SBOSurvey: Fundraising

All music educators want the best for their program and their students, but very few are lucky enough to easily achieve all their goals without augmenting the “official” school budget.

To incorporate more ambitious elements, such as travel, into an overall curriculum – as well as addressing the more fundamental needs of music education (instruments, uniforms, equipment) – most directors turn to fundraising efforts to bring more revenue to the program.

SBO recently asked our readers to provide some feedback on what fundraising strategies have proven to be most successful and what role, in general, fundraising plays in supporting the efforts of the student musicians in their schools.
