    Dear Ingraham Performing Arts Supporter,

     A new school year is upon us. Please join us in supporting the operating budget of the Ingraham Performing Arts Boosters (IPAB). We are appealing to you to help fund programs that directly benefit our children.

    IPAB supports the arts by supplementing the district’s budget. Whether buying uniforms, instruments, and sound equipment; paying for production costs, choreography, and the student showcase; or providing scholarships and accompanists; when there is a need in the performing arts, IPAB is there. Your support of the operating budget is essential to fulfilling each of these needs.

    Ingraham Performing Arts gives students the opportunity to test the limits of their creativity. Through drama, voice, or instrument students are encouraged to push themselves to new heights. Your generous gift allows us to maintain a quality program for everyone.

    Any amount you give will help our students soar. As they are successful, so are all of us as their supporters. We are excited by the possibilities and look forward to sharing this year with you. Thank you in advance for choosing to make a difference in a student’s life. To donate by credit or debit card simply click the button.

    If you would like to write a check, please make it payable to “Ingraham Performing Arts Boosters” and write “Direct Appeal” in the memo line. This can be mailed to Ingraham High School, ATTN IPAB, 1819 N 135th St, Seattle, WA, 98133. If you prefer, you can also turn it in to your student’s performing arts teacher.

    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.).

    Have a new idea for IPAB fundraising? Eager to get involved? Have a question? Please e-mail us at ingrahamperformingarts@gmail.com.
