Fundraising

Participation in fundraising by all band families is critical to the mission of the band program. Several fundraising opportunities are available to families each year to help contribute to the band program's general operating account and build credits towards the Fair Share assessment.

Here are a few simple ways to contribute:

  • Cario Bands Together For Kids - Our annual letter writing campaign inviting friends and family to contribute to the Cario Bands program. Download the letter and address  forms to reach out to your family and friends.
  • Harris Teeter TIE Program - Link your VIC card by August of each year to the Cario Bands TIE account (8445). This can be done at the stores' registers or online at http://www.harristeeter.com/community/together_in_education/link_to_your_school.aspx
  • Matching Contributions - Check with your company to see if they have a matching contribution program. Cario Bands is a 501c3 tax-exempt organization.
  • Save-Around Enjoy the City Coupon Books and Holiday Pies – These options will help your student earn credit towards their FSA and trips.

We hope that each member of the band will see the importance of keeping our band program strong through fundraising. There are many ways to help the band raise money, whether it be sales, volunteering with concessions, collecting BoxTops, or volunteering to help the fundraising committee. Any way you can or want to help is greatly appreciated and will help your band achieve its goals. We also welcome any new fundraising ideas from both students and parents. Please contact the fundraisers at fundraising@cariobands.org if you have ideas or would like to volunteer. Thank you for your support!
