Warhawk Crew is a club sport that receives no financial support from Fairfax County Public Schools. It is 100% financed and managed through the James Madison Crew Boosters Organization, Inc. (“JMCBO”), a non-profit 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization. JMCBO is funded through a combination of membership dues, fundraising activities, sponsorships and fees collected for certain activities.
Active participation of all families in fundraising efforts helps pay for the club's operating expenses such as coaches' pay, insurance, and regatta fees, as well as capital investments such as boats and engines, and repair and maintenance of these assets. The money earned through fundraising pays for transportation, operational expenses, regatta fees, and all of our capital expenditures (i.e. new boats, oars, motors and all equipment).
The JCMBO asks that each family raise (or contribute) $1000/rower.
Families can easily meet these goals through various fundraising opportunities, including Scrip gift cards available year round, Fall raffle ticket sales, Winter/Spring mulch sales, securing corporate sponsors, making and collecting tax deductible donations and other events.
Annual Raffle: Pick up your raffle ticket package at the Kick-Off Event on September 29, 2021 for all the details. Sell 100 tickets to earn $400 toward your individual goal. Volunteer at Oktoberfest on October 2, 2021 to earn a portion of the total tickets sold during the event. Please make checks payable to JMCBO.
Ergatta: This fun and competitive event will be at the end of Winter Training. We will be incorporating a way to raise money via donations.
Mulch Sale/Delivery: Our biggest fundraiser! Sales are January thru February and Mulch Delivery Day is Saturday, March 5th, 2022. Participation by ALL athletes and at least one parent is required. Mark your calendars! Athletes earn $2/bag so as an example...selling 200 bags earns $400 toward athlete expectation.
Employer Matching/Benevity: Does your employer match donations? If so, you can double your fundraising dollars!
RaiseRight/Scrip: Raise money when you purchase things that you are buying anyway. Registration takes less than 5 minutes on the RaiseRight app.
