The Panther Club awards grants to help Boulder High School's CHASSA sports teams purchase much-needed equipment and supplies. These annual grants are funded from the proceeds of the annual Oktoberfest gala and other fundraising efforts.
The 2022 Pantherfest gala was a fantastic success and raised almost $100,000.
Our 2022 grant committee is forming! This committee has the incredibly rewarding job of reviewing and administering Coach and AD grants for the coming year and will meet throughout November and grants will be distributed in December. Please email Elizabeth Riggs if you are interested in serving on the Grant committee this year.
