Fundraising is one of the most challenging and important activities to which your student will be asked to contribute as a member of the Ledford Panther Regiment. The bulk of our efforts are supported by parents and the fundraising efforts of the Band Boosters organization. Expenses for instruments, marching band uniform upkeep, purchase of new uniforms, music, transporting equipment, and travel—none of which are covered by our allocated school budget—present a tremendous challenge. With the help of our students & parents, we fundraise in many ways. Please consider supporting the Band Boosters by making a meaningful difference for so many deserving students.

With certain fundraising opportunities, we offer our students a way they can offset a large portion or even all of their band fees.  Each fundraiser is different, so be sure to see below which fundraisers give back to the general booster's fund and which ones give back to the student's account.

Band Festival Ad Sales

Each year, we host many bands from around the state at our Annual Ledford Band Festival. This year will be our 33rd year. Our Band Festival offers advertising opportunities in our festival program as well as trophy sponsorships. This is a great way for businesses to have their name in front of hundreds of people as well as help support the Ledford Band.

Ford Fundraiser

Raise funds for your school or community with Ford.

It's so simple!

For every valid test drive taken in a Ford vehicle at a registered one-day event, Ford will donate $20 to the participating school or community organization up to $6,000 per event. The goal is to raise the maximum donation of $6,000 at every Drive 4 UR School event.
