Contribution Envelope

Raising money to support the band and guard is an unfortunate necessity,  Because the board takes this very seriously, we ask that you always attach the following to any contribution you make to the band.  This will enable us to insure that there is never any question about the purpose of the contribution, or the student who should receive credit for the contribution.

While the band and guard’s financial needs always eclipse the available funds, we cannot accept any contribution with out the attached form.

Student Sponsership Letter

An important ingredient band fundraising is donations from your extended family.  Grandparents, aunts and uncles and family friends are eager to support their favorite band student, but sometimes they need a reminder.  This example letter can help you get started.

When you use this letter, please make sure that you (the band student) put your name at the top and bottom of the letter.  There’s nothing worse than getting a fundraising letter from a student who didn’t even bother to put their name on it.  I wouldn’t send any support in response to a letter from Student Name, so don’t make that mistake.

And take a little time to edit the letter so it fits the family member you’re sending it to.  If it is addressed to Grandma and Grandpa, make sure to include the appropriate salutation.  And you probably don’t need to tell Grandma and Grandpa your name – I’ll bet they know it very well.  Edit the letter so it makes sense to the family member who will receive it.

Finally, add personal touches.  Include a handwritten note at the bottom, and maybe a photograph.  Give them a personal taste of what makes band so great, and they’ll be happy to support you.

Any monies raised from the student support letter will be put toward your (the band student) fair share.

Solare Energy Fundraiser

If you’re interested in investing in residential solar power for your home, Solare Energy has a program that can benefit you and the Band.

They are offering a special promotion for referrals from the band and will make a significant payment to the band for every photo-voltaic system they install as a result of the referral.

This is a win-win-win scenario, so if you are interested in residential solar, give them a call.  See the attached document for all the details.
