About Us – DCG Booster Club

The DCG Booster Club’s mission is to promote and foster interest in and good will toward all athletic activities affiliated with the Dallas Center-Grimes Community School District.

The DCG Athletic Booster Club has raised hundreds of thousands of dollars since its inception and routinely allocates over $100,000 back to its programs each year supporting 7th through 12th grade athletics programs including uniforms, scholarships, camps, clinics, equipment, and support for participation in state tournaments.

The Booster Club raises funds to support both boys’ and girls’ teams from 7th grade through 12th grade in multiple ways. The primary revenue sources are Memberships and Sponsorships, Concessions, Major Fundraisers and Apparel Sales.

Memberships and Sponsorships
Every August we begin our membership drive, including those in the DCG community and local businesses. Many of these members have supported DCG Athletics for over 10 years!

Concessions
While we raise quite a bit of funds through memberships and sponsorships, most of our funds are raised through running the concession stands at our home athletic events. That’s right, all those hotdogs, brats, popcorn and sodas you enjoy while watching a game help support our athletic programs. Unfortunately, these concession stands don’t run themselves. At every event, parents of our athletes are serving you, and behind the scenes there is a Booster Club member who has either gone shopping, ordered products, come in early to set up the stand or who is overseeing the night’s activities.

Apparel Sales
With the new district rebranding that has taken place, apparel sales have been popular with everyone as fans and students want to get the new gear supporting our sports teams.

Once again this year our athletes have provided us with excitement and fun. With your help, we have been able to support all of our athletic teams, and they have responded with both winning efforts and winning seasons. Trips to state tournaments are becoming a common place for DCG Student Athletes. How exciting it has been for our athletes and parents and what great memories and life lessons they will take with them as they move on after graduation.

Please consider becoming a Booster Club Board member. This year we will have quite a few board members leaving us due to graduation of their kids, and without additional Board members we will have a hard time delivering the level of support we have had over the past years.

Feel free to join us during one of our regular meetings held the 1st Wednesday of every month at 6pm at the DCG High School Room 171 to see how you can help out or give any of the members a call or an email to learn more. For more information: Contact Us
