Salt Fundraiser



In pre-COVID times, the Iowa City Area Music Auxiliary hosted a physical Car Wash to raise money for ICCSD band, choir, and orchestras. Because of the challenges faced by the pandemic in 2020, we canceled the physical fall car wash and created new a new tradition: The Salt Fundraiser.

This year, we once again are selling bags and jugs of salt to melt the winter ice on your sidewalks and driveways!

To order, visit

Costco has partnered with us to provide a socially distant fundraiser! Salt Pre-orders will be taken online from October 9 to 23. Then, patrons will pick up their salt on November 10, at Costco in Coralville. Parent and Student Volunteers will load up the salt using our easy carline pick up in the Costco parking garage.

The funds raised will help purchase sheet music, equipment, PPE, entry fees, and more – for music students from 5th–12th grade. Our goal is to raise $25,000 with this fundraiser.

Logo Design Contest: Winner selected!

Presenting the new Iowa City Music Auxiliary logo!

During the school closure last March-April, we held a contest for ICCSD students to design a new logo for the Music Auxiliary. We received several wonderful submissions from across the district, and a winner has been selected.

Congratulations and thank you to Angelica Hamilton from South East Junior High! This fantastic logo is already in use in our letters and web/social media pages.


Car Wash: August 2020 – Canceled

In light of continued uncertainties regarding the pandemic and how the school opening will unfold this year, we are postponing the Iowa City Music Auxiliary Annual Car Wash, which had been scheduled for August 29th.

Many thanks to all who had signed for this undertaking. Hopefully we’ll be able to proceed later during the school year, once conditions are again safe. Stay Tuned!



Congratulations to our logo contest winner, Angelica Hamilton from South East Junior High!
