Fundraisers

The opportunities that are presented to our students through the Leadership Conservatory for the Arts are dependent upon raising significant funds and resources beyond what is provided by the School District.  For example, expenses for the Marching Band program alone are over $200,000 per year. These funds must be raised through student trip fees and fundraising.  Individual student trip fees can be substantially reduced through parental and student involvement in fundraising activities.

Our fundraising efforts are led by parents and supporters through our booster organization, Tarpon Springs Band Boosters, Inc.

Listed below are a variety of opportunities for parents and students to participate in to help raise necessary funds for the operation of the Conservatory.
