How Your Child Earns and Uses Fundraising Dollars

  

Individual student accounts are set up for every student in the Marching Band, Color Guard, and Show Choir.  These accounts are kept confidential between the parent, student, the Band Director and the Band Booster Treasurer.

Fundraising dollars are used solely for the purpose of helping to defray, or pay in entirety, the cost of the Music Department Trip.

Students will have the opportunity to participate in many fundraising events throughout the school year.  It is not mandatory that students participate, but it is encouraged.

A portion of the money collected from each fundraiser goes directly into the accounts of students who have participated in a particular fundraiser.  Some fundraisers allow more dollars per item ratio then others.

It is possible that a student can raise enough money through the fundraisers offered to cover the cost of their entire trip.  It has been done several times in the past.

In the event that a student has participated in fundraising events, and for any reason does not attend the Music Department Trip, the dollars raised by that student cannot be collected by that student or deposited into a sibling or friendís account.  The dollars raised by this student will be deposited into the Band Boosters General Fund to be used at the discretion of the Band Boosters. 

In the event that a student has raised more dollars than would be needed to cover the cost of the Music Department Trip, that student cannot collect the remaining dollars nor can the excess dollars be deposited into a sibling or friendís account.  The excess dollars will be deposited into the Band Boosters General Fund to be used at the discretion of the Band Boosters.
