List of Profitable Music Fundraisers During Covid

If your school is looking for music fundraiser ideas, you will certainly be glad you found our website!

Our music fundraisers are simple and free for your school. They can all be adapted to be done virtually even during the Covid pandemic.

First of all, why do music departments need to raise money?

The answer is simple. It’s because school budgets have been cut, leaving the school arts and music programs sitting out in the cold. This leaves it up to the teachers, students and parents to raise money in hopes to make up the difference. So school fundraising is a fact of life for music and arts departments today.

Here is the good news…

Our music fund raiser ideas work for both small and large groups. Whether you have a small musical program in your private school, an entire high school musical program, or local institution to raise cash money for, our programs can make a difference.

For instance, our program has helped raise money for new instruments, and uniforms for musicians, school bands, and singers.

Each of these ideas complement many of the typical band fundraisers as well as any other musical fundraising ideas you may hold at your school.
