FanAngel Fundraiser

We have LAUNCHED our fundraiser! This means you can share your child's profile on social media as well as any preloaded emails were sent out. It's not too late to enter contact info for potential supporters. Thank you so much for helping support our program!


We would like all students to participate, and our hope is that each student is able to raise $125. If you would like to opt out by making a donation of $125 payments can be made via Charms using the ¨Shopping Cart¨ icon, or by sending a check made out to Scoggins MS Band Booster Club.

Things parents should know about our fundraiser on FanAngel:

  1. FanAngel uses the industry's most secure privacy and protection standards. Email addresses and phone numbers are never shared or sold.
  2. FanAngel’s automation system will send supporters up to three reminders after launch: one after 3 days, one after 10 days, and lastly 4 days prior to the end of the campaign. When the supporter has donated, they will not receive additional reminders. Please know that the supporter has the ability to unsubscribe at any time.

Covid Positive or Quarantine?

If your child has to stay home due to being Covid positive or is quarantining we want to make band as little stress as possible. Please use the guidelines below to help your child feel at ease with expectations:

Feeling Ill: Your child does not need to practice or worry about what is going on in band. We will catch them up once they return.

Quarantine or Asymptomatic: Google Meet links will be posted in Canvas for your student to join if they are feeling well enough to participate.
