Make a Splash!

Our Mission

The mission of the Make a Splash Campaign is to provide quality recreational activities for local low-income families. Summer swimming is a great way to keep kids off of the street and involved in healthy activity. Through generous donations from the community, the Make a Splash Campaign has been able to distribute over 1,000 swim passes to local youth.


Donations have also been allocated towards scholarships for swim lessons, which are invaluable to a child's development. However, there are still more kids in need of assistance, and donations are greatly appreciated. Your donation to help kids makes a positive change directly in our own community in developing the youth of our city. You can Donate Online to the Make a Splash Campaign.

Thank you Spokane Parks Foundation for the generous grant to provide 150 children with free swim lessons in the 2017 summer season! We are grateful to have the opportunity again this year to provide children in Spokane County with 150 FREE swim lessons.
