Fundraising

Fundraising for the Fremd Music Program falls into one of 3 categories:

FMA Student Accounts

The FMA provides fundraising opportunities for students who wish to offset the cost of optional music department-sponsored trips and other FMA-approved activities (per FMA Standing Rules).  All proceeds earned by the students are deposited into their FMA student account, and students may add to their account the entire time they are enrolled at Fremd.

Currently planned for 2021-22:

Cookie Dough and Lou Malnati’s Coupon Sale

Department-specific

These events benefit one or more of the departments in the Music Program. Examples include:

  • Band Benefit: held in the spring semester, this raises funds for all 4 curricular bands, the jazz bands and the Viking Marching Band. It features band performances, a catered dinner and silent auction.
  • VMB March-a-Thon: held in the summer prior to Viking Marching Band (VMB) camp.
  • Dine and Share Nights: held on an ad hoc basis throughout the school year.
