South Western Aquatics swim team is launching a new fundraiser this year that allows families to raise money by making everyday purchases using gift cards. With every purchase made, a percentage of the purchase is sent back to the team each month. 60% of profits will go back to your families account and 40% will go to the club to offset shipping costs and to raise funds for future training equipment for the swimmers. Based on an average return of $360/year, your family would get $216 back to offset their swim fees.
Our goal is to raise $6,000 x 0.40 = $2,400 for the club.
That’s just 30 families buying approx. $650/month worth of gift cards for groceries and gas!! At this modest level, your family would earn $195 for the year which is $117 off your training fees!!

Families go to the FundScrip website (www.fundscrip.com), register, set-up an online payment to purchase their own gift cards and pay for them from their own bank account using an EFT (electronic funds transfer). Note, we need a minimum of 10 EFTs registered before the first shipment can be processed. Each family can also check the total funds raised in their account on-line. You can even set-up recurring orders if you know you want certain cards and amounts each week. Once ordered, cards are shipped to our club within 2 to 3 days already organized in individual envelops for each family. Cards can be picked up on Saturdays at the Tillsonburg Complex following the Monday order date (Cards for Woodstock famlies that don't pratice Saturdays will be taken to Woodstock by our Woodstock Fundscrip coordinator and distributed during the first of the week). To maximize shipping orders, our club will have set shipping dates and ordering deadlines. Depending on demand, we will have either weekly or biweekly shipping dates.
Our club’s invitation code is QG4NX2
