HOW TO GET INVOLVED
“What Does NAC Mean To Me?” Video Contest
In the time leading up to this event, we will be collecting videos from the NAC competitive team athletes. Videos should answer the question “What does NAC mean to me?” and can be done with as much creativity as you see fit. The videos will be featured during the fundraising event from Oct 1-10 and will be voted on during that week. At the end of the 10 days, we will have one winning video that will be announced and the winner will receive 1 full year of free training fees! In order to submit your video you will need to email it to email@example.com by September 30, 2020.
Setup Your Personal Fundraising Page to Collect Donations
The best way to raise the most money for the team is to set up your own personal fundraising page through our online giving platform. The process is simple and there is an online tutorial if you need help. Setting up your personal page will allow you to create your own personal goal of how much you want to raise, as well as send out emails to your family and friends, linking them to your individual page, so that your donations can be tracked there. You may also include your photo and/or a story of why you swim for NAC and what impact this club has had on your life on your personal page. These personal pages will be a great way to get the message out about our campaign from your own unique perspective.
NAC members who have a payment account setup with us can give their personal contribution monthly by requesting to be billed these funds. For the Competitive Team Families, if they commit to giving $60 per month, they will reach their goal of raising over $350 for the team. You must make your request by filling out the online commitment form by September 25th. The billing will start on October 1, 2020 and go through March 1, 2020. While the goal for Competitive Team families is $350 per family, you may choose to give whatever amount you can on a monthly basis.
Many companies have a donor matching program where employees who donate to an organization of their choice can fill out a request for their company to match their donation. These company matches typically need to be initiated by the employee through their business and will require proof of the donation, plus necessary non-profit status documentation from NAC to process your request. Please reach out to Ashley Blackburn at firstname.lastname@example.org if you need more information from us to process your company match.
Local Business & Corporate Donations
Many area businesses and corporations frequently donate or give grants to local nonprofits. The NAC Board and staff have been inquiring with some of the larger corporations in the area already. If you have connections with a local business, corporation or foundation that has a donation or grant request program, please reach out to Ashley Blackburn at email@example.com so that we can work together to make a request for NAC.
