6th/7th/8th Grade Fund Raiser Opt Out Donation - $100.00
As requested by parents, this is an optional donation that can be paid instead of your child participating in band fundraising. The band keeps 100% of this donation to use for the students rather than only about 40% that the band realizes from each dollar paid for fundraiser items. This is a great deal for parents since the opt out is all tax deductible as long as you write “donation” in the memo field of your check.
