SYMP - Spend Your Money Powerfully
Cambridge High School Band is partnering with Spend Your Money Powerfully (SYMP) to build a wider financial support base by enlisting the help of local businesses. Instead of traditional fundraising efforts that rely on the financial support of the band members’ families, we have the opportunity to build a mutually beneficial relationship between these families and the businesses that support the band.
How SYMP Works
Business sponsors make donations to the band, and in turn we are asking band members’ families to direct their ordinary spending to our sponsors. Among our sponsors are restaurants, stores and professional services. When we choose the products and services of our sponsors, they will in turn continue to support our band, thus limiting the future need for fundraising efforts.
