Grant Requests

2020 Grant Requests

Due May 8, 2020

The CHS Booster Club is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization that supports the Washington Interscholastic Activities Association (WIAA) athletics and actvities at Capital High School.

What items can be requested?

Grants can be used to fund any expense that can be paid for from the athletic or activity’s Associated Student Body (ASB) account. If you have questions about whether the expense is appropriate, please check with the Athletic/Activities Director. The WIAA also has general information about the use of ASB funds.

The request may cover more than one item or level (i.e., uniforms and equipment, varsity/junior varsity/C team) and may be used by more than one team (i.e., equipment shared by track and cross country, boys and girls soccer, all activities that use the theater).

All uniform requests must be items that remain with the school (not participant specific) and consistent with the ASB uniform rotation.

Who can apply for the grants?

Each Capital High School WIAA athletic or activity may request funds. The head coach/teacher must submit the online form. If they are not available contact Cristin Wilson.

How are grants awarded?

The CHS Booster Club raises money for grants from concession sales and the CHS Booster Club Auction. The CHS Booster Club Board awards grants based on funds available and in a manner consistent with the WIAA policies and following priorities:

  1. Safety (i.e., padding for volleyball standards, wrestling mats)
  2. Equipment required for competition (i.e., uniforms, balls, microphones)
  3. Other items or expenses for the team or activity (training equipment, entrance fees)

We also consider the number of students that benefit from the grant request, equity issues, and the CHS Booster’s goals of promoting health, sportsmanship, physical fitness, attendance, support, and enrichment for CHS students.

What is the deadline?

Complete and submit the online application form. Grant applications must be received by Friday, May 8, 2020.

When will funds be available?

The CHS Booster Club intends to notify grant recipients by the end of May. Funds will be deposited directly to the athletic or activity’s ASB account when the CHS Booster Club is presented with a purchase order for the granted item.

Expiration

Any grant money that is not used by the beginning of the next award cycle will be returned to the Booster Club. The award cycle begins in April.
