Booster Club is the fundraising arm of Canyon Charter School, a 501 (c) 3 non-profit organization.
The most frequent question we're asked is, "What does Booster Club fundraising pay for at Canyon?" Rather than list the endless programs, educators, instruction and enrichment that goes into a year of Booster Club expenditures, watch it now.

All parents and guardians are automatically voting members, and the Booster Club elects board members and approves the next year's annual budget at the May meeting. The Booster Club meets monthly following assemblies.
Canyon Booster is a registered 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, run by Canyon parents on a volunteer basis, that drives Canyon’s fundraising and community events.
Throughout the school year, we aim to raise close to $900,000 dollars ($2,300 per student) in order to offset steep state budget cuts and to keep our academics, enrichment programs, facilities and support services on par with the best elementary schools in the country.
There is a warm and inclusive Canyon community of friends and families here to support you and your child and we hope you and yours will get involved with our team of volunteers who work tirelessly year-round to bring our community together in support of our Canyon students.
