Online fundraising with TeamUnify will generate significant revenue for your team, in a very short period of time. Since the introduction of TUMoney in 2013, TeamUnify teams have raised an astonishing $15.125 Million.

Traditionally one of the hardest roadblocks with fundraising is reaching out beyond your team's normal donation circle. The TUMoney platform enables swim teams and participants to reach potential donors at a significantly larger scale.


The traditional fundraising methods of going door-to-door, writing letters, and making phone calls become much less impactful. With this larger outreach, your team will collect FAR more donations in FAR less time!
