Fundraising

The Queen Elizabeth Band program offers many rich opportunities for students that are made possible through the various fundraising activities offered by the QEBPA.  Fundraising allows the students enrolled in the program and their families to earn credits towards band trips and other expenses.  As per our QEBPA Fundraising Credit Policy

  • 80% of the profit is held in an account for the individual student
  • 20% is to support QEBPA’s general operations and families who are in financial need

Please consider coordinating one of our fundraisers. We need four fundraiser coordinators for 2017-18!  If you have any questions about volunteering please e-mail This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
