Fundraising Quota
PCHS Band Association
Fundraising is an important aspect of the Band Program. In order to continue the quality program that is known as the “Pride of Port Chester”, EVERYONE must participate in Fundraising. More information about the fundraising will be discussed at the August parent’s meeting.

The 2016-17 net quota for each band/color guard member is $810; the gross quota is $1,200. The gross quota is the amount you need to raise via the Ad Journal and Fruit Sale fundraisers –for example, we suggest each student sell $600 in Ads (85% profit) plus $600.00 in fruit sales (50% profit) as this equates to a gross quota of $1,200.

The Winter Guard, Winter Percussion and Jazz Band programs are fully funded by the Association, as are other Marching Band expenses not covered by the school district, including staffing. In order for these programs to continue at their current level, students and families must participate in these fundraising programs.

Band’s Business Manager Phil Gasparini attends the PCHS Band Association meetings and is happy to answer any questions you may have. Students who don’t meet quota are not eligible for scholarships as seniors. Please keep in mind meeting quota is very important to the survival of the program. .
