DHS Music Boosters Seek Sponsors for 2020-2021

Dow High Music Boosters is looking for local businesses or families interested in partnering with our organization as sponsors for the 2020-2021 school year.

Given the uncertain times and restrictions we are facing with gatherings, our three typical fundraisers, RenFair, Fruit Sale & Jazz and More may not be able to be held or look different than in the past. This makes our sponsors even more critical and valuable to fundraising efforts this year!

This year’s goal is to raise a combined $25,000 to help finance virtual concert videography, instrument purchases/repairs, music, new orchestra folders, choir uniform purchases/repairs, scholarships for private lessons and other operational expenses that fall outside the MPS budget.

Please click on the sponsorship form to see details of sponsorship levels. Sponsorships will be accepted at any time, but please consider pledging your support by Friday, November 20 to assist with our financial planning. By partnering with Dow High Music Boosters, you join a community that supports and genuinely impacts the outstanding music programs offered at DHS! Feel free to contact us at DHSMusicSponsors@gmail.com with any questions.
