Help the SCHS Band Raise $15K!

HELP THE SCHS BAND RAISE $15K!

You may recall from our spring concert in the gym that we announced our spring fundraiser. This fundraiser has one goal. We need to raise $15,000.00 to purchase a NEW SOUND SYSTEM for the Stewarts Creek High School Band.
 
Due to Covid, we were unable to host our two marching contests this year and we lost out on a lot of revenue. Therefore we want to raise these funds quickly so that we can have the new sound system in place as the SCHS Band returns to the field in 2021 with a full marching band production under the Friday night lights that will once again get the crowd out of their seats.

 
HOW DO WE DO THIS?
We are partnering with SnapRaise. This is a trusted fundraising platform designed to help programs with online donation campaigns.
 
WHAT DO THE STUDENTS NEED TO DO?
Each band member takes a few minutes to build their profile page with their name and photo. We will do that in class this week. 
 
WHAT DO THE PARENTS NEED TO DO?
Parents - We need you to help the band by providing up to 20 quality email addresses from friends, family members, neighbors, and anyone interested in supporting the band. SNAP! Raise never sells, shares, or spams the email addresses entered in the campaign.
 
Give these emails to your child. If possible shared easily on a phone/tablet/computer so they can quickly be copied and pasted. Emails will be generated from the student page kindly asking their supporters for a donation.
 
Students can also click a button to send a generated text message to contacts asking them to consider making a donation. Parents can also share this campaign on their own social media platforms.
 
HOW LONG WILL THIS CAMPAIGN LAST
Roughly two weeks from launch which will take place next week. This week will be used to build the student pages in class.
 
WHAT CAN WE DO NOW?
You can first watch this VERY SHORT video about how to setup the student profile and reach your supporters. It will explain how EASY this process is.
 
 
Once you've watched the video - you can get a jump start by setting up the student account and profile.
 
 
We need everyone to help us meet this goal. Every little bit helps! The beauty is there is nothing to sell, no going door-to-door, etc. 
 
Please let us know if you have any questions in the meantime!
 
That's all for now!
