Individual fundraising

​Overall, earned for the benefit of the program, however, it rewards the individual for their work. Each student in the program is assigned a personal finance account. Individual accounts will begin to accumulate money as students and their families participate in various fundraising activities. Any fees left after graduation go back to the general music fund for the benefit of BCHSIMP.

Eligible expenditures from BCHSIMP Bylaw Section III

Expenditures eligible for payment from individual accounts are for those activities, or materials, in which participation is offered by the Bear Creek Instrumental Music Department. Examples of acceptable requests – required uniforms, props and equipment, approved group trips, or any entrance fees for competition. Examples of unacceptable requests – payment of school fines or individual expenses. (Transferring of accounts to unrelated accounts). All requests for disbursement of funds from a student’s account MUST be submitted in writing PRIOR to the expenditure and approved by the board at the subsequent meeting.
