Student Account Fundraisers
FMA provides fundraising opportunities for students who wish to offset the cost of optional music department-sponsored trips and other FMA-approved activities. All proceeds earned by the student are deposited into their FMA student account and can be applied (per FMA Standing Rules) to their trip expenses or for other FMA-approved activities. Fundraisers vary each year depending on the availability of parent volunteer organizers. Currently planned for 2016-17:
Manna gift card program
Overall Chair/Choir Distribution: Sue Lech
Band Distribution: Lisa Fralish
Orchestra Distribution: Parent Coordinator needed! Contact firstname.lastname@example.org
Gift cards to many of your favorite retailers – purchase for your own use or give them as gifts. A percentage of each card’s price gets credited to the student account (varies by retailer). Orders are processed and delivered weekly, available year round.
