CLUB SUPPORT PROGRAM
Fundraising is a crucial component of the ongoing success of the Santa Barbara Swim
Club, a non-profit organization. While your monthly dues cover training and pool fees,
running a successful swim club relies also on generous fundraising contributions from
our members to support a financial budget that includes coach travel to and from swim
meets, pool facility rental for training and competitions, swim scholarships,
administrative fees such as insurance, billing and accounting, and many other expenses.
Financial support from our members is very necessary and very much appreciated!
What is Club Support?
Club Support is the annual fundraising obligation of each member / family. The annual
Club Support obligation for SBSC is $250 per family.
How can I meet my annual Club Support obligation?
There are several ways to meet your annual fundraising obligation. Please refer to the subtabs under the "Fundraising"
tab on the home page. Some families prefer to simply write a check in the amount of $250 to cover their
annual fundraising obligation. If you prefer this option, checks can be made out to SBSC and delivered to the swim office.
How will I know the status of my annual fundraising obligation?
The SBSC Board of Directors communicates regularly with SBSC members regarding
their annual fundraising requirements. This communication includes a periodic Club
Support statement that reflects where members stand in meeting their annual obligation.
This statement is delivered at least quarterly via e-mail. Questions about your Club
Support statement can be directed to the swim office at email@example.com.
Is there anything else I should know about the SBSC Club Support program?
Yes, two more things. First, please note that if your children swim in the Novice group
only, you do not yet have a Club Support obligation. You will receive your first
statement once your swimmer starts in the Age Group program. Second, please note that
excess donations in one fiscal year may not be carried forward to a subsequent year or be
transferred to any other monies owed to the club (i.e. monthly dues).
If there are any questions about this program please feel free to email our club president
We value your support and thank you for your involvement in SBSC!
