The Limestone Band Boosters’ mission is to support the Limestone Community High School (LCHS) band programs by providing practical and financial assistance. Money raised through the Band Boosters is used to lower fees, purchase equipment, and provide additional education and experiences for the students. The time volunteered by the Boosters avoids expenses and enables the staff to focus on instructing the students.
An official sponsorship is a great way to show your support for the LCHS Bands program. Depending on your level of giving, there are a variety of benefits provided, too. Please see the Sponsorship Letter for details.
Because the Limestone Band Boosters, Inc. is a 501(c)3 charitable organization, your donations are tax deductible. (Note: Per IRS rules, fees and other payments are not tax deductible, nor are donations designated for a specific student.)
You can also donate money directly:
- When you use your PayPal account via the PayPal Giving Fund, 100% of your donation goes to the LCHS Band program.
- If you do not have a PayPal account: A portion of your donation will be used to pay PayPal’s convenience fee.
- Send a check to Limestone Band Boosters, c/o Limestone Community High School, 4201 Airport Rd, Bartonville, IL 61607. Or, if you know a student in the band, they can drop the check in the lockbox in the band room. If the band room is not open, you can take the money to the Business Office.
You can also donate while you shop: Sign up for Kroger Community Rewards, and Kroger will donate a portion of each sale to the band program.
