We are excited to move forward with our mission to raise money for capital improvements to the athletic department at Arvada West High School by partnering with the City of Arvada to apply for a Great Outdoors Colorado grant! The grant is worth $350,000 and it will be used to build a brand new all-weather community track replacing the current rock, gravel and cinder track located on the east side of AWHS. Check back soon for a visual map of our plan to update the entire area.
In order to apply for the grant, we need to show our ability to raise 30% of that amount in the next 18 months to add to the project. That is $105,000!
How are we going to do this?? We have several events planned for the upcoming year including a golf tournament and our yearly speaker/auction event. Please check out our events page for more information about that.
We are continuing with our banner sponsorships, which you can see on our front page. We will be starting a “Change for Change” program which the students will be able to help raise money. And finally, we welcome donations and grant opportunities from our neighbors.
If you are ready to help get us started, please donate today!! I have made a pledge as President of the Friends of the Wildcats Foundation to match $1 for every donation we receive. So if we have 1,000 people or businesses donate, I will personally pledge $1,000.
Thank you always for your incredible support to make Arvada West High School the strongest high school in the state of Colorado!
