Board of Trustees' Goal:

To build up a supporting operating fund that will yield income that can support users’ fees and rentals making the pool totally self-supporting.

One time donations or pledges budgeted over a three-year period are ways in which you can help support the pool.

Bequests through wills that offer tax benefits and more substantial giving in the long run are welcome.

Tax-deductible donations can be mailed to:
