The Elk Grove Unified School District (EGUSD) has long been known for its excellent athletic programs. We are proud of this reputation and recognize that athletics support our students’ physical, social, and academic development. We want to thank all of those who contributed to the Voluntary Athletic Contribution program during the last four years and helped us survive the financial crisis in the State of California and the reduction of funding for public education.
The purpose of the VAC plan is to support our athletic programs and we encourage you to help to ensure its success.
The goal is to raise $150,000 in donations through the VAC plan. The recommended donation amount remains the same as in past years, $150/student-athlete.
It is not the intent of the VAC to create a financial hardship and contributions are not mandatory, but to accomplish the goal, every student-athlete is encouraged to contribute. While your child will not be adversely affected in terms of her/his participation in the district’s athletic programs should your family choose not to make a financial contribution, neither will a VAC contribution ensure your student’s inclusion on a team or guarantee playing time. Families who wish to contribute more or less than the suggested amount or who choose not to make a contribution may indicate so on the VAC form. All VAC contributions are tax-deductible.
If you are interested in making an additional tax-deductible donation to athletics, please contact the EGUSD Fiscal Services Department at (916) 686–7797, extension 7663.
We are grateful for your continued support of EGUSD athletics. The district’s goal is to continue to offer a quality athletic program at each of its comprehensive high school sites. Your voluntary contribution will provide our students with the opportunity to enhance their personal growth and have a positive high school experience through participation in athletics.
