How does the Boosters promote athletics?  Weekly Booster Buzz member email, Awards, Another Eagle Goes to State yard signs

How does Boosters provide funding support?  Booster Grants, Sports Fee Scholarships (covers required sports fees for hardship athletes), Athletic Trainer support, Senior Scholarships, etc.   Funding History 

Can I make a designated gift to a certain sport?  District funding falls short of meeting the needs for most sports.  For this reason families are asked to participated in fundrasing activities.  The Booster Club provides a secure and safe account structure for programs to collect donations for program needs.  This can be done online (Designated Donations), for by check, payable to the IHS Booster Club, subject line: YOUR sport.  General donations designated to a sport can also be made to ASB by clicking HERE.  Donations made through ASB or Boosters are collected in designated (restricted to that activity) accounts.  The difference between donations made through ASB and Boosters is that designated Booster funds have less restrictions are more accessible to the Coach than ASB funds.  

Hardship:  Students that have challenges meeting the minimum financial expectations to participate in a sport.  The Booster Club provided $4000 to ASB over the 2017-2018 school year for Sports Fee scholarships.  Each sports has scholarship opportunities for families that indicate hardship.  Privacy laws prohibit the school from sharing names of students on Free and Reduce.  For this reason students must confide in their coach the need for financial assistance.   

Athletic Director:  Luke Ande  

Sport Specific Advisory Committees:  The Booster Club provides an official framework to support designated/specific fundraising efforts. Each activity utilizing the Booster Club for fundraising effort has a parent lead Advisory Committee of at least three (3) appointed parents in that activity. Funds raised by Advisory Committees will be earmarked as “restricted funds” and held by the Booster Club for the benefit of the team.  Contact the Booster Club if (a) you would like to be considered to be a member or chair of a new sport-specific Advisory Committee, or (b) you can recommend another parent to be an Advisory Committee member or chair.  See Advisory Committees for more information               Click Here with questions.
