Even though school districts do the best they can to fund band programs, sometimes the amount they provide isn’t enough. While sports tend to bring in larger crowds, leading to them getting more of the spending budget, band is actually one of the more expensive after-school programs.
Whereas most sports use their budgets on uniforms and equipment, bands have those expenses alongside all of the instruments they use. That can add up quickly. On top of that, bands go on multiple trips, and this extracurricular activity is one of the few programs that runs all year long.
As you can see, whether it’s marching band, concert band, or orchestra, running one of these programs isn’t cheap. So if you’re in need of a new band fundraising idea, Vertical Raise is here to help. We’ve taken the online crowdfunding concept and brought it to band fundraisers, and it’s been quite effective so far.
Through the use of email, we’ve helped many band programs raise more than enough money to fund their large expenditures. Here at Vertical Raise, we’ve also implemented the use of text messages and social media to extend the reach of our fundraisers.
You might have noticed that we don’t actually sell anything to people through our program. At first, that might seem like it would make it difficult to receive the funds needed to reach your goal, but it actually makes it much easier. Most people would rather just give instead of buying an overpriced item. Plus, this means almost all that money comes straight back to you. Nothing has to go into buying consumer goods.
Another positive to this system is that it frees up your students to do other things. They don’t have to go door-to-door selling or come with Mom or Dad to the office. They just have to send out some emails, and the rest takes care of itself. That means they’ll have more time to practice their instrument, making a band fundraiser in the middle of marching band season a possibility.
If this sounds like something you’d like to try out for your program, you can either sign up with us on our website today or contact us to ask more questions. We’ll be more than happy to answer them for you and go into more detail on how we can help out your band program.
