The Spirit of 76 Boosters is a 501c3 charitable organization dedicated to fostering a love of music in all students, and providing opportunities to develop and display their musical skills. Made up of a volunteer board, the Boosters offset essential program costs such as coaching, competition fees, equipment, transportation, staging, uniforms and instrument repair. Funds are raised through special initiatives, restaurant dine-outs, product sales, online fundraisers, and events.

Below are some of the easiest ways to get involved and support us. Thank you!
