Boosters requires all Requests for Funds to be submitted via the link below at least one week prior to the monthly board meeting. During the meeting, requestors are granted 2-5 minutes to present their request. Either the coach/advisor or student(s) may present the request. Once approved, a check will be delivered to the HRVHS Bookkeeper to be deposited in your sport/club account unless other instructions are specified.
Our Main Criteria for Requests

Must reflect our mission statement
Not for classroom improvements, food, parties or funds for recognition
Must benefit the whole team, group, or club rather than an individual
Any time of year -- under $500
Spring -- Any amount, intended for the following school year
Submissions will be reviewed in accordance with all Request for Funds (RFF) Policies. Anything submitted that does not meet the Booster Mission, Guidelines or Submission Requirements may be rejected. Please make sure you read through the guidelines carefully.
