Funding the Clubs, Activities and Teams

Through membership dues, donations, yard sign sales, concessions stand sales, and mulch sales, the MVHS Booster Club is able to support the many clubs, activities and teams at Mill Valley.

Here is a sampling of what we do:

2 microwaves for the cafeteria

Debate Club $200

Silver Stars $980

Tennis $1150

D4URS funds to variety of clubs/teams $4000

The MVHS Booster Club is always busy offering ways for you to raise funds for your club, activity or team.  Some fundraisers rely heavily on the student's involvement, others tend to be more parent involved.  It is a community effort and we strive to ensure everyone can benefit.

Here are the fundraising opportunities you can take advantage of:

​1. Concession Stand Shifts

2. Lakeside Speedway Clean-up

3. Funding Requests

4. Mulch Madness Sales



Concession Stand Shifts


Shifts are available for anyone during most Varsity home sports events.  For every shift worked, the Booster Club will pay $20 to the club, activity or team of your choice.  Notices of sign-ups are sent through Skyward messages and sign-ups are done through Sign-up Genius. Parents and students can work these shifts.  BONUS: NHS members can received community service hours for their shifts!

Lakeside Speedway Clean-up


Picking up trash is not for everyone, but those organizations who participate in the Lakeside Speedway Clean-up sign-up year after year.  This fundraiser is limited to certain times of the year -- when the Speedway is open -- and by the weather.  Groups signing up for a clean-up shift must have at least 10 members committed to participate, more is encouraged.  Trash bags are provided.  It is suggested you wear old clothes and bring work gloves. While this fundraiser is heavily student involved, parents have been known to help out too.

Funding Requests


Funding Requests are requests made directly to the Booster Club by an organization.  The coach/teacher sponsor of an organization  must get the form from Mr. Jerald VanRheen or Ms. Marilyn Chrisler.  It should be filled out and returned to the Booster Club mailbox in the MVHS office or emailed to  A representative of the organization should plan to attend the Booster Club meeting when the request will be discussed. We fund requests for entry fees, equipment, new club seed money, and printing costs.  We do not fund requests for uniforms. 


Mulch Madness Sales

The Booster Club partners with The Grass Pad to provide bags of mulch for our Mulch Madness fundraiser.  Clubs, activities and teams sell bags from mid- to late February through the first part of March.  The mulch is delivered to MVHS and those organizations participating deliver the bags sold.  This fundraiser is an all-hands-on-deck event with students and parents participating. Orders are placed in February or March, either through a participating team, club or activity OR through the Booster Club's on-line store.
