The Swimathon Foundation

Summary: The Swimathon Foundation – the charity behind the world’s biggest fundraising swim, Swimathon.

About The Swimathon Foundation

Every year, Swimathon brings together swimmers in 600 local pools across the nation to challenge their swimming abilities and raise funds for charity. In our 30 year history, swimmers have raised an incredible £50 million for such well-known charities as Marie Curie, Sport Relief, Macmillan Cancer Support, NSPCC, The British Heart Foundation and The Prince's Trust.

The Swimathon Foundation also supports smaller organisations that are involved with local swimming projects through its Community Grants scheme. In the past, a variety of initiatives, including swimming programmes for those with special needs, participation schemes by youth groups, clubs for the elderly, swimming clubs and disability groups have all benefitted from its support.

If you share The Swimathon Foundation's passion for swimming, then why not get involved with Swimathon or find out more about a Community Grant. Applications for the 2019 Swimathon Foundation Community Grants Scheme are now open until Wednesday 3rd April 2019.

The Swimathon Foundation Community Grants Scheme offers funding to groups and individuals who provide and promote swimming in their local community. The Foundation is passionate about encouraging people to get involved with swimming, which it hopes to encourage even further with its Community Grants.
