Anyone interested in joining the Boosters should contact anyone on the members list. There are no dues. Two regularly scheduled meetings are held. One meeting is in August and a dinner meeting in March. Our major fundraiser is serving food in the kitchen and concession stand during eight Weeping Water Public School tournaments. In February, 2018 the Boosters also worked in the kitchen and concession stand for the district wrestling tournament. The Boosters host a pancake supper prior to Honors Night. Donations received fund a scholarship given to a graduating senior at the following year’s Honor Night.

The Weeping Water Community Boosters are part of the Midlands Community Foundation. As such the Boosters are a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization. Each December thru early January of the following year any donations made to the Midlands Community Foundation in the name Weeping Water Community Booster Fund is matched by Midlands Community Foundation. The match rate varies each year but has yielded over $5800 to the Boosters in the first four years of being part of the Midlands Community Foundation. The Boosters also are eligible to apply for grants to assist with our donating to programs in the community or school. We received $3000 in a grant in 2015. The funds were given to the school for the community exercise facility. (More information about donating to the Booster Fund will be available when dates for the matching period are announced by the Midlands Community Foundation.)
