Whole Band Fundraisers
Participation in WHOLE BAND FUNDRAISERS is expected of all students participating in the Plano East Band. These fundraisers help offset the cost of running the band--the daily operational expenses that are not covered by District funding.
PLAN ONE: FUNDRAISING BUYOUT
If fundraising is not a strength or interest for your family, you can participate in the FUNDRAISING BUYOUT for $150. Your $150 buyout results in no obligation to participate in any of our traditional fund raisers. Your $150 buyout is a tax-deductible donation to the Plano East Band.
Click on Fundraising Buyout to make your $150 payment.
PLAN TWO: PARTICIPATE IN THREE SELLING FUNDRAISERS
Band students who choose not to participate in the Fundraising Buyout must participate in three of the different on-going “selling” fundraisers. There will be numerous fundraisers to choose from, starting as early as this summer with cookie dough sales, passbook sales, and customized cup sales. Please note there is a need to sell $100 worth of inventory in each, because we traditionally get no more that 40% of profit.
Both plans will result in the Band receiving the same amount of $$. This will be placed in the Band’s operational funds.
Butter Braid Fundraiser!!
Participate in the Butter Braid Fundraiser between now and March 27. The items will arrive just in time for Easter!
Ongoing Student Fundraisers
SCRIP - Plano East Band Boosters is proud to announce an exciting new fundraiser. Scrip is a fundraiser provided by our band that is offered throughout the school year. The program does not require students to sell anything. When you purchase gift cards through the Scrip program, your band student earns credits toward their band fee account and the band program earns revenue. You can purchase gift cards for the items that you would normally use, like groceries, household items, electronics, etc. Also included are hotels, rental cars, movie tickets, and MUCH, MUCH MORE!
