Fundraising for the PHS Music Program
Our 2020/2021 The GoFundMe Campaign has been successful in getting us a couple more months of support, however, with the future uncertain, we still need to fund our adjunct faculty for the rest of this semester and next. To that end we’re asking for anyone who has contributed to consider another contribution and to help us spread the word.
Fundraising for the PHS Music Program is an awesome way to continue to support the students during the covid-19 restrictions. The PHS Music Boosters is a 501(c)3 charity and anything given is tax deductible.
GoFundMe isn’t the only way to help the music program. Here are 3 additional ways to help:
GoFundMe offers a one-time or recurring option to support. With your tax-deductible donation, you will ensure that our students will continue to enjoy the positive influence of music in their lives—you are making a difference! Thank you in advance for your contribution to this cause that means so much to our students.

Bake Sale/Holiday Sale
Creating a community bake or holiday sale is a great way to support the music program and have a great meal! Here are some tips:
- Plan your date and venue. Proper planning is the first ingredient of success. Ensure that your sale does not clash with another important event that may detract attention. Make sure the venue is accessible for families and for you to unload everything.
- Choose your bakers. Everyone knows that the more baked goods, the merrier. With this is mind, choose as many bakers as your heart desires. Let them know in advance the date you have set, to give them plenty of time to prepare.
- Choose a theme. Having a theme is a great way to get people involved in, and excited about, your sale. If your planned date falls on or near a holiday, like Easter, consider having a holiday-themed sale. Themes can be based on anything, like your favourite animal or your favourite film.
Thanks from all of us for your continued support!
