Welcome to the Green Level Gator Club! We look forward to an incredible inaugural year! We aim to provide ALL Green Level Athletic teams with the resources necessary to build a collegiate environment for all our student athletes. As a new school, our GL students will receive special opportunities, but we will also face unique obstacles. I have seen the Green Level community’s excitement throughout our neighborhoods and I have no doubt that together we will defeat these challenges!. “This is our House!”
Since we elected our board in April 2019, the Green Level Gator Club has been hard at work to establish ourselves as an organization. We incorporated, we were awarded 501 (c)(3) tax exempt status by the IRS, and we made application for a charitable solicitation license with the NC Secretary of State. Our membership campaign to the Gator Club is underway, which includes passes to all our Green Level home games. These memberships are available at https://gofan.co/app/school/NC72639 and a discount is being offered if you sign up before August 8. We have launched our website www.GLGatorClub.org, where we will keep you up-to-date on all Gator Club programs, exciting news and events. We have set up our corporate sponsorship packages, with the goal of partnering with neighboring businesses of all sizes in our community. You can find more information here www.glgatorclub.org/sponsorship.html.
Now our work will focus on gaining the community’s support. Our estimated budget for 2019/2020 is $200,000 which is the largest of any support organization operating within GLHS. Of this amount, Wake County Public School System will contribute $897! The GL Gator Club, through the financial support of our community is tasked with closing this large gap.
Our three primary funding sources are Membership/Gator Passes, Corporate Sponsorships and Team Budget Contributions. We are seeking 100% membership from all of our athlete’s families. We are actively marketing our corporate sponsorship packages to local business owners. Soon we will be working with our coaches to develop team budgets for the season.
We will be holding several special events throughout the 2019/2020 school year to further engage and drive excitement within the entire GL Gator community. The first event is “Gator Night” which will be held on campus the evening of August 8th. You can get involved and stay up-to-date on our events page here. www.glgatorclub.org/events
We look forward to engaging with the entire Green Level Gator community and providing the resources for ALL Gator athletes to thrive athletically and academically. We aim to build the best high school athletics department in North Carolina, creating an environment of support and excitement throughout the GLHS campus.
