Financial Commitment

The Parkview Band Boosters provides the main funding source for the PHS Band. An incredible amount of money is needed to operate a large successful program. The expected annual financial contribution is as follows:

  • Concert Only (people who are not in marching band) $100
  • Marching Band Members
    • Winds and Percussion: $650
    • Color Guard: $700

Each family is expected to pay this amount each year. The Band Boosters offer many fundraising opportunities throughout the year to help students and parents meet this obligation. If your family is experiencing a temporary financial hardship, please contact a director at your convenience so we can craft an individualized plan that will allow you to make payments that fit your budget.
