What are some ways to fundraise for a community band?

Our band is receiving monies from the town for music and Director stipend only.

However, there is much needed funds for auxiliary percussion equipment (we only have drum set), website, new music stands, uniform shirts and other items.

What ways are there to fundraise? Can a scout troop do fundraisers?

We are under our Town and do not have 501c3 status. Can this hinder us as well? Thank you!!

    There are many 'Fundraising' events to do ;-

    Sponsored fun run.

    Home bake sale.

    Scouts in our town, help out in the supermarkets, by packing customers shopping e.t.c. they have collecting 'buckets' at the checkouts, the customers are usually very generous!

    Setup a 501c3...Friends of the Town Band....

    Its not super difficult...any band members have a parent who can help set this up?  

    Yes, not having a charitable arm of the organization will absolutely hurt your ability to fundraise.

    Play at events where the sponsors will make a donation.
