Why such an emphasis on fundraising?
The Bullard Band Backers is a Non-Profit Parent/Guardian Organization led by an Executive Board of Parent Volunteers. The BBB dedicates its time to supporting The BHS Band & Color Guard in many areas, but its main focus is money. Fresno Unified provides our students with instruments, music & buses, but the rest (which is A LOT) is up to the BBB. The Directors and Students rely on the BBB to fill in the financial gap left by FUSD. With a remaining operating budget over $80K/year, this is no small undertaking! BBB Fundraising happens all year long. We know Band Families like variety, that's why the BBB offers a variety of Fundraising & Volunteer opportunities. Every Band Family is encouraged to participate in as many fundraisers as possible to help us reach our financial goal by the end of each fiscal year. Many hands make light work! It is because of the Bullard Band Backers Parent Fundraising & Volunteer efforts the BHS Marching Band & Color Guard can participate in the many competitions and festivals around the Valley. Welcome to an incredible organization dedicated to supporting an excellent Band & Color Guard!
