Local Partner Program Fundraising

The USA Swimming Foundation’s
Make a Splash Initiative
Local Partner Program Fundraising, Donations and Logo Usage


If you are interested in raising money for the USA Swimming Foundation’s Make a Splash initiative, or if you are interested in raising money for your own club/team/learn-to-swim program and want to use the Make Splash name and/or logo mark, please read these important guidelines!

The USA Swimming Foundation strongly supports Make a Splash Local Partners who raise funds to support their own scholarship funds.  If you are conducting a fundraiser for this purpose, please note that Local Partners raising funds to stay within their organization:


  • May not indicate in any way that they are raising money on behalf of the USA Swimming Foundation or its Make a Splash initiative.  You may, however, say that you are “[Insert Name Here] organization, a Make a Splash Local Partner.”
  • May not use the USA Swimming Foundation/Make a Splash logo for fundraising purposes (promotional purposes are allowed, subject to approval by the USA Swimming Foundation and compliance with USA Swimming Foundation logo standards)


If you are interested in doing a fundraiser to the support the USA Swimming Foundation and its mission to save lives and build champions—in the pool and in life, please check out the following references:

  • Third Party Fundraising Guidelines 
    An event organized by an individual, community group or company that is not an official USA Swimming Foundation activity is considered to be a “third party” event. Acting independently and with the USA Swimming Foundation’s approval, third party events are an important resource for raising funds to help us
    support our mission. 

  • Swim-a-Thon™
    Hosting a Swim-a-Thon is a fun and easy way to raise money for your organization and support the USA Swimming Foundation at the same time! Participants in your Swim-a-Thon earn money by swimming lengths of the swimming pool. Swimmers get pledges from family, friends, local businesses and
    neighbors to support their efforts.  A minimum of 5% of your proceeds will be used by the USA Swimming Foundation to support its mission, and to provide great prizes for your team!
