Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Is there a minimum donation amount that you will accept?

A: We gladly accept donations in any amount and greatly appreciate your support.

Q: Can I donate over time?

Q: To whom should I make my donation payable?

A: Friends of Fidalgo Pool, a 501(c)3 entity.  You will receive an acknowledgement letter for tax purposes.

Q: Where are my donations held?

Q: How can I assist the giving campaign?

A: If you’d like to make a contribution to the capital campaign, you can write a check to Friends of Fidalgo Pool and Fitness Center and note on the check that your contribution is for the new pool capital campaign, then mail it to the pool at: Friends of Fidalgo Pool and Fitness Center, 22nd Street, Anacortes, WA 98221

Or you can donate with a credit card by going to the donor page.

Also, part of our focus now is donor outreach.  If there are friends or associates that you believe might be interested in giving, please forward their information through the Contact facility on the web site.  We will reach out to them.  Finally, advocacy is a powerful force in a small community such as ours.  Getting the word out and expressing the need for an updated facility for future generations in conversation or letters to the newspaper helps tremendously.
