The La Cueva High School Big Bad Bear Band Boosters are parent volunteers who work to support the Big Bad Bear Band programs.
We are a registered 501 (c)(3) not-for-profit organization. Donations to the general account (not student accounts) are tax deductible under the IRS Code.
If your company participates in United Way or the Combined Federal Campaigns, please consider a donation to the Boosters. Donations can be made via payroll deduction. Any donations are always welcomed and appreciated. United Way: write "La Cueva Band Boosters, Albuquerque, NM" in the designation box. Combined Federal Campaign: our CFC number is 79004.
Just as important (if not more so) than financial donations are donations of your time. An award-winning band program needs a lot of support and that is provided by the band parents through the Band Boosters. In addition to coordinating fundraisers, parents:
chaperone all performance events and trips;
provide administration and maintenance of band uniforms
build props for the marching show
distribute drinks and supplies for all performances
administer email and phone trees to broadcast important information
help with fundraisers,
help with the craft shows, and food sales
help with many, many more tasks!
GET INVOLVED! A few hours of time from each parent adds up. Please contact the Booster Secretary as listed on the Leadership Page to volunteer.
