Marching Band

Marching Band Fees

The fees associated with the ETHS Marching Band are designed to cover the cost of travel, room, and board to our over-night band camp at North Central College, game-day and competition-day meals, props, costumes, and our annual events such as the Potluck Dinner, Marengo Barbecue, Senior Night Dinner, and Marching Band Banquet. Additionally, these fees outfit our members with the required uniform attire associated with the high school marching band. If there is a financial need regarding these fees, please contact Mr. Bufis via email at [email protected] for information on applying for financial aid. No student will be turned away because of difficulty with Marching Band Fees.

Scholarships & Donations

Every year, several of our ETHS Marching Band students receive financial aid through donations from generous band supporters in the Evanston community. If you wish to make a donation to support the ETHS Marching Band students in need of financial assistance, please enter an amount via the Donation item. Your donations are greatly appreciated, and others will surely benefit from your kindness. All donations will be followed by a letter noting your tax-deductible contribution in September.
