Crew Team Fundraising
JEB Stuart Crew is a competitive varsity sport which receives no funding from either the JEB Stuart High School or Fairfax County. Crew is an expensive sport that requires a large operating budget to pay for coaches salaries, bus rentals for daily practices, insurance, boat storage, and equipment costs and upgrades. The rowers’ dues cover a portion of the costs necessary for the team operations. The rest of the funds needed to run the program must be raised by the booster club in a series of fundraising events or year-round programs. Here are some fundraisers that our rowers and their families participate in:
BJs Membership Renewal
Please support the JEB Stuart Crew team by joining or renewing your BJs membership through the Crew Boosters. BJs will donate $5 of your fee to the JEB Stuart Crew Boosters to help support the rowing program! In addition to helping the team, you receive a new membership or extend your current membership for 15 months for $40 ($10 less than the normal 12 month fee).
It doesn’t matter when you last renewed, BJs will add 15 months to your current expiration date and Stuart Crew will benefit. Use this application (BJ Application) and mail with payment to Christine Hegemann, Crew Booster Secretary (mailing instructions are included on the application). Forms and payment can also be deposited in the Crew Booster mailbox in the Stuart High School front office. New membership activation will take 3-4 weeks. Memberships can be purchased by anyone and are good at any BJs Wholesaler in the U.S. Offer ends Dec. 1, 2012. Don’t delay and pass the word!!
Buy gift cards for use with a wide variety of merchants. You buy the gift cards at face value through the crew team and a portion of the sale is given to the team.
Link your cards – Link your Harris Teeter VIC Card and Safeway cards to the JEB Stuart Crew team at the beginning of each school year, so that a portion of your purchases are donated back to the team. Our Harris Teeter number is #5829 and our Safeway eScrip Group number is #500029568.
The rowing team hosts a car wash at least 6 times during the year. Once each month from June through October, and we often add a couple during April and May. Team members are notified of upcoming car washes via website and email and are expected to participate.
Our biggest single fundraiser of the year! Throughout October, team members are expected to sell wreathes, poinsettias, and Stuart Crew coffee to friends, family and neighbors. All sales are delivered to the purchasers door on the first Saturday in December.
