Freeman Band Boosters Mission 

The Douglas Freeman Band Booster organization operates solely to support band and color guard students. The Boosters raise money to support expenses not covered by Freeman High School or the Henrico County Public School System.  Band Booster fundraising benefits every student in the band program through the purchase of items such as musical instruments, band equipment, uniforms, field show designs, sheet music, and all costs associated with competitions, football games, and performances.  Booster members assist the band director in the supervision of students and the logistics of competitions and performances.  The Band Booster Executive Board serves as advisor to the Band Director.  The Band Boosters are a valuable resource and aid to the success of your student's music program.
