Fundraising for Other Families
The Rosemount High School Marching Band started their program in 2012 to help families lower marching band fees and travel costs. Maria, whose daughter was in the band, has gone above and beyond with her gift card fundraising. After successfully raising money for her daughter to perform in the 2013 Rose Bowl Parade, Maria shared the rest of her earnings with three other students so they could also attend.
“I plan on using gift card fundraising for many years. I use this program because it is super easy to pay it forward. I enjoy helping others with this fundraiser and I am proud to be a part of it.”
–Maria, band supporter
Although her daughter graduated in 2016, Maria continues to use the program and directs her earnings to other marching band families. Last year, she raised $800 to help another family pay for band fees and the band trip to the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade. She is always keeping an eye out for more families she can help simply by purchasing gift cards for her everyday shopping.
