Team Wayland (Fund Raising)

Team Wayland

Any group fundraising for Wayland High School Teams must follow Wayland School Committee Guidelines for Support Organizations.


Understanding that a school budget can not fund unique experiences for all teams, team fundraisers that promote the athletic experience for our student-athletes can occur if the following rules are followed.

Coaches and a Team Financial Representative (normally a captain’s parent) should meet to review the team budgets.  We expect the budget to reflect modest dollar amounts to minimize the amount of fundraising that needs to occur


A fundraising budget should be turned into the Athletic Department with Fundraising Request Form F2 filled out for any fundraising activities, before any fundraising begins.


The Athletic Director and Principal will approve or decline the fundraising request based on the fundraising activity and/or what the funds will be used for.


Once fundraising activities are approved the Fiscal Sponsor will be informed of the activity and timeline.


Fundraising cannot be used to fund out of season sport-specific activities (summer leagues).


Coaching positions cannot be funded from fundraising money.


Avoid fundraising activities in which a company takes a large percentage of the profits.


Avoid conflicting fundraising activities.


We encourage fundraising activities where Wayland High School teams work together to provide goods or services.  Appeal for donations will be considered for larger capital fundraisers.

Checks should be made payable to “Team Wayland” with the sport in the memo. 

The Fiscal Sponsor will present a complete list of fundraising income to the School Committee every year.


Examples of approved expenses are:

-Team bonding activities

-Modest team apparel

-Team video

-Upgrading team busses for trips over an hour and a half

-Additional unfunded equipment

-End of season celebrations

-Facility rentals

-Team meals/snacks

-Championship, player, coach recognition

-Addition playdays/tournaments


Unapproved purchases will not be reimbursed.
