The MRHS Music Foundation raises funds to support the Director's budget requests each year to cover expenses such as instrument repair and replacement; specialized uniforms such as madrigals costumes, women's ensemble dresses, marching band uniforms, jazz vests, music awards and recognition, music costs, equipment, and other capital expenses, etc.
We also provide opportunities to help students pay for their spring trip. Profits from Cash Card Sales (Giant and Weis) and the Fall Yankee Candle/World's Finest Chocolates Sale go directly into individual student accounts. The student accounts are managed and kept to cover expenses such as the annual Spring Trip, certain ensemble fees (marching band, madrigals, women's ensemble, jazz band), and concert attire purchases. These opportunities are offered to help reduce each family's out-of-pocket expenses, while giving students ownership and responsibility to fund their trip and other expenses.
The monthly Fruit Sales held in the months of September through January benefit both the general Music Foundation budget as well as individual student accounts.
The Music Foundation board and committee volunteers manage and oversee fundraising events. Working the fundraisers is great fun and builds great community, too! "It takes a village" to raise nearly $40,000! Please join us and help ensure that MRHS Music continues its tradition of excellence.
