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.
