BAND BOOSTER VOLUNTARY CONTRIBUTION
The West Potomac Band Patrons Organization works to cover the part of our band’s budget that isn’t met by FCPS.
In addition to $35,000 in group fundraising, this year’s budget counts on an average voluntary contribution of $50.

In that case, go to the donate page, read about “levels of giving” and click the donate button there instead.)
