“Music is a higher revelation than all wisdom and philosophy. Music is the electrical soil in which the spirit lives, thinks and invents.” _Ludwig van Beethoven

How do we fundraise during a pandemic?...

Facebook fundraisers

Over the past couple of years, several of our Band Booster parents have raised significant funds for McKinley CLA Bands by holding Facebook Fundraisers on their birthdays. Feel free to ask a board member if you would like more information about how to do this.

We also now have a donate button on our Facebook page! At some point during the school year, you might consider sharing one of our FB posts and inviting your friends to make a donation to our band program.


Click on the Fundraising tab at the top of the page and check out how you can support our band programs by using AmazonSmile or Schnucks EScript.
