Boise High Parents and Boosters

Supporting Academics, Activities and Athletics


Fundraising & Grants

Where does your money go?

The Boise Brave Parents and Boosters fundraise to support the Boise High School community through the Booster Program and a bienniel Community Gathering and Fundraiser. The Brave Booster program provides essential operating funds for our players, performers, coaches and teachers. In addition, we provide funds to school programs which are not otherwise supported through the Boise School District. These include funds for the Character Education program, MAC (Math Assistance Center), a Student Assistance fund to help students who struggle financially, academic awards, and through a grant award process to support the 3A’s of Boise High: Academics, Athletics and Activities.

How do the funds get to our programs?

Each season corporate sponsorships and a portion of all individual memberships pass directly into the general overall budget of Boise High School to help supplement our athletic, academic and activities and allow our teachers/coaches to focus on performing at their best and less on fundraising.

How are funds granted to the 3 A’s?

Each year the Boise Brave Parents and Boosters notify all faculty members and coaches of our granting timeline, through the administration and the Brave Weekly. Faculty members and coaches must submit a grant application to apply for funding. A subcommittee reviews each application to verify need and determine the best use of funds to benefit the majority of BHS student body in each of the 3 A’s. The final recommendations are then sent to the board for final decision.

Where does this money come from?

It comes from generous members, donors, alumni, faculty and parents just like you! Parents and the Boise Brave Booster Board raise these funds through corporate sponsorship, individual membership and special events. You can donate to the Boise Brave Boosters at any time, see our Booster page to donate now!

What are the criteria for Grants?

Instructional materials and equipment are eligible. Items funded by the Brave Parents become the property of Boise High. Items which may be funded by the Boise School District, disposable items, and teacher training, stipends or salaries are not eligible.

How much money was donated to BHS?

Last school year, 2018-2019, the Brave Parents gave a total of almost $18,000 in grant funding and just over $21,000 from a Raise the Paddle at the biennial Community Gathering for a new video screen and projector for the old Boise High Auditorium.
