DHA Fundraising Opportunities

All money brought in is NOT distributed until properly accounted for by the DHA Treasurer. NO EXCEPTIONS! DHA has one treasury. No individual team accounts are permitted.

Fundraising moneys will be collected and distributed to help the specific athlete that did the fundraising.

  • There will be two DHA wide fundraisers throughout the season.
  • DHA wide fundraisers are not mandatory but are instead be an opportunity for our families to help themselves. The money that an Athlete raises through fundraising will be a direct deduction from their total DHA fees.

Team level Fundraising (Outside of the DHA set packages)

Each team can appoint a fundraising chair for their specific team so if they would like to do some of their own fundraisers they can.

  • Team level fundraising funds will benefit the team and not just the individual athlete.
  • DHA fundraising coordinator will provide any needed assistance in preparing and executing a team level fundraiser.
  • Any team level fundraisers will have to be approved by the DHA board prior the start of the fundraiser.

All funds MUST be sent through the DHA Treasury before they can be dispersed to a team. NO EXCEPTIONS!
