Forms for the 2017 Marching Band Season
Wherever your child plugs into the Ironwood Music Program, your time with the band will hopefully be one of the most significant and enjoyable times of your parenting journey. When you spend time with these awesome kids you can't help but be inspired by their hard work and dedication. You get to know their friends and appreciate the social network that is supporting your child through high school. And as one parent summed up their experience, "The bottom line is this is fun!" Whatever brings you to the IBCF, you are welcome and their is a place for you to make a difference.
You are the core of the IBCF. Your support is vital for the success of your student and of the band in general. There are many ways for you to plug in. Please consider the following opportunities and choose where you'd like to pitch in.
Be an officer/Team Leader/Volunteer
We have over twenty (20) volunteer officer positions that will give you a place to invest your time and skills in the band. Whether you are good at planning, networking, or just like getting to know people, there is a place for you to volunteer in the IBCF. Just fill out the form below and indicate what kinds of things you would like to do. Most jobs can be done in an hour or two a week.
We also need volunteers to assists with events, concerts, performances and festivals. If you are interested in volunteering please submit your contact information via the "Volunteer" button below.
Be a financial supporter
If you have a crazy schedule and just don't have time to volunteer, then you can support the band financially. While we do fundraisers and have corporate sponsors, the core of our budget is covered by band families, alumni and other community members who regularly donate to the band. Like any non-profit, we need to be able to budget for regular expenses and save up for big purchases like musical instruments (even medium quality used instruments cost thousands of dollars.) So setting up a regular monthly donation that automatically goes to the band is an investment in the band of today and tomorrow. If you would like to support the band financially, click on the "Donate Now" button below.
Be a Band Fan
The most important way for every parent to support the band is help your child stay plugged in to band activities and to support their continued growth as a musician. Attend as many performances as you can and be part of the audience that cheers them on. You can also "like" us on Facebook. It's a great way to stay connected with the happenings of the band and also see current pictures and videos from the band. Here is a link to our FB page: Ironwood Band Fans
