ABOUT BOOSTERS

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.

In the past ten years, more than $1,300,000 was raised and disbursed thanks to the ongoing generosity of families and merchants in the Glenbard West community.

Booster members work all-year-long promoting West spirit by 

  • selling Glenbard West gear and sportswear 

  • flipping pancakes at the Homecoming Pancake Breakfast 

  • manning the Homecoming bonfire  

  • chaperoning the Homecoming dance 

  • serving up steaming plates of pasta at the “Pack the Place” winter sports extravaganza

  • hosting annual fundraisers for adults in the community

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.
