A variety of optional fundraisers are available to parents and students to raise funds for individual student accounts and for AMP as a whole.  Students accounts funds may be applied toward individual expenses such as uniforms, school music camps, sponsored trips, music lessons and other activities related to the music program at Glenbard West High School.  Fundraisers that benefit AMP as a whole go toward equipment, awards, private lesson scholarships, uniforms and expenses listed in the budget (see Overview Of Amp for current and past budgets).
