The majority of the cost to fund the LHS Band Program is covered through fundraising to keep student fees as low as possible. The required funding per student in the LHS Band Program is roughly $1,500 per year and only about one-third of that is covered by student fees. Our fundraising efforts provides funding for the Crimson Regiment Marching Band and Color Guard, the Winter Guard, the Concert Bands (including Wind Symphony, Symphonic Band and Concert Band) and Jazz Ensembles.
There are many major fund-raisers sponsored by the fundraising directors and band boosters organization every year. The funds raised from these activities are vital to the operation of the total LHS band program. They pay for staff and instructors, new instruments and equipment, maintenance and repairs, music and licenses, transportation to and food at concerts and competitions, and scholarships to ensure that any student can participate in band regardless of their financial situation. Without these fund-raisers the quality of equipment, the number of staff members and overall quality of education would suffer.
We have many fundraising opportunities such as using King Sooper’s and Scrip Gift Cards, Santa Breakfast, Flamingo Flocking, and individual and corporate sponsorship. If you would like to help us raise funds for the students of Loveland High School, please consider joining our Band Booster Fundraising Committee.
