The Northstars Marching Band is a self-supporting extra-curricular activity.  The Northstars Band Parents organization, through a General Fund, provides the funds necessary to purchase uniforms, flags, props, and other equipment and supplies during the season, to ensure the marching band has the resources to be successful.

The Northstars Band Parents hold numerous fundraisers throughout the marching band season to support the General Fund and help students and parents raise funds to apply toward the costs of participating in marching band.  Many students and parents are able to fund their entire season through fundraising.   We offer a wide variety of fundraisers to provide students and parents the flexibility to participate in the fundraisers that work best for them.

If there is a fundraiser you have done in past groups you would like to suggest, please talk with a member of the board!

See our Calendar at the bottom of the page for current and future Fundraising opportunities.

Contact the parent board with fundraising questions.
