17th Annual FASST FUNDraiser
Tuesday June 26th, 2018
DURING ALL PRACTICES
GOAL: $15,000

This information is on our website in 2 places: www.swimfasst.com
(1) A tab called 17th Annual FASST FUNDraiser
(2) Under the PARENT tab, a tab called FASST FUNDraiser

You can donate to FASST one of two ways: as always we want every team member to participate.

1) Flat Donation

2) Pledges – on June 26, 2018 your swimmer earns money for their team by swimming lengths of the pool for a period of one hour. Swimmers can collect pledges per lap from family, friends and businesses. For example, if you receive a pledge for $0.50 per lap and you swim 70 laps, the swimmer would collect $35.

Your help and support of this program will truly make a difference in the lives of our FASST swimmers. Every dollar raised will benefit our athletes and volunteer coaches directly. If you have any additional questions, please feel free to contact a member of the FASST Booster Club Board of Directors. Thank you for your donation!

Prizes will be given out at $20, $40 and $75 increments for money raised. Visit the front tables on MONDAYS to collect your prizes once donations have been received! Prizes include toy fish, diving toys and swim inflatables. ALL SWIMMERS must participate in the fundraiser!

FASST FUNDRAISER DONATION FORM

Dear _______________________________________________,

I am helping my swim team, Frisco Amateur Summer Swim Team (FASST), build a stronger team and I am asking for your support. FASST has made a huge difference in my life. Through swimming, I have learned the power of discipline, teamwork, and setting goals. I especially enjoy the fun that comes when all three of these traits are encouraged by great coaches. Our Coaches at FASST make swimming more than just exercise. They make swimming an activity that builds character for life. FASST is Frisco’s community swim team with over 20 years of history in Frisco. Our team has a reputation of qualifying for the State swim tournament many years in a row and usually finishes in the top 3 at the state meet! That is why I am swimming in the FASST FUNDraiser on June 26, 2018. In 1 hour, I will try to swim _____ laps! That is a lot of swimming, but it’s all for a great cause – continuing our success as a swim team, and supporting our teams programs including funding many scholarships for our amazing high school volunteer coaches. Your pledge will help me meet my goal of $__________ and help FASST raise $15,000 towards a stronger future. The easiest way for you to make a contribution is go online to:

https://swimfasst.ejoinme.org/MyEvents/FASSTFundraiser2018/tabid/975175/Default.aspx

It is a secure website where you can donate any amount you desire to our team. If you would rather give by check or make a pledge based on the number of laps I swim, simply use the form below and mail it back to me. Whichever way you choose to give, please know you are giving to an organization that has made a huge difference in my life.

Thank you for helping me to reach my goal!
