Happy Holidays

From your friends at

The Micheal Phelps Foundation

We are so touched and thankful for everyone's generosity during our eight week online campaign. We raised $17,070 and every dollar will help us continue our fight to prevent drowning deaths. Drowning is the second leading cause of death for children 1-14 years old in the United States. Furthermore, we would like to extend a warm welcome to those that signed up for our newsletters - all 12,000 - and sent Michael a congratulatory message. In a few weeks we will be presenting Michael with all your kind words and well wishes so he can look back on them for years to come. The image above is a visual of the most used words.
Thank You 
A big thanks to Krave for their generous $50,000 donation. From their gift we passed along $20,000 to the Boys & Girls Clubs of Harford County to expand our im program offerings. Michael has been working with the Club since 2001.
And a huge high-five to Jeff Gross, Jaime Staples, Matthew Staples, and Kevin Martin for raising $21,000 and donating 168 hours (including overnights) during the SteamHouse Charity Marathon. Thanks everyone!

im Program Update

In September, we hosted an im Program Training for the Boys & Girls Clubs of Northern Utah, Central Mississippi, Lawrence, Winston-Salem, Greater St. Louis, Los Angeles, Hulburt Field Youth Center and Central Iowa. And in October, we qualified over 20 Special Olympics coaches from Virginia, Vermont, South Dakota, Idaho, North Dakota, Kentucky, Connecticut, Hawaii, Maine, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, and Massachusetts to implement our im program with their swimmers.
Did you know...

At the Michael Phelps Foundation, your gift will be used wisely and generously. On average we spend over 80% of our budget on programming. Your donation helps with the costs of swim instructors, swimsuits, transportation, instructor training and incentives for the kids to keep coming back to the pool so they can learn to be safe and comfortable around water.
