Fall Fundraiser

Fall Music Department Fundraiser 

All information applies to the past 2015 fundraiser - the 2016 fundraiser details will be changed in November

Funds you raise with this program will be applied to: 

  • The cost of your own Cedar Point trip this spring including the music student and any chaperones.
  •  Fees for Solo and Ensemble Festival (band or chorus)
  • Consumable music supplies purchased from Mrs. Farmer (eg: clarinet or sax reeds).
 Any funds you raise beyond what is used for the above will be kept in the band or choir account and used for the group.
 
The profit percentage for this fundraiser is 40%.  If you sell $100 worth of merchandise, you will raise $40 profit.  To pay for your Cedar Point trip (which will cost $70 per student), fundraise a total of about $190 in gross sales.

TIPS

 

  • Sell to people you know, people you trust, and people who have money.
  • Door-to-door sales are often not the best way - people aren't likely to give you money if they don't know you.  Above all, be safe, especially if you have money from orders.
  • Organize your money as you collect it by cash denomination (20s, 10s, 5s, 1s) and oriented the same way.

Good Luck!
