The Palm Springs High School Band is largely self funded due to the diligent work of volunteers from the Palm Springs High School Band Boosters. Donations to the Band Boosters are Tax Deductible as the Band Booster Organization is a registered 501(c)3.
2023-24 is a very special year for the band- we are returning to our tradition of international travel for the first time in five years! It is our belief that access to travel is transformative for every student that has access to it. Research shows this as well- students who travel internationally experience a more global understanding, which benefits their development as adults.
It is our mission that no student who is able to embark on international travel is denied the opportunity because of lack of funds.
With that said, to get all 90 members of the 2023-24 Spirit of the Sands overseas will cost $240,000. Therefore, we are calling on our community to help!
Please peruse the various ways that you can support the Palm Springs High School Spirit of the Sands as they represent Palm Springs in Spain.
This GoFundMe is the best option for funding every member of the band equally. All contributions made here will be divided between everyone.
This fundraiser is best if there is a specific member of the band that you are interested in sponsoring to go.
This is for businesses or individuals who would like recognition in the program that will travel with us. The band will perform five concerts in Spain, and the size of these donations will sponsor principal chairs, soloists, or sections of musicians.
This is a great way to support the band- whether it be a specific member or everyone all together- and get the absolute freshest Christmas tree in Southern California. When purchasing, you can choose to apply the profits directly to one students' account or to the whole band!
