BFAN tries to approve as many fund requests as possible within the constraints of annual fundraising, and that meet the objectives of the BFAN’s charter of supporting programs that enhance students’ experiences at BHS. Because we have finite financial resources, we examine each request carefully and objectively to ensure the money we grant is used in the best possible way and/or to benefit the most possible students. In some cases, BFAN may refer your request to the BHS Success Fund board for consideration, especially requests for facilities improvement involving major sports equipment or building enhancements.
As you make the decision to apply for funding from BFAN, please keep in mind the following guidelines that are weighed in making a funding decision:
Fund Request Process
If you are an OSAA-recognized / school-sponsored team, complete this form. It will be automatically forwarded to the BHS Athletic Director and the Principal who will evaluate whether there are other possible sources of funds from the high school budget and/or school district budget.
If you are a club athletic team (non-BHS sponsored), or another organization, complete this form (no AD or Principal signatures required).
The BFAN Executive Board will review each request following the above guidelines. The request will then be presented for a vote at the next BFAN meeting.
A representative from your group must be present at the BFAN meeting. We will notify you of the date your fund request will be considered.
Receipts must be provided for reimbursement. Internet documentation, purchase orders or other documentation is required to receive funding.
