billed. All donations made on or before December 1, will be included in the raffle. Don't miss your chance to support TSM and win a prize.

Water Strong, Water Safe. Go TSM!

The TSM Board
