We will rely on the support of companies and individuals in our community for the Southside High and Rainbow Middle School Bands. Our sponsorship program allows these companies and individuals make donations in the form of funds, goods, or services to support our bands in their continued pursuit of excellence.

We strongly encourage all of our band community to support the generous sponsors and thank those individuals who have extended their generosity and belief in our students.


By lending your support, you show the entire community that your organization is committed to continuing the legacy of high standards of The Pride Music Association.

The Pride Music Association needs your help!

The Pride Music Association is in need of corporate sponsors in our community. Our band programs are growing rapidly. It is because of the support of contributors such as yourself that this program is able to exist and operate at the level at which it does. With the many activities planned for the coming year, we are going to need strong support from the community. We can provide our sponsors with valuable benefits of a relationship with our program. Our Bands strive to give every student a quality musical education, as well as teach valuable life skills.

Why does this matter to us and to you? Do you know that studies report that music education provides many benefits for our students and our community?

  • Students receiving music education are less likely to be involved in drugs or alcohol abuse, and have better attendance in school.
  • Music encourages creativity and imagination.
  • Music education develops collaborative and teamwork skills, technological competencies, and flexible thinking.
  • Performance in shows, festivals, parades, and concerts builds confidence and self-esteem.

There are academic benefits to students who study and perform music as well. Studies show that learning to play an instrument enhances a student’s academic performance in math, language arts, foreign language and other academic areas. Students also achieve higher grades in high school. Even standardized test scores such as the SAT are higher among student musicians.

The various programs of The Pride Music Association include: Southside High School Marching Band, “The Pride of Southside”, Southside High School Symphonic Band, Southside High School Jazz Band, Southside High School Drumline, Southside High School Danceline “The Crimsonettes”, Southside High School Colorguard, Southside High School Winterguard, Rainbow Middle School Intermediate Band, and Rainbow Middle School Beginning Band.  These ensembles are all very active in the community, performing at football games, local and regional parades, concerts, and community functions. “The Pride of Southside” also performs at various local and regional competitions and represents our community well.

In order to ensure the best possible experience and aid to the growth of The Pride Music Association, we need your help! We ask for support from our community, from your company, and individuals to be a sponsor of The Pride Music Association. Your sponsorship will guarantee to make a lasting difference in our community and in the lives of our band students.

The Pride Music Association is a non-profit 501(c3) organization and any donations made are tax deductible. We offer various packages to suit your own individual needs. These contributions may be made through instalments, if needed. We also understand that you may want to donate discretely without receiving a package, and such donations are welcome as well. Will you please help us and send in your sponsorship form? With a donation of any amount, you can truly influence the lives of many young adults in our community. We hope that you will consider contributing to this great cause.

The Levels of Sponsorship and Sponsorship Form is here in our Sponsorship Letter.

Thank you in advance for your support of the Pride Music Association!
