SNAP! RAISE 2019 – Our FALL FUNDRAISER
(In place of cheese and sausage)
Here are the INSTRUCTIONS for creating/logging into your Snap! Raise account. Please do not create another account if you already have one.
We are off to a great start! We currently have more than $18,000! We are well on our way to meeting our goal!!! This is after only a little over a week of the site being active. There have been many questions since we launched. Here are my most frequent answers:
–Can I donate in a check form instead of online? I have relatives that want to donate but don’t have PayPal? Yes, place the donation in the black box on the wall in the band room with your child’s name in the memo line or have them mail it to:
Lafayette Band Association
PO Box 910450
Lexington, KY 40591-0450
**Please make all checks out to LBA. Checks donated like this WILL NOT go through the Snap! Raise system, so they will not be counted by Snap! Raise toward your child’s participation. If your child gets 1 donation of $20 or more in the Snap! Raise system then they are counted as participating. The higher participation our kids have with Snap! Raise, the more money we get to keep. We keep 70% if our participation is below 70%. If our participation is above 70%, then we will keep 77% of all donations.
-How do I opt out of this fundraiser? If we opt out does it count against participation? Easy- send in a check made out to LBA for our suggested donation amount of $75. It can be placed in the black box in the band room with your child’s name in the memo line. If you opt out, your child will get full credit for both the Week 1 and Week 2 incentives. We will not count your child in the number of participants if you opt out, so they will not negatively impact our goal to get 77% of the proceeds back. Please send in your check, or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are planning to OPT OUT ASAP. I have been asked for the OPT OUT numbers and need to turn them in this week.
-Can I still put in emails? What if we don’t have all 20 emails? Yes, you can still enter emails into the system. Every email counts. Have your child do the best they can. Click this link to get INSTRUCTIONS on how to add emails.
-What are the PRIZES for Snap! Raise:
WEEK 1: After week one, the Section with the highest percentage of participation will receive the highly coveted “Time in the Tower” during band rehearsal. The Section Prize will be awarded to the Section who has the most students who put in 20 or more valid emails. If paying the Opt-Out donation**, you will be credited for 100% participation.
WEEK 2: After week two, if you qualify as an individual you can enjoy a popsicle while watching the other kids run during the running portion of warm-ups. To qualify you need to have at least 3 donations OR choose to opt out OR raise more than $150 for Snap! Raise. If you qualify, you will get to rest comfortably by the blue building as the rest of the band or Colorguard run during warm-ups at a specified practice. For Pit members, we will make sure that this is a day that Pit is running during warm ups.
WEEK 3: We are working on adding an incentive for the Section or top 2 Sections with the highest total dollar amount donated. We are accepting ideas for this incentive idea. Please email email@example.com with any ideas.
INDIVIDUAL PRIZES: The top dollar amount recipient will receive $50 cash, 2nd place will receive $25 cash, and 3rd place will receive $15 cash.
