Who Can Donate?

PHTA is asking the assistance of everyone to help. 100% of your donation to Step Into Swim goes directly to learn to swim programs. Whether you are an individual that loves swimming, an aquatic professional, or a company looking to do something positive in the industry - We need YOU to support this important initiative.

What Organizations Will Benefit?

Various organizations in the U.S. that provide swim lessons to children that cannot afford to learn this life-saving skill of swimming because of their economic or cultural standing. Each year, PHTA accepts applications from new or reoccurring organizations. Based on a set criterion, the committee selects organizations that will help contribute to creating 1 million new swimmers.
