Band of Blue Uniform Drive

Jefferson High School, by way of the Jefferson Band Parents Association, is raising funds to purchase new marching band uniforms. The current uniforms were first worn in 2000, and are intended to last 10-14 years. They have been patched, repaired, and reinforced. They have served us well, but it is time to replace them.

To fund this large expense, we are looking to businesses and individuals for donations. If you have any business contacts who may be interested in helping us out, please let us know!

Donations come with various perks to the individual or business. Click forms below for details.

Please find the Individual Donor pdf form or the Business Donor pdf form below

Thank You!
to those that have helped us with a step forward on the Jefferson Band Uniform Drive!!

As you know, school systems are under considerable budgetary pressures. Therefore, we turn to the generosity of our West Side parents, alumni, community, and Cedar Rapids businesses.

Your financial support will enable the students of The Band of Blue to debut these new uniforms in the fall of 2014. A new uniform will cost $400.00.

Our goal is the purchase of 200 uniforms. The Jefferson Band Parent Association is a 501c3 group and your contribution is tax deductible. A receipt will be returned to you for your records. 

Thank you to the parents, grandparents, community members, and Cedar Rapids businesses that have already donated to the Band Uniform Drive as well as the matching gifts that have been received from Alliant Energy! 

Thank you for your past and continued support of Jefferson High School and your Band of Blue!
