Sickles High School Bands is a large, growing, and high achieving performing arts curriculum where excellence in musicianship, character, and leadership is emphasized. We provide a top-quality band experience for the benefit of our student musicians, our school, and our local community while keeping our band dues as affordable as possible for parents. To achieve this and to supplement low school operating budgets, we must engage in a vigorous fundraising program and depend on the generous in-kind and sponsorship support of individuals, funding organizations, and corporations for goods, services, and cash donations.
Please consider Sickles High School Bands when reviewing your charitable options. What better investment than music education whose impact on our students will be remembered and demonstrated throughout their lives? All donations are tax-deductible to our registered not for profit organization 501(c)3. Thank you in advance for your consideration.
Please call Caroline Goodrich at 727.408.0406 for further discussion of your fundraising options and to review our ongoing in-kind needs list.

BE A TRAILER SPONSOR
One of the easiest ways for a local business to support the Sickles Band Program; a naming sponsorship on our travel trailer.
Your logo rides along with the award-winning Sickles High School Marching Wall of Sound and our other performance ensembles everywhere they go throughout the Tampa Bay area and beyond. When not in use, the trailer is parked at Sickles High School as a stationary billboard.
Contact us and let’s discuss your promotional needs. Thank you in advance for supporting Music in Our Schools.

We have needs for certain items throughout the year and others will help us stay organized. All items new or gently used please. Please contact us to underwrite any wish list items. Thank you!
SUPPORT NEEDS FOR SECTIONS (Updated 07-31-18):
Our SHS Band
is comprised of “sections” by instrument; the trumpet section, the clarinet
section, and so on. They are assigned
white cabinets or a room in the main band room to store their instruments and
supplies. This is a central gathering
point for students and their “stuff” daily. Each section has a section leader(s) who takes care of many things
throughout the year for the students.
These supplies, requested by the students, will assist them to run their section more smoothly and keep cold and flu season in hand. Some may need to be replenished throughout the year. Send supplies in with your student for their section or for the general band replenishment. Ask them to give donations of supplies to Section Leaders. (Needs List compiled with the feedback of Band Leadership).
