The Greendale High School Marching Band is a 220+ member all-inclusive competitive marching band program. Any student regardless of ability, experience, or financial means is able to participate in our program. Students gain an appreciation for the arts while learning the important qualities of dedication, teamwork, time management, and discipline - all while having a great deal of fun and creating lifelong friendships along the way. The focus of the program is never about trophies or awards - the focus is on the journey and the rewarding experiences which result from participation in our marching band program.
With a band our size, everything we do is multiplied exponentially. For example, just traveling to one competition requires seven buses. To help increase revenue, we are completely revamping our fundraising efforts. Gone are the days of selling overpriced products that people don't really want, or selling raffle tickets with a slim-to-zero chance of winning. People have often said they would love to donate to the band, but don't have the financial means to give one check. But with small monthly recurring donations, the marching band gets the ongoing support necessary to fund a 220+ member organization, and the donors are able to spread out payments without even thinking about it. PLUS, every donation is recognized with an automated e-mail receipt, indicating that the FULL amount of the donation is 100% tax deductible!
Your donation will help in the following ways:
-Ensuring all students can continue to participate no matter their background
-Ensuring students are all playing on working instruments, helping with repairs and maintenance that we currently forego due to budgetary constraints
-Ensuring colorguard continues to receive show-appropriate uniforms and flags
-Ensuring our band dads can continue to build AMAZING props for every show, providing them the materials and building space that they require
-Purchasing much-needed storage options for the equipment that doesn't currently fit in the band room
-Building our uniform replacement account so we can continue to look our best years down the road
-Ensuring we can meet transportation costs that rise each and every year and prevent us from eliminating competitions due to travel costs
-Providing money to bring in student leadership experts, clinicians, and other professionals to enhance the band student experience
-Ensuring we can continue to obtain the expensive rights to arrange quality marching band music
-Allow us to eliminate individual sale fundraisers and better focus our band student/staff/family time and energy
