The BBABC fundraisers provide support for the athletes and Bedford High School sport teams to fund needs not met by the school’s athletic budget. Based on the funds raised by each team, coaching staff can submit funding requests for equipment, etc., to the BBABC as soon as it has been approved by the BHS Athletic Director. To see a listing of what we have funded through the years, click here.
Along with membership support, we raise funds by providing team fundraisers each season. Examples of team fundraising are sales of raffle calendars, coupon books, and discount coupon cards. Since a large percentage of team sales goes directly back to them to use at their discretion, a team that is motivated to sell can raise significant money to offset team extras such as sportswear, coach clinics, team trips, team banquets or equipment on their “wish list”.
While the majority of the proceeds go directly back to the teams’ individual accounts, after the cost of the fundraiser, we set aside a small percentage (10%) to fund the pre-awards banquet that is held before each season’s Athletic Awards Night. We are happy to be able to fill this request of the Athletic Office and partner with them to provide this event for the coaches, athletes and their parents each season.
