Personal Fundraising

Raise Funds for Your Student’s Account

Participating in extracurricular band activities can get expensive, so the Band Boosters are pleased to provide parents and students with opportunities to make money to apply to band accounts. Below, you will find listed a variety of personal fundraising opportunities, along with details about how you can take advantage of them. If you have any questions about a specific fundraising opportunity, please contact the committee chair, as listed on our Band Booster page.

Connor Prairie

This is a great way to earn money for your marchers account. Check availability for specific dates directly with Don Wilderson direct at wilderson@connerprairie.org if you want to sign up to work. Volunteers must be 15 years or older and earn $6.50 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 16 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 15 years old in order to volunteer.  There are sometimes positions that require a liquor license, but most of the time that is not the case.

SCRIP

What is SCRIP?

SCRIP is a way for you to raise money for your child’s band account by shopping, eating, purchasing gas or going to the movies, etc. You buy gift cards for various places and you get back a percentage directly into your student’s account. Learn about the program at www.shopwithscrip.com

How to participate:

Each person participating in SCRIP needs to have a completed enrollment form on file with the SCRIP Committee Chairperson. To get started with SCRIP, simply complete the online enrollment form. Once the form has been received we will email the enrollment code that you will use to create your SCRIP account.

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.
