There are multiple ways to support INOV8 and its mission to provide a world-class educational experience to its members. Become a donor with a contribution of $5 dollars a month or any amount.
Each year, we have to budget carefully to make sure that we can give the members the experience they deserve, stay competitive in a fast-growing activity, but keep it affordable for everyone that wants to participate.
This year, we will need to make purchases that have not fit into the budget in previous years. Since our founding, we have been fortunate enough to have the support of our partnered band program, Floyd Central High School, and have been borrowing a sound system, auxiliary hardware, concert instruments/cymbals, and microphones. For a few reasons, this is no longer viable, and we have to make these major purchases to become fully independent.
Here is a break down of the costs for each purchase we will be making:
Sound System from PreSonus Audio Electronics - $5,488.60
Auxiliary Hardware from Pageantry Innovations - $5,856.75
Concert Instruments/Cymbals from TAMA Drums and Zildjian Cymbals - $5,032.50
Microphones from Melody Music - $2,295.58
Total Costs - $18,673.43
These costs do not include all of the other costs we have throughout the year: sticks and mallets, drumheads, cables and accessories, uniforms, tarp, props, equipment transport, rehearsal and housing space, equipment storage, music and visual design, instructional staff compensation, and the list goes on. This amounts to well over $50,000 and is barely covered by member fees. So as you can see, we need all the support we can get!
If you would like to support a member in this way with your donation, but are not personally acquainted with any, please feel free to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org, and we will find a member in need. Otherwise, we would love to accept your donation, and it would be forever appreciated. Any and all proceeds keep this group moving forward year to year.
Furthermore, donations of $500 or more, we would love to add your name/company to the back of our show shirts as a sponsor. For donations of $1000 or more, we would be happy add you or your company to the website in our “Sponsors” section.
