Fundraising allows us to have a full and rich band experience for all the musicians in the Union Band program. This includes music, sessions with instrument specialists, team building for students, repairs on school-owned instruments, and more.
Our main fundraiser this year will be Fundraise Genius. It allows for easy, direct donations from family and friends without the hassle of in-person selling, or feeling the obligation to buy something. Information coming at the start of the school year.
The first $100 (or $50 for returning students) goes towards the student’s uniform fee.
The next $100 goes to the student’s required fundraising contribution.
Additional funds go towards the whole band program goal of $25,000. And once that is met, profits from future fundraisers will be credited to the individual student’s account to cover fees for trips, honor band or as credit towards next year’s fees.
To bypass participating in fundraisers, a check can be made to Union Band Booster Association for the full $200 (or $150 for returning students.) Checks can be dropped in the black lock box labeled Band, in the band room. Please mark student’s name on the check.
February – Coffee, Tea, See’s Candies
For each student to get credit for their candy sales, Jessica needs to add them into See’s system. If your student is interested in selling See’s Candy for this fundraiser, please email UHS.BandBoosters2@gmail.com the student’s name and email address. After the student is entered into the system, they should receive an email with an order link that will show them as the seller. They can send this link to family and friends.
Sorry for the confusion – feel free to email Jessica if you have any questions.
GIVING BEAN COFFEE

If you are interested in participating in this event, you will need to sign up here, https://www.givingbean.com/listbuilder/?partnerid=62a9a for a seller ID#.
