Crowdfunding Campaign- August 9, 2018

Please direct people to and have them donate to the band boosters to help fund this year’s band.


Please assist your child in coming up with a physical list of names and phone numbers for them to call Thursday during the last part of our rehearsal. We will have the students broken up into teams and the band hall will turn into a call center as they reach out to the people on their list asking them for donations. The blitz will take 59 minutes and our goal is to bring in $25,000!

Effortless Giving opportunities are fundraising opportunities that are not events, but are a way for you to support the McNeil Band & Guard with your everyday purchases. You can support the band with just the things you already do, such as eat, shop, bank or search.

Effortless Giving is easy to do, easy to set up, and hardly requires any effort on your part to continue supporting the band. Please show your support by clicking through our website to use these business services.

You can support the McNeil Band & Guard when you shop at Amazon. Simply click the logo above & bookmark it as your Amazon shopping link and the band will receive a small percentage of your purchases as a donation!

Our corporate sponsorships allow companies to show their support for the band either financially or through provision of goods and services.   We have preset levels based on size of donation, or you can get creative with our Band Booster organization and sponsor something specific, like providing student Marching equipment for a given year.
