Online Payment Options Make Fundraising Easier for Swim Schools

Posted on Nov 18, 2014 11:39:00 AM by Ashley Wood

One of the easiest ways to simplify fundraising for your school  is to update the traditional donation procedure. If your group has enough loyal followers, you can simply ask them for money and they'll donate. For many swim clubs, however, the pool of eager donors is too small to do that. This requires motivating those who are already purchasing something from your school to donate, and doing so during a registration is one of the best ways to do that. This is because convenience gives otherwise-uninterested people reasons to give your school money.


While students may not like going around collecting donations, one of the bigger problems is getting the money in time. This problem has grown in recent years thanks to the fact that many people don't use checks anymore. Students can have trouble collecting even when people are agreeable because they may not be able to find their checkbooks and don't want to use cash as an alternative.

One easy way around this issue is to set up online payments. This will save you from having to send your members out to houses to collect payments since the donation process can be done anytime, anywhere online. Convienience is key when it comes to fundraising so making the process as easy as possible for parents and non-members will help achieve your monetary goal. 

This system makes everything more convenient for buyers as well as your group and its members. You won't have to worry about students losing money or not being able to catch people at home, and those who donate to your organization's fundraising campaign won't have to find their checkbooks or worry about whether they have any money in a checking account they may not often use. Everything will be in a clear, easy-to-understand format that allows you to keep track of donations
