There are opportunities throughout the year to support the band through fundraisers. Our biggest fundraiser is Bandfest in the Fall. Several fundraisers allow students to receive funds to pay their Fairshare amount or help with trip expenses. The following are on-going fundraisers that you can participate in:
Shop with Scrip
The Basics of a Scrip Program
- Buy retail gift cards at face value on the → Shop With Scrip website
Choose from nearly 400 national retail stores.
- The Band Parent Association buys the gift cards at 1-13% less than face value (varies by retailer).
- The difference between face value and what your organization pays = your organization’s earnings.
Our Family Enrollment Code is: 686B534345265
