Pool space in NYC doesn’t come cheap, and the current economic climate means some of our community finds swimming hard to afford. Team New York Aquatics, however, is committed to making it possible for LGBT New Yorkers to enjoy the athleticism and community that the team offers. We offer the Fortoul Fellowship, a grant program named in the memory of our beloved coach Paul Fortoul.

Your support can also help swimmers afford competition at the local and international levels, such as the every-four-years Gay Games and the annual International Gay & Lesbian Aquatics Championships. We host a number of annual fundraisers to support our grant programs, but we can always use the extra help.

TNYA is a registered 501(c)(3) organization (Federal tax ID number 13-3745552), and all donations are tax-deductible to the extent permitted by law. If you’d like to make an online donation to support our efforts, we’d be delighted to accept it.
