Green Hope High School Band Patron Campaign
The General Band Budget covers the overhead and administration of all band activities – concert, symphonic, marching and winter programs – insurance, office supplies, accounting, guest clinicians, financial aid and instrument repairs run at an annual cost of about $45,000. The Marching Band, Winter Guard and Indoor Percussion Fair Shares only covers the day to day and week to week expenses of the different programs for just that year such as the cost of summer band camp, the salaries of coaches and instructors and cost of food and transportation to and from competitions.
Neither budget covers long term or capital expenses such as instrument purchases and longer term capital needs like Marching Band uniforms, trailer repairs/updates, etc..
The band boosters determined that we need to set aside funds for long term expenses and with around 180 members in the band, the Band Booster’s analysis shows we need to raise at least $50,000 per year. One of the ways we do this is with the Patron Campaign.
Patron Campaign – We are asking any Band supporters, parents, family members, and friends to be a Green Hope HS Band Patron by making a tax deductible contribution.
There are three levels of support:
- Patron – $100 – $299
- Patron of Music – $300 – $499
- Patron of the Arts – $500 or more
Patron’s names will be displayed on a Supporters banner on the fence outside the band room during Home Football game nights, on the website and in programs printed and distributed at each of the 3 band concerts throughout the year.
