We want to thank every donor and volunteer for a successful first year, but we would like to especially thank those who made large donations, without which we could not have achieved our goal.

Please see our Benefactors List for those who gave generously.

Although every dollar is extremely important to the Foundation and every donation, regardless of amount, is put entirely towards supporting the program, there are several donation levels that will be given special recognition by the Foundation:

  • Founder's Circle ($5000+) — Large donations are essential to keeping the Foundation's current programs running and allow additional programs to be initiated. Founder's Circle donors will be invited to special events, recognized throughout the year in reports, communications, on the website, and at events, and given access to unique opportunities throughout the year.
  • Patron ($1000-$4999) — Patron level donors will be invited to special events, recognized in the annual reports, communications, on the website, and at events, and given special consideration throughout the year.
  • Benefactor ($500-$999) — Benefactor level donors will be invited to special events and recognized in the annual report and on the website.

Sponsor a Swimmer Scholar

Trident Swim Foundation now offers the ability for donors to sponsor a year of services for a child.  The cost of sponsoring a Swimmer Scholar for a year is $2000.  This provides the tutoring, coaching, equipment, food, college counseling, SAT Prep, and everything else that help them succeed.  The importance of sponsorship cannot be overstated.  Trident Swim Foundation makes a real difference in the lives of its Swimmer Scholars.
