Supporting Our Student Athletes: The Importance of Fundraising

As the new school year begins, it's crucial to recognize the significance of fundraising for our student athletes. From purchasing essential equipment to covering participating fees and attending valuable clinics, fundraising plays a vital role in ensuring our athletes have the resources they need to excel. At GGBC (Green and Gold Booster Club), we are committed to providing numerous fundraising opportunities throughout the year, allowing everyone to contribute and support our talented student athletes while treating themselves to something special.

  1. Equipment Needs: One of the primary reasons fundraising is essential for student athletes is to fulfill their equipment needs. Whether it's new jerseys, protective gear, or training equipment, these items can be costly. By organizing fundraisers, we can alleviate the financial burden on athletes and their families, ensuring they have access to the necessary tools to perform at their best.

  2. Participation Fees: Participation fees can often be a barrier for some students who wish to join a sports team. Fundraising helps alleviate these fees, making it more accessible for all students to participate in their desired athletic activities. By removing financial barriers, we can promote inclusivity and ensure that every student has an equal opportunity to pursue their athletic passions.

  3. Clinics and Training Opportunities: Attending clinics and training programs is crucial for the growth and development of student athletes. These opportunities provide valuable guidance, skill enhancement, and exposure to higher levels of competition. However, these clinics often come with a significant cost. Fundraising allows us to support our athletes in attending these clinics, enabling them to learn from experts in their respective sports and gain a competitive edge.

  4. Team Fundraising Options: In addition to booster-wide fundraising initiatives, individual teams also have the opportunity to organize their own fundraising events. This allows teams to take ownership of their financial needs and fosters a sense of unity and camaraderie among teammates. From car washes to pancake breakfasts, these team-specific fundraisers not only generate funds but also promote teamwork and collaboration.

  5. Variety of Fundraising Options: at GGBC, we understand that everyone has different preferences when it comes to supporting our student athletes. That's why we offer a wide range of fundraising options to cater to diverse interests. From indulging in delicious Krispy Kreme donuts, or MOD Pizza to purchasing spirit wear or participating in catalog sales, there's something for everyone to contribute and enjoy. These fundraising opportunities not only benefit our athletes, but also allow supporters to treat themselves to something special.

  6. Direct Donation Fundraising: Direct donations to teams and student athletes are another crucial aspect of fundraising that should not be overlooked. Whie participating in various fundraising events and purchasing merchandise are fantastic ways to support our student athletes, direct donations provide a direct and immediate impact. These donations go directly towards meeting the specific needs of individual teams. These donations also provide a sense of encouragement and motivation to the athletes, knowing that their community believes in their abilities and is invested in their success. You can make a direct donation to any team by visiting and sorting by team.

Fundraising is an integral part of supporting our student athletes at Marysville Getchell High School and GGBC. By contributing to their equipment needs, participation fees, and training opportunities, we ensure that every student has an equal chance to excel in their chosen sport. Moreover, fundraising initiatives foster a sense of community and teamwork among athletes, coaches, and supporters. So, let's come together, participate in the various fundraising opportunities throughout the year, and who our unwavering support for our talented student athletes. Together, we can make a difference and help them reach new heights of success.
