2019-2020 Family Contribution


Your tax deductible, charitable contribution to the JMHS Band Parents Organization is crucial to the continued success of the Band and Guard Program at James Madison High School.  It costs approximately $1,500.00 per student to participate in band and guard, and the Band Parents Organization needs to raise an average of $500 per student in charitable contributions to meet ongoing budgetary expenses.

The Band Parents Organization pays for Marching Competition travel, including bus transportation and hotel costs for overnight stays during the marching season; truck and equipment rentals; props; marching band and guard instructors; sectionals teachers; food, water, and snacks; band camp lunches; instrument repairs and purchase; Winter Guard travel, food and lodging; guard equipment and uniforms; and sheet music.  The program cannot function without your financial contribution!

Payment can be made in one or multiple payments, or equal installments over time.

This year we are giving away a Madison Band Parent ball cap to the first 50 families who pay or pledge $500 or more by June 30, 2019.  To track payments/pledges, you must fill out and return the 2019-2020 pledge form with your payment or pledge in order to receive a ball cap, even if you are paying the full amount.    

There are several ways to get your payment/pledge in before June 30:

  • Sylvia Martin Estes will be in the hallway outside the band room on Wednesday, May 8 and May 15, 6:15-7:15 pm (checks/credit/debit cards accepted; also buy your 2018 State Champs window decal)
