Fundraising is a very important part of TJ Band Boosters. Fees collected through FCPS are restricted to limited uses. The funds we raise support all of our band and color guard students to continue to enjoy excellent musical and performance experiences. Please support our students through your generous support of our fundraisers.

In May 2020, the fundraising coordinators met virtually to discuss fundraising for the 2020-2021 school year. The coordinators discussed ways to adapt our fundraising activities from in-person to hybrid and fully virtual models. The group planned the schedule of fundraisers to avoid as much overlap as possible. The coordinators intentionally planned a variety of ways to support TJ Bands, selecting fundraisers to appeal to a wide range of interests and budget considerations. Even though we will not have the same in-person experiences this school year, TJ Band Boosters’ funding needs remain current.

We thank the families and friends of TJ Bands who support our program. Despite the loss of one of our big fundraisers during 2019-2020, TJ Band Boosters was able to reach its fundraising goals. Our fans enthusiastically supported our smaller fundraisers and donated generously to our organization. We need your participation to ensure the success of activities for the 2020-2021 year.
