GRANTS

The primary mission of Glenbard West Boosters is to raise money for academic and athletic programs and extra-curricular activities that enrich the student experience at Glenbard West.

Boosters distributes more than $120,000 in grants annually to enhance the Glenbard West student experience. One of the unique things about Glenbard West grants is that the amount distributed each year is equitably divided between academics, athletics and activities, giving roughly 1/3 of funds to each area.

 

As you will see, some of the larger grant requests to be given out in the 2024-2025 school year are for two new sousaphones, a variety of athletic uniforms, startup costs related to forming the new Robotics Club and the annual Post Prom Event hosted by West Nation.

Boosters will also fund $10,000 in scholarships for the 2024-2025 school year. We are fortunate to have such a supportive and generous community that enables Boosters to give so much back to Glenbard West.
