When you shop at smile.amazon.com, you’ll find the exact same low prices, vast selection and convenient shopping experience as Amazon.com, with the added bonus that Amazon will donate a portion of the purchase price to your favorite charitable organization. You can choose from nearly one million organizations to support.

Which products on SmileAmazon are eligible for charitable donations?

Tens of millions of products on SmileAmazon are eligible for donations. You will see eligible products marked “Eligible for SmileAmazon donation” on their product detail pages. Recurring Subscribe-and-Save purchases and subscription renewals are not currently eligible.

Can I use my existing Amazon.com account on SmileAmazon?

Yes, you use the same account on Amazon.com and SmileAmazon. Your shopping cart, Wish List, wedding or baby registry, and other account settings are also the same.

How do I select a charitable organization to support when shopping on SmileAmazon?

On your first visit to SmileAmazon (smile.amazon.com), all you need to do is search Dougherty Valley High School Athletic Boosters.  You are unable to select a specific team for the donation but it will go into the Athletic Boosters Fund which is utilized by all teams at DVHS.

Tryouts

GET READY FOR TRYOUTS!!!

If you are planning on trying out for an athletic team this year, you will need to register on AthleticClearance.com for the sport(s) you would like to try out for.  After you have completed the online registration, you will need to turn in your signed signature form (printed after you completed registration online) and a current physical.  NOTE: with current COVID-19 conditions a sports physical may be harder to obtain and it is recommended that you plan on scheduling one as soon as you can.  Physicals are good for one calendar year.

The DVHS Athletic Webpage will have updates and information as it becomes available.   Contact the Athletic Director, Nechia Miller for additional questions.

Mission Statement

The Dougherty Valley High School Athletic Boosters strives to support our extra-curricular student-centered learning community and mindset through building traditions in athletic excellence; connecting and collaborating with our educators, families, alumni, and community; promoting the positive image and success of our student athletes; and generating revenue in support of our athletic programs.

 

EVERY DOLLAR WE RAISE GOES BACK INTO DVHS ATHLETICS.

Dear Wildcat Athletic Parents,

Welcome to a new year at Dougherty Valley High School.  This year marks the school’s 10th Anniversary and thanks to active and supportive parents like you, the Wildcats Athletics programs have continued to expand and flourish.

We’re very proud of our student-athletes and want to continue to build on their success, but without your charitable donations – which include Corporate Matching Funds from your employers, sports programs at DVHS could not exist.  Last year, DVHS Athletic Boosters received over $20,000 in Corporate Matching Funds thanks to the parents who took a little time to ask their companies to match their donations. And, 100% of these funds go directly to DVHS Athletics Program.  This year, we know we can earn even more money for our student-athletes and our goal for 2017/2018 is to reach $30,000.  

Corporate Matching Funds are donations a company makes to “match” its employees’ charitable contributions – like your donation to your son or daughter’s sports team. Employee charitable Matching Funds are typically done at a dollar-for-dollar rate. For example, if you were to donate $500 to your child’s sports team, your employer will donate an additional $500 for a total contribution for your child’s team of $1000.

HOW DO YOU REQUEST MATCHING FUNDS FROM YOUR EMPLOYER?

  • Contact your HR Benefits Administrator to fill out the necessary forms to have your donation matched.  Most employers now have corporate match forms online, so no paperwork is needed.  If your donation is eligible for matching, request the match from your employer and then notify us via the Google Docs form on the Athletic Boosters Home Page http://www.dvhigh.net/matching_funds.  
  • Organization Name: Dougherty Valley High School Athletic Boosters Club  { Tax ID number (EIN):  20-8692868 }

If you have questions, please contact me directly.
