#GivingTuesday– a global day dedicated to giving.

What is #GivingTuesday? #GivingTuesday is a global day of giving that kicks off the charitable season, when many focus on their holiday and end-of-year giving. It has become a movement that celebrates and supports giving and philanthropy. #GivingTuesday is celebrated annually on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving. This year, giving Tuesday is November 28, 2023.

Over the years, Badger families, alumni, and friends have donated to Badger’s Giving Tuesday initiative to assist the club in a multitude of ways. Some of the recent initiatives have helped fund new lane lines, insulated pool covers, resistance training equipment, scholarship funds and operational expenses. The cost of being a top program is rising rapidly and Badger cannot do it alone. Tuition does not cover the full cost of the club operations and we must rely on the generosity of donors to ensure the club’s sustainability.

This year, Badger is once again asking for your support on Giving Tuesday and throughout the remainder of the 2023 giving season. Badger Swim Club is a non-profit 501c-3 charitable organization and donations are tax deductible up to the fullest extent of the law. Speak with your accountant for specific details.

Support #GivingTuesday by making a donation to Badger Swim Club to help swimmers continue to grow, improve, and become the best they can be, in and out of the water.
