  Connor Prairie

This is a great way to earn money for your marchers account. Check availability for specific dates directly with our liaison at conner.prairie.team@fishersband.org if you want to sign up to work. Volunteers must be 14 years or older. Adults will earn $12.00 per hour and Students will earn $10.00 per hour  (with 10% going to the general fund). Conner Prairie accounting cuts checks twice a month. Make sure that you always sign in and out for your shift, so that our treasurer can credit your student account correctly! Boosters can volunteer with or without their student, but if your band student volunteers as well, they must be 14 years old.

There will be a volunteer sign in /sign out clip board.  Please sign in and ensure your student’s name is listed also so that the correct account is credited.

Remember Volunteers need to be at least 14 years old in order to volunteer.  There are sometimes positions that require a liquor license and 21 years of age, but most of the time that is not the case.

UNIFIED Boosters (Central Indiana Kids, Inc)

UNIFIED Boosters is a non-profit organization dedicated to helping children to be able to participate in extra-curricular activities.  We help parents or other interested individuals raise the funds needed for the children to participate in these activities.  We do this by providing staffing for events (eg. concerts, sporting events).  Who are these staffers?  YOU ARE.  The money you earn is TAX FREE. You can sign up to work as many or as few events as you like. This money that is earned can be used to reimburse you for the expenses incurred and associated with your child’s activity (i.e. uniforms, equipment costs, gasoline for travel, hotel and food bills for travel).                  https://www.unifiedboosters.org                                                          “Please note, the Fishers Band Boosters and Fishers Band Programs are not involved in nor coordinate activities, share information on behalf of, etc. with (name of organization).  Any work you do and payment you receive is done directly through (name of company).

Trash Bags

This is an ongoing fundraiser.  Rolls come in 5 different styles (see attached form) and are $11 per roll.  Of that, $3 from each roll is credited DIRECTLY into your student’s account and $1.50 goes to the general fund.  There is plenty of inventory to handle most orders.  Simply call, text, or email what you need, and delivery can usually be arranged within a day or two.  Checks to “FHS BANDS”.  Please do not drop off orders and checks in the band room box without letting Matt and Sara know.  The sky is the limit as to who you can sell these to businesses, family, churches, etc.
