Crescendo Campaign

The Sioux Falls School District and Individual Student Accounts (ISA) cover approximately 60% of the bands annual operating budget.  The Lincoln Band Parent Association raises the remaining 40%, to assist in funding uniform maintenance, potential uniform purchase, show props, electronic equipment, maintain vehicles, provide travel assistance, etc. that is not included in the ISA budget. Competing with the best marching bands in the country through the Bands of America competition adds to the growing needs of the program. The Crescendo Campaign was created to assist in the fundraising for these needs.
