Below, you will find 2 ways to help offset the cost of your child’s swim fees:
1. Fundscrip – volunteer purchase of gift cards
We would encourage you all to get registered with Fundscrip. You can go their website, www.fundscrip.com, to learn more about the gift cards that they offer and to register.
Our group will be doing online ordering only. Payment can be made by Electronic Fund Transfer (EFT). To pay by EFT you must download and fill out the registration form found in the Handouts Tab, include a void cheque, and fax this to 1-800-861-4310 or scan and email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Orders placed by 9:30 am on Monday’s will be received the Thursday of the same week. Note: On holiday Mondays order must be placed by 9:30 am on Tuesday to be received on Friday. Cards can be picked up at the Leisure Centre Pool on Thursdays (Friday if holiday Monday) between 4:30 and 6pm.
If there are any questions or concerns please email Mariquita.
The Swim-A-Thon is also a major fundraiser in which all swimmers participate. It is possible for the team to raise several thousand dollars on the swim-a-thon. This is only possible if both swimmers and parents make a true commitment.
This is an annual fundraising event usually held in May/June. The swim-a-thon is a province-wide endeavour by all teams registered with Swim Ontario. A very large percentage of the money raised is kept by MMST and a small portion is forwarded to Swim Ontario. Please note that this is the only fundraising where a “tax” receipt can be issued by MMST through Swim Ontario.
Additional information will be distributed to all swimmers in the spring, a few weeks prior to the swim-a-thon taking place. If you have any questions, please contact Swim-a-thon coordinator Sara Besik.
