Reasons to donate

LSE's annual band budget is minimal and requires supplemental donations to afford our students with exceptional opportunities. These include but are not limited to:

  • Travel to regional contests

  • Equipment maintenance/replacement

  • Music arranging

  • Marching band drill coordination

  • Color Guard staff and choreography

  • Additional instructional staff throughout the year

Each year, our program incurs a cost of over $150 per pupil and this is also a suggested family donation (though we appreciate any amount). We do not assess student fees and rely heavily on your support to further sustain/enhance the experience that we are able to provide for our students. We thank you for considering a donation to our band program at LSE!

Donation Matches

If your company does matching for donations (go to to see if your company has a matching gift program), this is a great way to increase available funds for our musicians and color guard.
