Quarterback Club A non-profit 501(c)3 organization Organized with the following purposes: – General support for the Coaching Staff – Raising funds required by the football program – Organization of parent volunteer activities to enhance the playing experience of our kids – Organization/sponsorship of social activities for players and their families
Quarterback Club The days of “free” high school sports of our youth are long gone (at least in Douglas County). The school district pays for: – Salaries for most of the coaches – $4, for bus transportation The remainder of expenses are covered by the QB Club. The 2014 QB Club expense budget is $91,750.
Quarterback Club Guiding Principles: Be clear with parents up-front on what it takes to run the program. Create a plan that balances fund-raising with parent contributions. Be creative and aggressive with fundraising. Be frugal but provide for a good experience for our kids Don’t “nickel and dime” parents. Provide for economic support to families when needed. No student should be kept from playing football for financial reasons. Maintain absolute transparency with financials.
