NEW FUND-RAISING GUIDELINES THE RHS BAND BOOSTER CLUB, AT IT’S NOVEMBER MEETING APPROVED NEW GUIDELINES FOR THE DISTRIBUTION OF FUNDS RAISED DURING ALL FUND RAISING EVENTS. ALL BAND MEMBERS WILL BE FACING SOME VERY LARGE FEES NEXT YEAR AND THIS IS OUR WAY OF HELPING THE MEMBERS FAMILIES WHO WORK THE FUND RAISING EVENTS GET CREDIT FOR IT. WE ENCOURAGE ALL MEMBERS FAMILIES TO BE ACTIVE IN ALL EVENTS SO WE CAN HELP EACH OTHER KEEP THE COSTS DOWN FOR ALL OF US! FOR ALL FUNDS RAISED DURING OUR FUND RAISING EVENTS FROM THIS DAY FORWARD WE WILL DISTRIBUTE AS FOLLOWS. 1. 60% OF FUNDS RAISED WILL BE DEPOSITED IN THE GENERAL FUND TO BE USED FOR THE NORMAL EXPENSES APPROVED BY THE BOARD. 2. 40% OF THE FUNDS WILL BE PLACED IN A SPECIAL ACCOUNT TO BE USED BY THE BAND MEMBERS WHO’S FAMILY MEMBERS WORKED THE EVENT. THE FUNDS CAN ONLY BE USED FOR BAND ASSOCIATED FEES AND CAN NOT BE TAKEN OUT AS CASH! ANY FUNDS NOT USED FOR BAND ASSOCIATED FEES BY THE BAND MEMBER WILL BE RETURNED TO THE GENERAL FUND ONCE THE BAND MEMBER LEAVES THE BAND. 3. THE FORMULA FOR DIVIDING THE BAND MEMBERS SHARE IS AS FOLLOWS: 40% TOTAL FUNDS RAISED DIVIDED BY TOTAL HOURS WORKED = PER HOUR AMOUNT EACH MEMBER SHALL BE CREDITED THE PER HOUR AMOUNT TIMES THE TOTAL HOURS WORKED BY THEIR FAMILY MEMBER. EXAMPLE: IF WE RAISED $500 ON DONUT SALES. 40% OR $200 GOES TO THE MEMBER SHARE. IF 20 TOTAL HOURS WERE WORKED BY ALL VOLUNTEERS THEN THE PER HOUR MOUNT WOULD BE $10. EACH MEMBER WHO WORKED OR HAD FAMILY WORK THE EVENT WILL BE CREDITED $10 FOR EVERY HOUR THEY WORKED.

HELP US HELP YOUR BAND MEMBER!! IT’S FREE!! IT IS EASY TO JOIN THE BOOSTER CLUB AND GET IN ON ALL THE FUN. JUST COME TO THE THURSDAY DECEMBER 9TH MEETING IN THE BAND ROOM.
