We currently have a number of a number of fundraising programs available to help families meet their fundraising obligations. Below is a list and description of some of these programs and how you can use them.
The Fundraising Agreement is available on our Membership Information Page.
Kroger Reloadable Gift Card Program
The Kroger Reloadable Gift Card program is the most popular method of raising money for our team and meeting your fundraising requirement. The process is simple.
Obtain a Kroger gift card from our Kroger program coordinator and use the Kroger gift card to make all your Kroger purchases including groceries, prescriptions, gas, and even Gift Cards to restaurants, movie theatres, and places you shop regularly. The initial balance on the card is $5, and whenever your balance is low, reload the gift card at any register or at the Customer Service counter. The team gets 5% of everything that you put on the card and this goes towards your fundraising obligations.
For more information about the Kroger program and how you can use it to support the team and save you money, read the Kroger Introduction Letter and the humorous but informative 'Confessions' articles below:

Sponsor Letters and Heat Sheet Sales
Selling Heat Sheet Ads is a great way to not only raise money for our team and meet your fundraising requirement, but also to spread the word about H2okie Aquatics to local community members and businesses. Use the letters and forms below to bring to local businesses and ask them if they would like to support H2okie Aquatics.
SCRIPS Program Information
The SCRIPS program allows you to purchase gift cards to hundreds of local restaurants, retailers, and shops and the team gets a percentage of everything you spend. This is a great way to raise money for our team while shopping and eating at places that you always have in the past. More information will be available on using the SCRIPS program soon, but in the meantime, contact the SCRIPS Coordinator for more information.
During the 2009-2010 Short Course season our team tried a poinsettia fundraiser for the first time and had enormous success. This season we hope to start it earlier and have even greater success. Information about the poinsettia fundraiser will be available a the Team Picnic in September.
Some families choose to simply make a donation for their fundraising obligation. NRVA is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization and all donations are tax deductible. Making a donation is a simple and easy way to fulfill your families fundraising obligation.
This is by no means meant to be a complete list of ways to fulfill your fundraising obligation. In the past, we have had several families find creative ways or use their personal talents to fulfill their fundraising obligations. We welcome you to think of new and inventive ways to fulfill your fundraising requirements. In addition, our fundraising committee is constantly looking for new ways to make fundraising simple and effective for our members.
