FCPS Required Fee


The West Potomac Band Patrons Organization works to cover the part of our band’s budget that isn’t met by FCPS. 

In addition to $35,000 in group fundraising, this year’s budget counts on an average voluntary contribution of $50.

If you’d like more information, click this link:

West Potomac Band Patrons Organization Voluntary Contribution

If you’d like a lot more information, come to a boosters meeting! We’d love to have you.

To make that average voluntary contribution of $50 click on the button below. (Think $50 isn’t nearly enough for the amazing experience of West Po Band, and want to give more? We understand. In that case, go back to the home page, read about “levels of giving” and click the donate button there instead.)

Remember that because WPBPO is a 501c3 corporation, your contribution is tax-deductible! As you think about where to put your charitable dollars, we hope you’ll keep in mind that our community’s young musicians are a worthy cause.


Like all FCPS band programs, our Wolverine Band is funded partially through FCPS, partially through required fees paid to FCPS by participants, and partially through band booster money.
