Columbia Falls Swim Team


CFST is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that is run by a group of volunteer Board of Directors.  Coaching staff are the only paid employees.

As with any non-profit, we rely heavily on fundraising, as well as volunteer hours from our swim families.

Historically, we’ve raised funds through raffle ticket sales, butter braid sales, grants, etc.


Have you ever wondered….

  • How is the swim team funded?

  • What do registration fees cover?

  • How does the team operate?

  • How can I help?

These are all great questions, and we have answers!!!


The 2016 Financial Overview presentation was put together, in an effort to better educate our team on what it takes to operate.  It’s purpose is to have full disclosure of operational expenses & income, and to open up conversations about how each of the members plays a role in the health of the organization.

Please take the time to look it over, and as always, ask questions if you have them!

Thank you for helping CFST be a healthy, thriving non-profit that positively impacts the youth of our community.
