Fundraising

 

Because the Mayde Creek Ram Band Boosters, Inc. is a 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization, it relies heavily on fundraisers, individual donations and corporate contributions to generate its operating funds.  The organization is run and manned by volunteers; it does not have paid staff.  Our success is dependent upon the combined efforts of our many volunteers.  We have a variety of fundraising programs and hope that every parent/guardian can find one in which to volunteer.  The following sections describe our major projects.

Color Run : This event will be held in  the Spring on the MCHS campus.   This is our biggest fundraiser in terms of effort and financial benefit.  The Color Run is a five-kilometer, untimed event.  At each kilometer mark, Color Runners are doused from head to toe in a different colored powder.  Participants wear white at the starting line and finish the race plastered in color. Once the race is over, the fun continues at the Finish Festival, a larger-than-life party equipped with music, dancing, photo ops, activity booths, vendors, and more massive color throws., which create millions of vivid color combinations.  Trust us, this is the best post-5K party on the planet!

DCI Tour of Champion: This event will be held in during the summer and features 12 Drum Corps performing at Legacy Stadium.  https://www.dci.org/events/2019-tour-of-champions-texas

Fireworks Stand: This event is held twice a year for the 4th of July and for New Years Eve.

Friends of the Band Campaign: The purpose of the Friends of the Band Campaign is to obtain additional financial support of the Mayde Creek High School Ram Band Boosters through financial contributions from businesses, individuals and families.

A campaign letter for donation requests is available for all parents/guardians to send out.  It can be personalized with pictures of your band student.  The boosters will mail it for you or you can mail it yourself.  Feel free to make as many copies as needed to distribute to family members, employers, co-workers, your hair dresser and anyone else you can think of to ask for donations.  All donors will receive a thank you letter and recognition for their contribution.  Contributions are never too small; it all adds up.  Membership in MCHS Ram Band Boosters is automatic and there is no membership fee.  However, we do encourage all parents/guardians to become “contributing” Friends of the Band.

Spirit Items:   The Booster organization offers a variety of “spirit items” for sale.  By purchasing spirit items, supporters are able to “show their support” at games and every band event throughout the year. The profit from these spirit items sales goes into the organization’s operating funds. New Spirit Item form coming soon.

Car Wash: A car wash is being planned for August 18th this year at two locations: Fry Road at Saums and Hwy. 6 in the Bear Creek area. Students will bring home specific details.

Silent Auction (at the Holiday Concert)Do part of your Holiday shopping with the Band Boosters.  A variety of themed baskets, services, memorabilia, and products will be available for bidding.  Most items are donated to the boosters therefore this is a very profitable fundraiser for the organization.

As a member of the Mayde Creek High School Mighty Ram Band Booster organization, we need your help to ensure all fundraisers are successful.  Please join our volunteer pool today!
