SNC is introducing this season, a new and improved Swim-a-Thon fundraising platform, which is different to the Raise-a-thon platform. Clubs and individuals are invited to sign up for free by visiting https://donate.swimming.ca/ and following the three easy steps to begin their fundraising efforts.
Swim-a-Thon campaigns are now eligible and run until August 31, 2023. Outlined below under the fundraising windows available for this season:
– March 1, 2023 to May 31, 2023
– May 1, 2023 to August 31, 2023
Clubs will continue to receive a grant for 90% of the gross amount raised through Swim-a-Thon. Of the 10% retained by Swimming Canada, the Provincial Section is given a 4% grant which Provincial Sections use to support Swim-a- Thon; 3-4% is for processing fees, updates to the Swim-a-Thon online system, and prizing; and the balance of 1-2% goes towards National swimming programs.
