Parent Involvement And Our “Circle Of Support”
The strength of any community-based organization is determined by the connection and contribution of the people who comprise it. It is the ever-expanding circle of supportive family members, friends, neighbors, alumni, corporate sponsors, and fans that makes BDPA the one-of-a-kind organization it is!
Performers sometimes come from around the world, and their circle of support spans that distance as well. Alumni, parents, family, friends, and fans world-wide purchase CDs, DVDs, videos, books, and souvenir clothing at contests and via our online store at bluedevils.org. Supporters fit and maintain uniforms, drive and maintain vehicles. This essential volunteer support at events and competitions we sponsor helps BDPA programs to thrive.
Supporting BD Performing Arts
Tour fees, prize money, and proceeds from the BD Bingo operation provide only a fraction of the revenue needed to fund BDPA programs each year.
As a public charity, BDPA is supported by gifts and grants from individuals, foundations, and corporations. Family and friends of performing members can help support BDPA – various methods for contributing are outlined on our website. Benefits of BDPA donors include discounts on BD merchandise, and tickets to special events, including BDPA-sponsored corps contests and DCI finals.
Donation information is available at bluedevils.org/donate
