Marching Season Fundraising Goal

We need to raise $11,000 each month over the course of marching band season… How are we doing on our goal?

  • August Budget: $11,000 55%
  • September Budget: $16,000 (need to make up for last month’s shortfall) 30%
  • October Budget: $22,000 (includes shortfalls from previous two months) 30%
  • November Budget: $11,000 0%

Here’s How You Can Help Keep the Music Alive


Find out how to contribute financially to the band. We have an ongoing need and a large monthly budget. Without the financial help of our band families, our programs would not be possible.

We could use your help volunteering, too. From uniform fittings and football games to bus chaperones, concessions help, pit crews, awards night, recycling, and much, much, more, our help wanted list is long and varied.

Fundraising is an amazing way to support the band financially, and it doesn’t necessarily mean opening up your own wallet. We have a variety of fundraisers that can make a big difference — but participation is essential.

Recruit Sponsors

Who can you approach in your network about sponsoring the band? Maybe it’s an employer or perhaps a local business. The business community wants to support local students, but WE have to seek THEM.
