Winter Guard Parent Preview

Dear Families,

We hope you can join us for this year’s Winterguard Parent Preview. It’s open to everyone, not just parents, and there’s no admission fee. Please see the attachment for details about our preview and the fundraiser that John and Mr. Stegeman have agreed to participate in -they’ll do anything for these kids!!!

We hope to see you there!

Art in Motion Sponsorship Form

Click the image below to download the Art in Motion Sponsorship Document.
Any family that sells the sponsorship will receive 33% of the amount sold applied to their FFC account.
Example:  Sell a $250 sponsorship and $82.50 goes into their account.
                    Sell a $500 sponsorship and $165 goes into their account.
This is a great way to get a jump start on next year or pay off past due fees.
Thanks!

Fundraising with H&R Block

Hello Band Families,

 
The Band is participating in a Fundraising Program with H&R Block this tax season.  As a Non-Profit group, the Band will receive $20 for each new referral made to H&R Block.  In addition, the Non-Profit group in Missouri that generates the most referrals will receive a check for $10,000!
 
The program runs through April 30th.  Use the Referral code in the attached flyer.  Recruit friends and family out of state to help as well, the code will work in any Block office anywhere in the United States.  To be a new client, the customer only has to have not prepared their taxes in a Block office last year.  They could be a prior online or software customer that now wants to work with a tax pro, or someone who used Block a few years ago and would like to come back. 
Contact me with any questions!
Emily Weaver
Fundraising Chair
