WHY SUPPORT US?
The following are some of the actual budgeted yearly expenses of our band program. This is what your sponsorship dollars go toward!
1. Instruction - $67,425.00 The most fundamental thing we do is teach our children. Help us bring in outside instructors to provide our students with the best educational experience possible.
2. Equipment - $33,250.00 Band equipment is extremely expensive to purchase and maintain. Help us by purchasing an instrument!
3. Transportation - $33,000.00 School buses, semi trucks and drivers aren't free. In fact, this is one of our biggest expenses! Help us get to where we are going!
4. Uniforms - $23,050.00 The band is one of the largest and most visible groups in the school. Help us replace, repair and clean our uniforms.
5. Meals - $14,205.00 We feed the entire band approximately 25 times per year. That isn't cheap. Help us by providing meals!
6. Administrative - $7,940.00 This is a big expense that is commonly looked past. Help us afford insurance, banking, marketing, copies, scholarships, etc.
7. Design - $5,100.00 While most of our design is done for free, items such as music, flags, costumes, etc. are still a significant expense.
8. Registrations - $2,205.00 It does cost a significant amount of money just to participate in events.
