Raising Funds

ABW’s fundraising role is very important. Due to severe cutbacks, the district (WSCUHSD) funding allows us $4.54 per student per year to cover all expenses. All funding of the Program Coordinator position, which is necessary for the smooth running of Analy’s 5 ensembles, is provided by the ABW.

Our four primary sources of income are: your direct donation of $100, eScrip participation, concert proceeds, and the Fall Music Festival in October.

How You Can Help

The best thing you can do is make a $100 donation or pledge to ABW. You can do either below through our PayPal account. This money goes directly to the Analy Instrumental Music Program.

The second best way to help is to volunteer to help at ABW fundraising events.
