Who We Are
The Mercer Island Schools Band Boosters was formed to actively support, promote, and encourage the 5th Grade, IMS, MIHS, and Jazz band programs of the Mercer Island School District. We are you; band parents excited to give back to a program teaching our kids not only music, but invaluable life lessons.
What We Do
Through fundraising, we enable clinics, one-on-one musical support, scholarships, instrument rentals, leadership opportunities, training, and unique musical opportunities for the Mercer Island Bands and so much more.
How We Do It
We raise money and like to have fun while doing it! Our Band Together party provides the lion's share of funds raised. RSVP today for your tickets. The Band Camp BBQ is a great way to build community, enjoy a late summer evening, and help raise funds. We are always looking for Sponsors (see our footer) and Donors.
Humanitarian Aid to Our Partner Bands
Puerto Rico's Earthquakes
Guayanilla, home to our partner band BEG, is at or near the epicenter of the recent major earthquakes. Our friends and their families have been directly impacted by this disaster.
Learn how you can help.
While Australia is no stranger to bushfires, this fire season is unprecedented in many ways.
How can you help? Derek Rose, band director of St. Patrick's College Strathfield, recommended supporting their local Fire Service.
