Giving and Material Donations

Giving is not just in the form of money, but can also be in the form of time, talent and materials. The music program always has projects that need some help bringing to life. We are always looking for people who are able to volunteer that have skills in the areas of:


Carpentry and/or welding

Fundraising or event planning

Cooking Skills

Sound recording and mixing experience

and many other areas....


If you would like to help out , but aren't sure how, Contact our Band Director, David Jones, for more information.


The Band Program also is able to accept donation of working instruments for our program. Many people have children who went through a band program, or themselves were members of a band, but no longer use their instrument and it is now collecting dust somewhere in their house.  The FHS Band Program would like to provide a home to these instruments where we can ensure their continued use by some of our students in need.


Monetary Donations

Monetary donations can be given either to the FHS Boosters for specific projects and needs, donated through Forest High School for general purposes as a tax deductable gift, or given in the form of Program Sponosrships. Please Contact the Director, David Jones, if you have questions on how best to procede with your gift. You can also donate online here!
