What is Project Grad?
Project Grad is a year-long fundraising event for the purpose of raising money to allow seniors the opportunity to safely celebrate the completion of their high school career. Project Grad also covers all of the extra graduation activities, like the senior breakfast, baccalaureate, as well as transportation to and from the post-graduation party - an alcohol and drug-free party exclusively for graduating seniors. The event will be held on Graduation Night (May 16, 2019) from 10PM to 1AM. This is a lock-in event with fun, games, food, and prizes. Graduates will spend a fun night together on the final evening of their high school careers under the safe supervision of parent chaperones. This is always a huge success, with over 90% of the senior class attending.
When do we start?
Class of 2019 senior parents have just started meeting to plan Project Graduation. We will need many more volunteers! The event requires significant planning and fundraising, which is done at events throughout the year. We will host our annual car show on October 6, 2018. The car show is a major effort that funds much of the cost of Project Grad. We will also have many other fundraising events that will be announced.
Where does the money come from?
Project Graduation is an independent organization. We do not receive any funding from the school budget. Project Grad is held each year thanks to the generosity of parents, businesses, local community, and the Car Show community. If you have previously supported us with donations (food, prizes, props, etc.) we thank you very much. If you would prefer to support the event with a financial donation, please send your check to

How can I help?
We need volunteers! To be added to the email list, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please attend some or all of our planning meetings. Parent sponsorships – Click her to download Parent Sponsorship Forms or Business sponsorships for the Project Grad Car Show of $25, $50, $100, $250 or more! We need people to contact local businesses, employers, etc. and solicit sponsorships. Maybe you don’t like to beg for money? That’s OK – we need parents to call other parents, we need many volunteers for the Car Show to help with parking, food, registration, judging, etc. Finally we’ll need people to help with end of year activities.
There is truly a way for anyone who wants to see this happen to help make it happen.
Thank you in advance for your continued help and support of this celebration event! For many years, parent volunteers and community members have produced Project Grad. We are grateful that the Basehor & Linwood communities have traditionally endorsed our efforts to provide a safe and fun-filled environment where our seniors can celebrate their graduation. The graduation party is a gift to our seniors from YOU, their parents!
It will take everyone's participation and ideas to make Project Grad 2019 a success.
