The LIPSA Action Plan:
Reach every swim school.
Our goal is to have every qualifying swimming facility apply to participate in this program. Swim schools are issued grant funds to provide these lifesaving lessons.
Reach every parent.
By working with Long Island legislators, schools, youth groups and more, we will ensure that every parent knows where swimming lessons are available -- regardless of their ability to pay.
ECAS/Step Into Swim already has an impressive roster of national donors. LIPSA is soliciting local donors to fund local swim lessons. Donations are matched by the Bill Kent Family Foundation and Step Into Swim/PHTA, so a $5,000 donation becomes $15,000.
