Our Mission
The Falls Church City BAND BOOSTERS supports the band programs for Grades 4 – 12. The mission of the Band Boosters is four-fold:

  • Fundraising for programming and band trips
  • Volunteer coordination to assist band programming
  • Providing private lessons opportunities for students
  • Management of collected band program funds


Where Do the Funds Go?

Funds from membership donations, grants, and fundraisers are used for the following purposes:

  • to purchase and repair school-owned instruments
  • to purchase and repair band uniforms (high school)
  • buy sheet music and related items
  • offer scholarships for lessons, rental fees, and insurance
  • hire clinicians to provide supplemental instruction
  • provide college scholarships
  • offset costs of the high school band trip in the spring
  • for more information, read our 2013 Annual Report to the School Board
  • CONTRIBUTIONS ARE NOT TAX-DEDUCTIBLE AT THIS TIME
