We build your website We will create and host on swimacrossamerica.org a fundraiser page for your swim; you provide a couple of paragraphs why you are hosting the swim and pictures.
We help you promote We promote pool swims to our database of more than 100,000 supporters via our e-newsletters and social media.
We help you send emails We provide e-mail messages that you may send to your swimmers encouraging their participation or you provide your contacts and we will e-mail them on your behalf.
We give back to your pool We know pool space isn’t free. We know you might want to provide donuts, coffee and other stuff to create a fun day of swimming for your pool swim fundraiser. We offer up to 8% of the proceeds donated through your event page or checks mailed to SAA back to your club to help cover costs you incur. Should your club forego the 8%, we will donate that money to our beneficiaries.
We provide insurance If requested, we will provide the facility hosting the Pool Swim Fundraiser a $1,000,000 certificate of insurance naming the facility as an SAA additional insured. The COI will be good for day of the pool swim fundraiser and your swimmers will be required to sign an SAA waiver.
We provide swag and signage We provide SAA branded swim caps for your participants. We provide an SAA branded banner for your facility. We provide fundraising incentives for participants who reach donation levels.
WHERE DOES THE MONEY GO

The Metuchen Swim was the first ever SAA Pool Program Event and has grown each year since then. Open only to Metuchen Club swimmers and family members, this event is extremely community oriented and has grown into a community tradition. Our only challenge is coming up with new prizes to give them every year!
