Putting the Fun in Fundraising for ZBB
A few facts on fundraising:
Program fees cover 50 % of the Zionsville Band Booster Budget
ZCHS contributes in-kind support (e.g. buses, facility usage)
The remaining 50 % of funding for the program comes from fundraising
Fundraising benefits band participants in two ways:
Directly by returning money to student accounts to offset fees (e.g. SCRIP)
Indirectly by covering a portion of the total ZBB budget and avoiding higher fees.
How can I earn money for my student account to use toward the program fees?
Sign up for and use SCRIP (a % of each purchase goes back to student accounts)
Sell IndyBooks ($10 goes back to students for each coupon book sold)
Sell Butter Braids ($5 goes back to the student account for each one sold)
PAC concession volunteering ($5/hr goes back to the student account)
There may be additional opportunities as we ramp up fundraising efforts
How can I help ZBB fundraising?

- Purchase an advertisement to be placed in the invitational program or recommend a business to contact.
Attend band fundraising functions (e.g. chili supper, invitationals, see a calendar of events for more info)

- If you are interested in helping organize an event, let us know.
- If you are not the organizing type, but willing to pitch in a small amount of time, let us know.
- If you would rather donate money than time, every little bit helps.
