The Riverside High School Athletic Booster Club is committed to providing student-athletes at Riverside High School the very best facilities, equipment, protection and opportunities. We raise funds for uniforms, training equipment and team support.
The Riverside HS Athletic Booster Club is a nonprofit organization whose sole purpose is to provide financial support for the Riverside High Athletics. 100% of money raised by the booster club helps to pay for uniforms, practice and game equipment, and capital projects.
The RHS Athletic Booster Club is comprised of RHS parents, teachers, students, and community supporters who together raise money each year to support 30 RHS Varsity & Junior Varsity teams and athletes representing 19 sports. We have 19 sports to support, but we are all Riverside Pirates.
Please join us at our next Booster Club meeting. We meet at Riverside the first Monday of each month at 7 PM on Zoom - contact AD Robert Duncan or any coach for the Zoom link. Annual dues have been set to zero for the 2020-21 school year. We need your help with communications, fundraising, spirit wear sales, pictures, website content, and many other areas.
Help us keep our 440 students competing on 19 teams at Riverside by making a gift of $203 during this special fundraiser. Your gift of $203 provides the equivalent of the expense for one student to participate in one season this year.
Did you know that Durham Public Schools only provides 14% ($15,000) of the funding needed to run our Athletics program at Riverside? The other 86% of the funding comes from ticket sales, sponsorships, and fundraisers. That means the Athletics Department and the Booster Club need to produce over $89,000 in revenue this year to support our students.
100% of donations through this effort will go directly to the Booster Club to help our kids – in contrast to a small percentage we make off any fundraising sales (candy, coupon books, etc). If we are successful with this fundraiser, the Booster Club won’t be asking you to sell anything later this year!
