While the Madison County Board of Education gives the Band substantial funding, the amount provided is nowhere near what the band needs to compete on a championship level. Therefore, it is necessary to assess a contribution requirement for participating in the MCHS Marching Band.

Contributions paid after 8/2/2019 $550

The Madison Central Band is a non-profit public educational institution.  We spend every penny earned or donated on providing our students with the most outstanding educational experience possible.  Your “Fair Share Contribution” represents less than half of the cost of an individual to participate in Band. The remainder of the band’s finances comes through fundraisers, donations, MCHS, and Madison County Board of Education contributions.

Parent and student help is essential toward maintaining a successful educational program. Your ideas, connections, and experiences are much needed as our band continues to grow and improve. To learn more, see our fundraising opportunities. 

Simply put, we need you!
