Glenbard West Boosters is primarily a fundraising organization with more than 500 members and 100+ Board members that plans various Booster-sponsored fundraising and service projects. The funds raised enhance academic and athletic programs and extra-curricular activities that enrich the student experience at Glenbard West.

DID YOU KNOW?
During the pandemic, Boosters distributed more than $100,000 in grants to enhance the Glenbard West student experience. We also raised enough money to fully fund requested 2021-22 grants and scholarships, plus expand discretionary grants that give the school financial flexibility to add student opportunities that may arise due to changing health protocols.
