SHARING THE POWER OF SWIMMING
A Few Words About Us
The Foundation is the dream come true for two former swimmers whose lives have been shaped by the great sport of swimming and the people who have helped them along the way. Sergio Lopez Miro and Gustavo Calado both feel that by creating the Planet Swim Foundation they can give back to the sport and most importantly touch the lifes of many children by teaching them water safety and introducing them to a sport that could change their lives, the way it did for Sergio and Gus.
The Planet Swim Foundation filed Form 1023 with the Internal Revenue Service requesting recognition of tax exempt status under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code. Our application was approved by the IRS (Certificate of Exemption), with the effective date of exemption retroactive to January 2011. DONATIONS TO THE FOUNDATION ARE TAX DEDUCTIBLE.
