SCRIPT Presentation SCRIP Fundraising Presentation

• The Crystal Lake Community Band currently raises all of its own operating income
• We pay for director fees, space rental (performance and rehearsal), music, equipment, insurance, and student grants.
• We do this through member fees, concert ticket sales, grants, donations and fund raising. Fund raising a is an essential portion of our annual budget!

People in the band are familiar with the Scrip concept because of our previous participation in Manna gift cards.
• Scrip is an easy to use, low cost, and low maintenance way to raise funds.
• Band members are not required to sell anything. Families can help the band raise money by paying for everyday purchases using gift cards in place of cash, checks and credit cards.
• The effort to collect money from the purchase of the cards is minimal, meaning that it is a sustainable source of income.
