The Giles County High School Band is one of the oldest, largest and award winning organizations on the campus at Giles County High School. We  are  very  proud  of  the  accomplishments of these students and how hard they work on a daily basis. Everyone talks about the state of education in America today, but the cold, hard reality is education has seen many budget cuts over recent years. Budget cuts occur yearly and the arts are always one of the  first places politicians  look to trim the budget. It surprises many to learn the high school band programs in  Giles County  receive very little financial support from the school system. This lack of funding jeopardizes the livelihood of an instrumental music program. Operating and maintaining a quality band  program  is  very expensive and efforts at fundraising continue to be more challenging every year. Because the students and parents (Giles County Band Backers) are responsible for earning our yearly operating expenses, it becomes increasingly difficult to sell items to earn our income.

We need your help! This year, the Giles County High School Band will travel to four competitions, perform at all the GCHS football games, march in 4  parades,  perform  numerous  concerts, attend concert  festivals,  and perform  at many  other  school  and civic events. This all comes at a high cost. Generally our operating budget is between $70,000 - $100,000 per year depending  on the travel schedule and needs of the band. This money goes to pay for additional staff, equipment, music, designers, travel, maintenance and much more. This year we are launching a campaign to purchase new band uniforms which we badly need.  Our current uniforms are 10 years old and have been heavily used. Some are to the point of disrepair. We have also grown numerically which means we are out of uniforms! While this is a great problem to have, we are in a position where we must purchase new uniforms for Fall of 2017 . We have had several designed and have decided to purchase uniforms from a company called Fruhauf located in Wichita, Kansas. The uniforms are $400.00 per uniform and we plan to order 100 new uniforms. The uniforms are made of  the  highest  quality  materials and have a 10 year warranty. You can make a difference by pledging your financial  support. Any amount you donate goes directly toward our uniform fund.  Your contribution is considered a donation and is 100% tax deductible. Attached is a copy of the  design  of  the  new uniform. Thank you for helping the  Giles County High  School Band  keep  its rich  heritage  alive  in  our community!  Your support  is greatly appreciated!
