Burton High School Band Fundraiser

$730 of $6,500 goal

Raised by 14 people in 35 months
In 2011, Phillip and Sala Burton High School started a band program with big dreams of providing the best music education program in the city.  In three short years, our program grew from 80 students to 156 making us the largest public high school band in the city of San Francisco. We now also offer beginning band, jazz band, rock band, marching band, symphonic band, and percussion ensemble as a part of our comprehensive music program.  The band has also received excellent and superior ratings at various music festivals and competitions throughout Northern California.  *Please note that Burton has the ONLY marching band program in San Francisco!

To learn more about the great program at Burton High School, CLICK HERE  to check out our website! 


Funding a large comprehensive program is expensive and can place a burden on the 74% of Burton students who are living near federal poverty levels. The Burton HS band creates extraordinary musical experiences that inspire community and excellence and gives outstanding musical education to many youth who might not otherwise have that opportunity.  

“The band is where I can escape into my music and truly express myself.”  - trumpet player, junior

“There is no better feeling than performing music with your friends knowing everyone is important and did their best.”  - drum major, junior

We need your help to raise $6,500 to cover expenses this year for buses to our spring festival, a new percussion rack on wheels for our instruments, shoes for our uniforms, and music stands.  

We are looking for sponsors in our community like you.  There are several ways you can help support us:

You can give here on GoFundMe and every amount counts toward the success of the Band program.
We have some immediate needs and so your quick and generous contribution will help us tremendously!

Business owners: If you own a business, you can choose a day where you could donate a percentage of your proceeds for that day.  We will encourage the Burton community to visit your business on that day to boost sales! If you have any other ideas, let us know! 

When we all work together, we can accomplish great things! 

The items or services you donate will be tax deductible (Tax ID# 946000416) and all donors/sponsors will be mentioned by name at our performances, in our concert programs, and our website.  


Sincerely,

Band Boosters of Burton High School

We are sending a big thank you to our early supporters. We can do this. Lets get the word out to help our Burton H.S. Band Fundraiser! All amounts are welcome! You can give $5, $10, $25, $50, $100, $500 or MORE!

On a personal note, some of my best memories in High School were from the days I played in Band! The camaraderie we experienced because of the relationships formed, developed in us a sense of pride that I still have (years later) when I get to see and hear my former High School Band. I want to thank you in advance for your gift that will help our sons and daughters experience great opportunities!
