Note From the President:
 
This is a reminder that we are no longer able to provide personal fundraisers for band students.  Tax Law dictates that non-profit organizations are not supposed to raise funds to benefit one individual  in their organization, but the entire group.  We do not want to loose our tax-exempt/non-profit status.  If you have money from previous fundraisers set aside in our personal fundraising account, we ask that you either use it on band related expenses this year or the beginning of next year, or indicate that you would like to donate the funds to the band booster general fund.  We work really hard as a booster board to raise money every year to keep band fees low, and supplement the band program so that your students receive the maximum benefit and experience possible.  Please help us continue with successful fundraisers such as the holiday fundraiser mentioned above so that we can continue to benefit the band progam with all that it needs to grow and enrich our students’ lives.  If you have any questions regarding the band booster budget, please consider joining one of our future board meetings.  Thank you for sharing your fabulous kids with us!  Band is a great place to call home at school.  Great kids, great directors, excellent program.  We always appreciate your continued support of our fundraisers.

Sincerely,

 
Lennae Bishop
