A booster club is an organization that is formed to contribute money to an associated club, sports team, or organization. Booster clubs are popular in American schools at the high school and university level. The clubs are generally run and organized by the parents of the students in the supported organization in high schools, and by athletic supporters and fans at colleges.
We have fund raising committes, special book stalls, school fairs, tuckshops, etc and these will probably be run by a subcommittee - the subcommitee is our legal equivalent. The school is the charity.
