Fundraising

The Falcon Bands are reliant on the generous donations and assistance provided by our parents and families. The fundraising efforts for the Falcon Bands are directed through the Band Boosters. Here are a list of some of the various fundraising efforts for the Falcon Bands.


Noteworthy Donor

Families and businesses that make a monetary donation at one of our NOTE levels will be recognized and thanked in every concert program throughout the school year.


Concert Program Advertising

We are now soliciting advertisers for ads to be placed in all the CFHS concert programs and band newsletters throughout the school year (more than 10 per year!) throughout the school year. The ads are very reasonably priced and proceeds will benefit all our students in the band program. Submit by September 15, 2021 to guarantee inclusion in the first concert program of the year.


Grocery Cards

Here’s a simple way to help CFHS Band Boosters while buying groceries, at Basha’s, AJ’s or Fry’s supermarkets. To get your grocery card, send your request to cfhsbandboosters@gmail.com

• Use them as you would cash and a percent of what you spend will be donated to our band.
• Basha’s grocery cards also work at AJ’s and Food City.
• Basha’s cards are rechargeable so you only have to purchase them one time. The cards come preloaded with the amount of the cost.

Plus, each time you purchase or recharge gift cards, your designated band student earns $$$ in their student account.  

Another Grocery Card is the Fry’s Rewards Card. Search for Catalina Foothills High School Band Boosters (or enter our organization number 84963) to link your card to the Band Program. Frys cards must be re-enrolled each year in August.


AZ Tax Credit

Every Arizona taxpayer has the opportunity to take advantage of a Public School Tax Credit by giving up to $200 ($400 for a married couple) to the CFHS Band program to help pay for music, instruments, sound equipment, and much more. Giving is easy and can be done on-line at the CFSD Tax Credit Webpage.


Butterbraid Sales

In the Fall we hold a butterbraid sale. Families can pre-order frozen butterbraids and pick them up at CFHS. All the profits that each student sells are deposited into their personal band account.


Arizona Gives Day

The Catalina Foothills Falcon Band participates in Arizona Gives Day on April 1 each year. This is an opportunity for parents and extended family members to donate directly to the band.


Sweatshirts and Show Shirts

Throughout the year, there are opportunities for students and family members to purchase shirts in support of the Falcon Bands. These items are sold through the Band Square Store.


Band Booster Yard Sale

Raise money for your family, athletic team or other organization and help Band Boosters at the same time – buy selling-space at the annual Band Booster Yard Sale! Selling spots are $25 each, and you keep all the money you raise. Watch for details on the next sale which is usually held in mid-April.


Jim Click Raffle

The CFHS Band Boosters participate in the Tucson-wide Jim Click Raffle. More information on the raffle and raffle prizes is available at millionsfortucson.org. Tickets to the raffle are sold in the name of the Falcon Bands. Tickets cost $25 each, or 5 for $100. The prize for the 2021 raffle is a 2021 Ford Bronco Sport and all tickets need to be received by Dec 10th for the Dec 17 raffle.


THANK YOU FOR YOUR DONATIONS! Not everyone has time to commit to a good cause like Band Boosters. If you can’t give time, donating is a great way to help.
