Unfortunately, high school music programs across the country have seen a dramatic cut in funding in the past decade. As a result, the cost of participating in the band program continues to climb, especially when competing at the highest levels. Chattahoochee High School provides numerous opportunities to offset these costs through industrious fundraising activities. Band members can directly lower the cost of participating in the band program through programs like ShopWithScrip.com, working at the Verizon Amphitheater , CHS Concessions Stand, and various other fundraisers offered throughout the year.
Shop with Scrip
Scrip is a service the sells gift cards (digital and physical) for a large variety of retailers. When you buy a gift card from Scrip a percentage of the amount you spend is redirected back to the band and your fees are reduced. Each retailer offers a different percentage rate.

CHS Spring 2018 Concessions
The Chattahoochee Soccer, Lacrosse and Track Season has arrived. Chattahoochee High School Music Association (CHSMA) operates the concession stand as a fundraiser for Band, Orchestra, and Chorus. Working the concession stand is a great way to offset the cost of your child’s participation in band.

Verizon Wireless Amphitheater Concession Stand
Chattahoochee Marching Band is in charge of the large concession stand on the East side of the stage during concerts. We typically need 25 workers for each show, 13 adults and 12 students. Pay is sales commissions divided by the hour per worker and is credited to your student’s band account. This is the highest paid fundraising activity and can significantly reduce your band fees especially if you have parents and students volunteering. It is work, but it is fun.
