Why Fundraisers are necessary

High School Athletics offer plenty of benefits but are expensive to operate.  

MCPS pays the coaching stipends and funds a basic program.

Schools and community decide if they want to spend more.

At RM, the annual stipend from MCPS totals around $60,000.

RM Athletics spends around $200,000 a year to support the programs at their current level.

This leaves a $140,000 funding gap.  The close the gap, the school and the booster club work to

increase ticket sales and do various fundraisers.
