Cardiff School District

Inspiring a love of learning

About Cardiff MusicBoosters... 

We are a sub-committee of the Cardiff SEA working to support music education in the Cardiff School District.


On behalf of the Cardiff community, to keep instrumental music education available to our children.


Due to budget constraints we receive very little district funding and as a public school program we cannot charge fees.  The band program is dependent on parent donations and community fundraising.  Parent contributions account for up to 75% of our budget each year!
We rely on: 
  • Donations from parents
  • Bake sales at concerts & in-kind donations from restaurants such as Today's Pizza and Pacific Coast Grill
  • Fundraisers
  • Grants, including the City of Encinitas and Mizel Family Foundation Community Grant Program
  • Community supporters, such as the Coastal Communities Concert Band
  • Cardiff School District and Cardiff SEA


  • Time: Volunteers are needed (for concerts and events, administrative help, fundraising, etc.) Contact us if you can help!  
  • Money: Contribute what you can; be a Band Angel if you can
  • In Kind Donations: Restaurant donations and instrument donations are always in need!
  • Get Involved/Participate:
