Support Opportunities

Alonso High School Bands is a large, growing, and high achieving performing arts curriculum where excellence in musicianship, character, and leadership is emphasized.  We provide a top-quality band experience for the benefit of our student musicians, our school, and our local community while keeping our band dues as affordable as possible for parents.  To achieve this and to supplement low school operating budgets, we must engage in a vigorous fundraising program and depend on the generous in-kind and sponsorship support of individuals, funding organizations, and corporations for goods, services, and cash donations.   


Please consider Alonso High School Bands when reviewing your charitable options.  What better investment than music education whose impact on our students will be remembered and demonstrated throughout their lives?  All donations are tax-deductible to our registered not for profit organization/501(c)3.  


Our students and staff thank you in advance for your consideration.
