Year Round Fund Raising Opportunities

It's EASY to help the FHS Marching Band Raise Money!
"Fundraisers that won't cost you a thing!"
Band Bucks  |  Amazon's Smile Program  |   Fred Meyer Community Rewards
Band Bucks
What are Band Bucks?
Band Bucks (also called SCRIP) is a gift certificate. It is accepted the same as cash so it should be secured just as you would secure your cash. Parents can purchase band bucks from the band and color guard to be used at any participating FRED MEYER.

How are Band Bucks accepted in the stores?

They are accepted the same as cash with the exception that 95% of the amount of the certificate must go towards store purchases,
How does the FHS Band earn money through the program?
The Ferndale Band/Color Guard will have to purchase minimum amounts of certificates from Fred Meyer at a 5% discount and will then resell them at face value. For example, when you purchase a $50 card, the band will have paid $47.50 for it, therefore earning 5% for the band.
How can this help the Ferndale Band and Color Guard students?

Because the average family spends about $300 per month on groceries, if just the band families used band bucks for their monthly grocery purchases the program could generate approximately $17,000 a year. Of course this number could be much higher if your family, friends, co-workers or neighbors that shop at Fred Meyer also purchased Band Bucks.
 Purchasing your Band Bucks is just a phone call or email away.
  • Email Renetta at renetta_pollock@hotmail.com or call at 371-5483
  • Email - ferndaleband@gmail.com   
 Please remember that these are treated like cash and can not be replaced if lost or stolen.
