We ask all our families to participate in fundraising so we can reduce costs for everyone and continue building a great team! We have designed a menu of fundraising choices that should having something to appeal to everyone. If you have an idea for a fundraiser, please contact a member of the parent board!

Another way to support the team is by making purchases from Amazon — we receive up to 6% of each purchase!

Throughout the year, we have opportunities to work at Madison events, such as selling programs at a Badger Game or distributing T-Shirts at Madison Marathon registration. Madison Events contributes $10 per hour per person to our team when we volunteer. In addition to fundraising, these are great team-building events for our families and older swimmers.
Each spring and fall, we offer bulbs and plants through Flower Power Fundraising. We have always been very pleased with the prices and the quality of the plants, and the team earns 50% of every purchase! Watch for our link to our spring campaign.
When we host a meet, we raise money for the team by selling concessions. We ask our families to donate food or money to buy food to sell, and to volunteer in various roles for the meet.
