Recent Grants

E Club, Edgemont Jr./Sr. High School’s Athletic Booster Club, was founded in the 1950’s by parent volunteers. For more than 60 years, E Club has stepped up with financial grants when the athletic department’s budget has come up a bit short. We are proud of our student-athletes and grateful to be able to support them with your help.

Membership dues and financial contributions are E Club’s primary sources of revenue.  We hope all Edgemont residents will become members of E Club and support Edgemont Athletics.  Every dollar the E Club receives is tax-deductible (E Club is a registered 501 (3c) charity) and all board members are volunteers, so every dollar goes directly to supporting our student-athletes.
