What is + POOL?
+ POOL is a plus-shaped, water-filtering, floating swimming pool, designed to filter the very river that it floats in through the walls of the pool. + POOL’s aim is to give New Yorkers and its visitors access to clean, swimmable river water. We’re raising money for the next phase of + POOL’s development and educational programs—you can be a part of it by buying a pool tile or making a donation.
Why buy a tile?
In 2013, we established a fund for + POOL and have been selling tiles one by one to help fund final design and construction of + POOL. For each tile purchased, your name will be engraved and immortalized on one of 70,000+ tiles lining the walls and deck of + POOL. There’s several levels of tiles; $25 gets your name on a tile with 7 other randomly selected backers; $199 gets you a white replica tile to show off, and reserves your spot as one of the first to take a dip in + POOL; $249 gets you a blue replica tile, and 2 First Dips passes; and $1,000 gets you a blue tile, 2 First Dips passes, and sponsors 3 swimmers in our Summer Bluefish swim program, which teaches kids who live in public housing how to swim for free! Sang a specialized marble tile for $10,000. Or give what you can, whether $10 or $10,000, your donation will help bring + POOL closer to reality.
Where does my money go?
All funds raised directly support + POOL’s staff and team’s work with the design and permitting of + POOL in New York, as well as our educational programs. Your contribution is also 100% tax deductible as + POOL is certified 501c3 organization with a public mission to make + POOL available for everyone.
What's the Status?
+ POOL is currently in conversations with the NYC Mayor's Office to determine where we can physically install + POOL. Once we determine where we're allowed to build; we’ll prepare final, site-specific drawings for the permitting and construction phases. In the meantime, we’re running a summer swim camp for kids, teaching K - 12 students about water quality testing and design, and lots more. Every donation helps to build not just a pool, but an entire community around it.
