The Jupiter High School Band Program offers several fundraisers throughout the year through which students can earn money for their fundraising accounts. Proceeds from some fundraisers go toward student fundraising accounts, and other proceeds are allocated for the general band budget.
ALL fundraiser information, instructions and deadlines are announced via email. Be sure to check your email frequently, as not all of our fundraisers are listed below. Communicate with the appropriate fundraising chairperson as listed in the emails.
We are in need of a Fundraising Chair or Co-chairs! If you’d like to help, please contact Susan Taylor at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Contact information for individual fundraisers is located on our Parent Organization page.

Shop With Scrip Gift Cards
The Shop WIth Scrip Gift Card program is a great way to raise money for band.

Some members of band have raised 100% of their band fees through buying gift cards for purchases they would be making anyway.
Proceeds go towards the student’s fundraising account in varying profit percentages based on the retail store as determined by Scrip With Scrip. Orders are turned in 2-3 times during the year, and deadlines will be announced via email.
Scrip order forms can be dropped in the “Scrip Box” in the band room adjacent to the band director’s office. Orders should be paid by check only – no cash, please.

Band supporters may buy a plaque to be placed on the back of a seat in the school’s auditorium.

This is an ongoing fundraiser; auditorium seats can be purchased anytime during the year.

Spring Training Concessions at Roger Dean Stadium (March)
Each spring break, band students and parents work several days at Roger Dean Stadium in their concession stands during Major League Baseball Spring Training. Workers are required to attend a mandatory training session (several dates are offered) and sign a contract.

Workers must be age 16 or older.
Proceeds are divided into an hourly wage that go towards the student’s fundraising account based on the number of hours worked.
Fundraisers for the General Band Account
Dine for Cash
Throughout the year, the band will partner with various local restaurants, and those restaurants will donate a portion of the sales on specified days back to the band.
Often, flyers must be presented at check out in order for proceeds to be allocated for the band. When this is the case, the flyers will be emailed and also made available on Charms (in the Handouts folder) and on this web site on the Forms page.

At all home football games, Jupiter Band handles the concession sales. Profits from the concession stand benefit the general band fund. The band relies on many parents to help run the concession stand on Friday night home games.
Jupiter Festival of Bands (October)
The Florida Marching Band Coalition is the competitive marching band circuit in which the JHS Band competes. We are excited to host a regional competition annually at Jupiter High School. We need donations from the community in order to increase our profit margin for concession sales. This event also requires a lot of parent assistance in planning and volunteering the day of the event.
SFWGA Color Guard Event (January or April)
The South Florida Winter Guard Association is one of the largest winter guard circuits in the world. We are very pleased to have hosted contests the past few years. We make the majority of our profit through concessions, and we attempt to run the show through the use of donations from the community so that we may have the greatest profit margin. Donations can be anything such as monetary donations, supplies, food, or drinks. We also need a lot of volunteers for this event!
On occasion, the band will hold additional fundraisers such as sales of coupon books, candy sales, car washes, yard sales South Florida Fair discount tickets, and more. Parents and students will receive emails detailing all fundraising opportunities.
