Fundraising is a very important part of our booster club. It allows the athletes to provided services or product to their families and friends and in turn it helps parents in lowering the cost of their booster dues.
As we all know gymnastics is a very expensive sport, so we try and help our members in making this cost more affordable with fundraising. Sometimes we do fundraisers that benefit the individual athlete and family and other times we do fundraisers that benefit the booster club as a whole. The money that we raise as a booster club goes into our general fund and that money is used for many things such as, gym equipment, team events that we plan, goodie bags for the gymnast during season, membership dues, etc...When an athlete fundraises for their individual account, the money they raise goes directly into their personal account. So, you can fundraise as much or as little as you choose, it's all up to you.
We encourage all families to participate in fundraising. It not only supports our booster club but benefits them by helping with their individual costs.
We try and make the fundraisers easy and fun. Some examples would be, family dinner night, Sees Candy, AmazonSmile, car washes, Goodwill Donations, etc... Most of these you are already participating in, so why not put a percentage back into the booster club or your personal account? You will really see how a little participation can go a long way.
