How You Can Help

Swimming makes us happy. And Safe. Swim lessons reduce the risk of drowning by 88% and make communities safer, which is exactly what Carmel Swim Academy has set out to do. We put safety first, alongside excellence, in our learn-to-swim programs for all ages. We welcome the entire community to have a better and friendlier experience with water. Carmel Swim Academy will save lives, and we need your help to make this essential project a reality. Your gift, in any amount, will make the Carmel Swim Academy possible. CSA is actively fundraising to support capital costs for construction and initial operations. However, the pool will be fully self-sustaining through programming fees. Corporate sponsorships, individual donations, joint gifts from your alumni class or colleagues, or in-kind support will ensure our essential programming is available to our entire community. In addition to the special naming opportunities outlined below, gifts of $1,000 or more will be commemorated on our wall of honor.

If you have questions or thoughts about how your gift will make an impact on CSA, please contact Director of Business Development Maggie Mestrich 317-432-6546.
