We provide many opportunities for both student fundraising and general band (corporate) fundraising.
Student fundraisers: Students fundraisers run throughout the year. Money earned will be credited to a member’s account. Students are not required to participate in these fundraisers, but doing so can help with the individual student’s band fees and trip fees.
Band Corporate fundraisers: These fundraisers are held in the fall and spring time. Students are encouraged to provide items to put in different section baskets for the silent auction, attend spirit nights with friends and families, or attend fundraising events. The money raised goes into the general band fund.
Concessions: A major portion of the band revenues come from operating concession stands at Gus and Farris Stadiums as well as different sport venues throughout the district. All NISD high school band and athletic parent groups are required to operate concession stands. These dates are assigned by NISD. Other events where concession stands are operated include basketball, soccer, baseball and special events. Students (and Parents) are required to sign up for two opportunities to help with concession duty through charms.
