Supporting TJ Athletics

Turf Fields Are a Campaign Priority
Unlike fragile grass fields, turf allows for play in most weather conditions. Installing turf at TJ will ensure that our football, soccer, lacrosse, and field hockey teams, as well as our award-winning marching band, get more valuable practice time. It will also keep more games at home.

Turf also helps meet the shortage of reliable community field space, which is one reason that the County supports installing two turf fields (when space permits) at the few remaining high schools without them.

FCPS only covers 75% of the cost, which means that the TJ community must raise 25% of the cost of two new turf fields, approximately $400,000.

#1kEach Donors Put Names on Concession Stand

Because a percentage of all Campaign for TJ gifts is automatically allocated to athletic needs, the Campaign has already raised over $250,000 toward athletics.

If donating at the $1,000 level or above, you may direct your donation entirely to athletic needs. Your name will appear alongside other supporters on a plaque to be placed on our new concession stand.

Help Colonial Athletic Boosters turf TJ by choosing #1kEach from the “Donation for” drop-down.
