Fundraising

The Jefferson Band Booster Club offers two types of fundraising, General Fundraisers and Escrow (Individual) Fundraising Opportunities.  We appreciate all your help with and support of these programs.

JBBC General Fundraising
The Jefferson Band Booster Club has several General Fundraisers which support the operating budget of the booster club and many extra opportunities for our band students. We have General Fundraisers with Shutterfly, our Dining for Dollar's ProgramBandcake Breakfast, the United Way, and some companies will donate to an organization where you volunteer.  Please direct all questions, suggestions, or other thoughts about general fundraising to Heidi Niziolek at heidi.niziolek@yahoo.com.

JBBC Escrow (Individual) Fundraising Opportunities
Please note that all funds earned from a fundraiser for an individual band or flag member are paid into that student's escrow account. Membership in JBBC is required for students to use individual escrow funds for their own benefit. (Click here for JBBC Membership Information.) All escrow accounts are managed by Mrs. Gauper and account balances are updated monthly, if not more frequently. Funds in the escrow accounts can be used to make trip payments, pay for uniform and/or instrument rental fees, or any other "music" related fees. Questions regarding a student's escrow account should be directed to Mrs. Gauper at 952-806-7759 or lgauper@isd271.org.

There will be a designated spot in Mrs. Gauper's office where fundraising related items can be both picked up and dropped off.

Please direct all offers to volunteer or questions, suggestions, or other thoughts about escrow fundraising to Shimin Yang at smyang30@gmail.com or Sonia George at sgeorge01@hotmail.com.

* Type of fundraisers:
 - Escrow/Individual fundraisers pay money into a specific student's escrow account. The amount earned is directly dependent on the sales earned or the amount of work done by the student.
- General fundraisers benefit the band and flag programs as a whole; no individual earns escrow funds at these fundraisers.

** Typically there are no scrips sales in June and July.

Miscellaneous Information about JBBC Escrow (Individual) Fundraising Opportunities:
- Candy bar sales are only done in years that the marching band is traveling.
