To offset the costs of programming and competitions, the Band Boosters organize and run a number of different fundraising activities each year. To be successful, we rely on participation from the students in the Band and Guard programs, as well as the support of families and friends.
Donation Day is a fundraiser involving members of both the Milford High School Band and Choir programs. It usually take place each August, with students going door-to-door in the Milford community collecting donations. This year, Donation Day will be held as an online event at www.milfordbands.org/donate.
Donation Day is mandatory for all Marching Band students. This year’s Virtual Donation Day takes place September 2-30.

The Milford Band Boosters manage the Student Store inside the main entrance of the high school. It is open before and after school and sells snacks, school supplies, and spirit wear. This is a profitable fundraiser for the Band Boosters that relies entirely on adult volunteers for staffing.
Spring Mattress Sale
Each spring, Band Boosters sponsors a mattress sale at the High School. Brand new, name brand, top quality mattress sets with full manufacturer warranties are offered at much better prices than at retail stores. All sizes, price ranges, delivery and financing are available, and floor models are on display at the Milford High School cafeteria. Every sale will benefit the Milford High School Band program!
