Youth Swim Fund

Youth Swim Fund

The Dolphin Youth Swim Fund is dedicated to making sure San Francisco’s kids know how to swim. We have funded neighborhood swim teams, and continue to see that learning to swim, being part of a team, and knowing somebody cares about you and about what you’re doing increases the odds of success for all. 

This year, our hope is to support organizations in providing opportunities for underserved youth in San Francisco and the Bay area to learn to swim. A $100 donation provides eight weeks of swim lessons for one child at the Boys and Girls Club. Our goal is to raise and distribute $10,000, serving at least 100 youth, in 2023.
