The Central Dauphin High School Band Boosters Association hosts numerous activities including large events, as well as various programs and product sales, with all serving as fundraisers. While we are most appreciative of the monies received from the CD School District budget each year, those funds serve as only about 10% of monies needed to run this incredibly robust and successful Band Program. The other 90% comes directly from the CD Band Boosters fundraising activities.
We fundraise in generally TWO WAYS. One is year-round and product sales fundraising - those programs in which profit monies are split between YOUR STUDENT ACCOUNT, and the Boosters General Fund. The second is monies profited at special Events from which all goes into our Boosters General Fund.
Read below and PLAY YOUR PART in helping ensure the success of the Band Program.
We have three year-round fundraising programs for you. They are the Shop with Scrip Program, the HERCO Volunteering Program, and the Business Sponsorship Program. Read below and contact the coordinator for more information, and to sign up to play your part.
SHOP WITH SCRIP
Shop with Scrip, called SCRIP, is a no-selling program that allows families to raise money for the Band Program's General Fund AND for your student’s personal account. SCRIP can be used to pay for everyday purchases, using gift cards in place of cash, checks, and credit cards, while benefiting the band programs. Have a mobile device? You can use that, too! It’s really that simple!
SCRIP is a great way to raise funds without selling anything! Click below to go to the SCRIP page for information, to sign up, and contact our coordinator.
Volunteer to work at a HERCO facility (Hersheypark, GIANT Center, or Hersheypark Stadium) and they donate your entire wages to the Band Boosters program account.
The Boosters will then credit a percentage of those earnings to your Student Account!
