NHS and Mr. Dresback are very supportive of our
program. However, school funding is very limited
and the vast majority of the budget for the band is
provided by the booster families and community
support.
We receive our primary funding from:
• Membership fees
• Fundraising: 5k, First Coast Marching, etc
• Community Sponsors
• United Way Contributions
• Other Corporate Donations
