Just like many other sports and team organizations, swim teams often find themselves in need of additional funds to help team members cover expenses for equipment, training tools, and travel expenses for competitions. Hosting a swim-a-thon and exploring swim team fundraising ideas can be a great way to bring in extra funding for your swim team.
If your Swim Team has decided to host a fundraising event, you’ll need the right tools to help you succeed. Utilizing Fundraising Software will help you extend the reach of your fundraising event and raise more money than you thought possible.
Utilizing Swim Team Fundraising Software
DoJiggy offers a complete online registration and donation management system for swim team fundraising initiatives in which individual and team participants collect and track donations and pledges. DoJiggy Pledge allows your Swim Team to multiply the fundraising dollars raised as each of your swimmers tap into their group of friends and family to raise funds for your swim team.
Get started with your swim team fundraising efforts via a free trial of our software.
Swim Team coaches and parents are able to easily configure registration fees, a minimum participant fundraising goal, and an event waiver which participants read and approve to register. Teams will have the option of the pledge type they would like to receive – flat-rate donations ($25 or $50) or per unit of effort pledges in which donations are calculated based on the number of laps swam.
