Fundraising is a crucial part of a successful school music program. In order for us to offer first-class opportunities to your student, we must all participate in fund raising. Planning and implementing fundraising is the primary responsibility of the Chorus Booster Association.
The Choral Department and Boosters work hard to keep student costs low for trips and other activities and work to offset those low fees with fundraising efforts. Please keep in mind all of the often unseen, behind the scenes expenses when considering your level of commitment to fundraising. Boosters encourage and support ownership in the entire program from all students and families at all levels. Your help is a necessity to continue the support of this outstanding program. Your child is worth it!
Choir contributions are an important part of providing outstanding opportunities to your students. Please give as you can.

Sponsorship Campaign - August - Sept 1
Sponsorship provides an opportunity for area businesses and patrons to show their support for arts education and the LHS choral program. In return for a sponsor’s generous support we will provide several advertising opportunities during our choral concert season. The campaign is the most important fundraiser of the year. We ask each student to sell $50 in sponsorships.
Cookie Dough and Candle Sales - October
Each year we sell cookie dough and Candleberry Candles. These make great gifts for the holiday season.
Snap-Raise - March-April
Snap-raise is an online crowd-funding campaign. We are grateful to all our supporters!
Fundraising Donation Program - Year-Round
We ask all students to participate in fundraising efforts to the best of their ability. Chorus boosters sponsors 3 main fundraisers per year (Sponsorship Campaign, Cookie Dough & Candle sales, and Snap-raise crowd-source fundraising). If fundraising is not for you, Lafayette Choir Boosters, Inc. gladly accepts fundraising donations instead. Choir Boosters suggests a donation amount of $150 or $50 per fundraiser to help us meet the fundraising needs of the organization.

Chorus Gala and Silent Auction - Late September
The first annual chorus gala and silent auction was a tremendous success. This is another one of the ways the Chorus Boosters are trying to offer fundraising opportunities that do not require students selling a product! Consider supporting this effort by volunteering for a committee or soliciting a donation for the auction, or providing food!
Non-Sales Fundraisers - Year-Round
Throughout the year the chorus boosters sponsor events and activities that help raiser funds for our organization. Some past activities have included Amazon gift wrapping, pancake breakfast, karaoke, and others. Please consider giving of your time if you are contacted. Boosters are always working hard to find non-sales forms of fund-raising including grants and corporate sponsorships. For more information or to share ideas, contact the LCB President.
