Booster Groups

  • Lindbergh Schools booster groups provide valuable services to students and families within the school community. The designation of a district-recognized booster group helps your organization cultivate support and trust within the school community, while establishing your organization's reputation regarding nonprofit status, bylaws, insurance and financial responsibilities. In most cases, district-recognized booster groups do not pay facility use fees.

    Becoming a district-recognized booster group requires the following steps:

    • Have 501(c)3 nonprofit status and submit a copy of their most recently filed IRS Form 990-N (e-postcard), 990-EZ or 990, along with the District-Recognized Booster Group Application. This includes incorporation of the organization through the Missouri Secretary of State's office and creation of bylaws for the organization regarding purpose and operations

    • Provide a certificate of insurance with no less than $2 million, plus Lindbergh Schools to be named as additional insured*

    • Complete annually the Maintaining Status as a District-Recognized Booster Group Application and return to: Lindbergh Schools, Business and Finance, 9350 Sappington Rd., St. Louis, MO 63126 or via email to facilityusage@lindberghschools.ws

    • Any group whose ultimate profit and income returns to Lindbergh Schools

    • Group activity provides a direct benefit to Lindbergh students and whose activity can be hosted at no additional expense to the district

    • Follow all requirements included in Policy KG and Administrative Procedure KG-AP(1)

    • Abide by the facility use fees and group classification designations, as approved annually
