SHS Speech and Debate Club Registration
Dear Parents,

Welcome to the 2019-20 season! Before you proceed, please read some important information relating to club registration. The entire exercise should take you ~10-15 minutes.


---------------- 1. OUR CLUB DEPENDS ON YOUR VOLUNTARY 'FAIR SHARE' CONTRIBUTION -----------------

We request a VOLUNTARY CONTRIBUTION for each student just like school clubs and programs like music, sports and others.

-- Your one-time contribution covers payment to coaches, registration fees for CFL tournaments, website, accounting and tax status with the State and IRS, organizing school events and team infrastructure.

-- Your one-time contribution does NOT cover registration fees for local or travel invitationals (referred to as 'invites'), travel expenses for the team, judge buyout, room + boarding and coach or chaperone per diems.

-- Our aim is to balance the budget each year. Consequently, a shortfall will mean a longer or multiple fundraising cycles through the academic year.

-- Our club is a 501(c)(3) tax exempt organization (EIN 77-0108042). Yearly donation statements will be sent by mid-Feb to the address on file. As always, please consult with your tax advisor for specific guidance regarding charitable deductions.


------------------------------------------------ 2. DONATION LEVELS ------------------------------------------------------

1) BASIC $ 800 per student
2) SUPPORTER $ 801 and above

Do let us know whether your Employer matches charitable donation by completing the form below. We will handle the rest.

--------------------------------------------------------- 3. VOLUNTEERING --------------------------------------------------------
In addition to donations the Club also depends on parents to volunteer their time to help with organization, fundraising, judging, chaperoning, etc. Based on past years, we urge each of you to allocate a minimum of 15 hours of your time over the course of the debate season. This will allow us to let our students and coaches focus on Practice and Tournaments. Boosters will track volunteer participation and provide an 'in-kind'' charitable contribution statement.

If your family cannot make the basic voluntary donation, your student will NOT be excluded. Our club does depend on fundraising and donations though we ask everyone to please CONTRIBUTE what you can to support our students.


Thank you,

SARATOGA HIGH SCHOOL SPEECH AND DEBATE SUPPORTERS
