Ionia Affiliated Athletic Boosters

 

Greetings Bulldog Supporters,

With all sports now being able to compete, it is time to get our Super Booster program up and running for the 2020-21 sports seasons.  This year will look a little different for our teams as the Governor’s Executive Order limits spectators, concessions, and mandates masks for everyone.  It is also creating added expenses for our programs and limiting revenue that we normally use to offset many of these costs.  

The Ionia Affiliated Athletic Boosters (IAAB) remains committed to its mission of supporting our athletes and helping Ionia Public Schools avoid having pay-to-play like so many of our neighboring communities.  Year after year, the IAAB has continued to purchase much needed equipment for our athletes and help with facility improvements that the district's athletic budget simply can’t afford.  Last year alone, the boosters provided around $43,000 in additional funds to our 25 athletic programs.  The IAAB stepped up and bought hand sanitizer and thermometers as soon as teams got the green light to start practicing in June.  

This year's need is going to be even greater as our school’s athletic budget has been reduced in anticipation of added educational costs.  As a result, the athletic department will have to turn to the IAAB for even more funds to support our kids.  The boosters typically raise funds through concessions sales, 50/50 raffles, advertising, and numerous other small fundraisers.  The largest portion of their funds come from their Super Boosters program in which businesses and families can show their bulldog pride through their financial support.  The Governor’s Executive Order limiting spectators directly impacts the boosters ability to raise money at games through concessions and 50/50 sales, which will have a huge impact on our teams.  

We are turning to our community’s businesses and families to dig deep and show their Bulldog GRIT by becoming a Super Booster for the 2020-21 school year.  Please fill out the enclosed form and return it with your donation to help us continue to offer the athletic programs that our student-athletes desperately need to create a sense of normalcy during these unprecedented times.
