Overview

Self-reported by organization

The Smyrna High School Band Boosters have provided the 100+ band students at Smyrna High School the funding necessary to support programs that enable our students to improve their musicianship by attending marching contests, participating in clinics and special events, receiving supplemental professional instruction, supplying musical instruments for approximately 40% of our students, and promoting school and community-related opportunities for performance. With booster support, the band is able to perform at community events such as parades, football games, welcome-home ceremonies for returning troops, jazz festivals, and other events as requested by community members. We continue to have success with several of our larger fundraisers (fruit sales and football program sales), and host All-County band try-outs for Rutherford County. We were also able to purchase new uniforms for the entire band.

Program 1

Fundraising arm for the Smyrna High School Band Department

The Smyrna High School Band Boosters raises the funds necessary to support activities of the music department, not met by the school board. Our yearly budget is derived from scrutinizing new and recurrent needs, and developing a fundraising plan that will generate the income to meet those needs. Additionally, special programs and costs for items such as uniform replacement and instrumentation have to be met through fundraising efforts outside of the yearly operating budget. Such needs may be met through community sponsors, added fundraisers, or grant applications.

Funding Needs

We are need of new instruments.  Our organization supplies instruments for approximately 40% of our music students.  Our wish, at this moment, is to raise $100,000 to purchase new instruments that will replace the ones that can no longer be repaired. As our band grows in size, we will be needing to purchase additional uniforms so that all of our students may participate in our activities.
