Poseidon Capital Campaign, download pledge form here.
For the 2012-13 swim year, Poseidon requires each member family to raising $300.
The Great Lakes Scrip Program has been a successful way for families to raise money. Using gift cards to make purchases. Gifts cards are purchased at face value, but a rebate that goes back to the team when purchased is passed along to the families - reducing their annual obligation.
Other forms of fundraising, like advertising and sponsorships are still available and can be used in lieu of the 2 programs stated.
Papa John's Bake Sale
Order pizza from Papa John's Tuesday - Thursday the second week of the month and earn money for our team. Just use the promo code PSDN when ordering.
Gift Card Program
Information is distributed to get you started with the gift card program. We use the Great Lakes Scrip Program (www.glscrip.com). Their website gives you lots of updates and current information on vendors and the percentage earned for each.
Gift cards are ordered every Monday morning, 10 AM. You can expect delivery between Wednesday and Friday afternoon of that week. You can order by registering on line at www.shopwithscrip.com. Set up your account using the Poseidon Enrollment Code 12818A3D1L8L7 to have earnings go toward your fundraising obligation. Now you have 2 ways to pay for gift cards. You can still write the team a check for your order, or set up PrestoPay for your account.
You order on line, pick up your gift cards here at the pool. ScripNow and reloadable scrip do not require pick up. ScripNow is done by email and reloadables load directly to the card you have.
If you ever have any questions, please call the office at 447-2487.
Poseidon is now enrolled in PrestoPay!
PrestoPay™ is a convenient way for your families to pay your organization for their orders, on-line, at the time they place their order. GLSC will accept their payment on your behalf.
GLSC will debit the designated account for the face value of the order plus a small convenience fee of $0.39 on the day the order is placed. The funds will be held by GLSC until you release your organization's order. At that time their payment (minus the convenience fee) will be applied to the total you owe us for your organization’s order. When you are releasing orders to us, the ones that have been pre-paid via PrestoPay will be clearly indicated.
Families can still elect to pay your organization via check. They will be given the option to select their payment type each time they order, during the check-out process.
PrestoPay payments are made to GLSC on behalf of your non-profit organization. If one of your families pays for their order with PrestoPay™, and their payment is returned or rejected for any reason, one of the following actions will be taken:
If the family order has not been released by your organization, we will cancel the family order and CHARGE YOUR NON-PROFIT ORGANIZATION A BANK CHARGE OF $30.00. Your family will then owe your non-profit organization the $30.00 fee.
If the family order has been released by your organization, we will CHARGE YOUR NON-PROFIT ORGANIZATION for the face value of your order, PLUS A BANK CHARGE OF $30.00. Your family will then owe your non-profit organization that full amount.
An advertising/sponsorship agreement is available here, Advertisement/Sponsorship Agreement 12-13. The prices for the different sizes of ads and sponsorships are listed on the agreement. You may make as many copies of this agreement as you need. Sample programs are available from the office if you need them. Poseidon will be hosting 10 meets 2012-13. Ads may be placed on the website anytime. 50% of the ad and sponsorship dollars go toward your fundraising obligation.
Of course you may always choose to make a charitable contribution, Poseidon is a non-profit organization and any amount above the contractual amount could be tax deductible. Company match programs can be used when applicable. There are often restrictions on this type of giving so read the rules carefully.
Any questions may be directed to the office, 447-2487.
