HELP US REACH OUR GOAL TO RAISE $225,000!
PLEASE CONSIDER MAKING A TAX-DEDUCTIBLE DONATION TO HELP COVER COSTS OF THE TRIP
We estimate the trip will cost about $225,000. Our students and families are working very hard
on raising funds for the trip. Since the trip was announced in May 2017, we have hosted and participated
in almost three dozen fundraisers with many more to come. As you can imagine, soliciting for
donations is challenging in our current environment given the pressing needs created by many
natural disasters that have occurred in recent months. However, we remain strong and committed
to our fundraising goal. Are you connected with a corporation that might be willing to be a sponsor?
And would you be willing and able to facilitate a meeting so we can make a presentation?
If you are and can, please contact Emily Bacchini, Band Boosters Board President,
at firstname.lastname@example.org. We would appreciate any assistance in finding corporate
sponsors. To date, our outreach efforts have targeted over 100 local, regional and
national corporations, as well as a multitude of local businesses.
