Band Classes ∞ Marching Ensemble ∞ Winter Guard ∞ Winter Drumline ∞ Cadet Drumline
Who are the Boosters? ALL the parents and guardians of ALL the students that participate in Band Classes, Marching Ensemble, Winter Guard, Winter Drumline, and Cadet Drumline for Tigard High School are members of the Tigard High Band & Auxiliary Boosters. The Tigard High Band & Auxiliary Booster group is managed by an member elected Board of Directors and the Tigard High Band Director(s). It is essential to the continued health and growth of the programs that parents and family members become involved. We have a need for volunteers on a continued basis to keep the program running smoothly and be successful. This also includes parents/guardians that are willing to join the Board of Directors. We fundraise about 50% of the cost of the band & auxiliary programs. We are a very active & visible organization with events going on just about every month. We could not do this without the help of the parents and the community.
The Tigard High Band & Auxiliary Boosters is a federally recognized 501(c)(3) non-profit organization who’s charter is to support the Tigard High Band & Auxiliary programs; Band Classes, Marching Ensemble, Winter Guard, Winter Drumline, and Cadet Drumline.
This area is one of the most important parts of the program. We still do most of our communication through email but are expanding our communications platform to included text messages, social media, and a website. We need everyone to provide us with an email & cell phone number. From time to time you will receive an email regarding upcoming volunteer opportunities and important program information. The frequency depends on the number of activities AND the level of response that is received.

The Tigard High School Band & Auxiliary groups involves many students and it takes a team of adults to help keep the program growing. We ask that all parents/guardians volunteer in various areas throughout the year. Please do not assume that “someone else will do it” when volunteer opportunities are announced, assume that you are the “someone else”.
Here are some of our regular fundraisers that everyone is expected to pitch in and help with:
Garage Sale – August
Craft Fair – December
Rhythmfest, Winter Guard Premier – February
Can Drives (One Fall & One Spring)
Jazz & Guitar Night – Winter
Tigard Festival of Balloons – June
Most of these event also require someone to act as the Event Coordinator, so expect for us to reach out to fill those positions.
We also have other opportunities that present themselves throughout the year.
COMMUNITY OUTREACH – Donations and Sponsors
In order to keep the program going and growing we seek to acquire and maintain a group of sustaining donors and sponsorships from the community. If you own, work for, or know of a business or individual that you think would be willing to sponsor our award winning & championship programs with recurring donations of money or supplies, please reach out to us. If you have experience in recruiting sponsors, community outreach or advertising, we’d love some input on what we can do better.
