Band booster clubs are booster clubs that are created in schools to serve the purpose of collecting the necessary funds that will keep the band program running. Bands, however, come in all shapes and sizes from marching bands to PEP bands, concert bands to flag corps bands. The list goes on and on! Therefore, the needs of each band being supported will vary. A music booster club of this nature will need to be able to raise money in order to supply general necessities such as band uniforms, banners, trip funds, contest entrance fees, and so much more.
Booster clubs are extremely popular organizations usually based in American schools at the middle school, high school, and university level. Generally, booster clubs are run and organized by students and their parents, though at a University level, many fans and alumni do their part to help support booster clubs. The primary focus of booster clubs is not socializing, but to develop support for student athletic programs and to raise funds in order to counteract the budget cuts taking place at many public schools and institutions.
The cost of running any kind of extracurricular program, of course, varies from school to school. However, some necessities such as equipment, uniforms, and traveling money are universal and, unfortunately, quite expensive.
