Uniform Fundraising Campaign

The award winning AHS marching band program is currently 130 strong and projected to grow in the coming years. This year we had an acute need to replace worn out uniforms, which were costly and the band association had to reach into funds set aside for instruments, repairs, and competition costs.  We are committed to making it affordable for all band students to participate. Please help us raise $12,000 to cover the cost of our new uniforms.  Sponsorship is easy and we appreciate ANY amount of  support.  On behalf of the Asheville High School Marching Band,  Thank You for your generous donations. We wear our new uniforms proudly as we represent the Asheville community at home and afar. 

We are seeking Community Sponsors to help us raise funding to purchase these new uniforms. Please consider supporting the band program at one of the following levels:

FAQs

Why do we need to fundraise? Didn’t we already pay a $300 band fee?
Yes, most families have paid the $300 annual fee. However, it costs approximately twice that to run the band for one year, and it’s a goal of the AHS Band Association to ensure financial hardship does not prevent any student participating.

To raise the other half of our annual expenses, we organize a number of fundraisers.
