The Boulder Valley School District provides funds for the band director’s salary only. The rest of the budget for band programs including salaries for guard, percussion and visual instructors, competition fees, travel, uniform maintenance, instrument repair, equipment, etc., comes from fundraising.

Like other extracurricular activities including other arts programs and sports, there is a cost to participate but much of the cost of these programs is paid for by BBPA fundraising. Participation in and the success of band programs depends on participation in fundraising activities and a cash obligation.

Both students and parents are expected to participate in BBPA and/or fundraising activities throughout the year.
