    Understanding Fundraising for Ingraham Performing Arts Boosters (IPAB)

    The primary purpose of IPAB fundraising is to raise money to support the drama, choir, band, and orchestra programs. We hope that all performing arts families will find a way to support the fundraising efforts detailed below. IPAB also organizes voluntary fundraising opportunities to help students offset expenses related to their involvement in performing arts (trips, supplies, etc.).
