ONGOING FUNDRAISING OPPORTUNITIES

We know Band participation can be expensive. Good news is that the Cary Band Ways and Means is focused on providing a number of fundraising programs and opportunities designed to help you pay for your fair share assessment.

Many families never have to pay out of pocket -- they pay their fair share through a combination of fundraising and volunteer opportunities.

Please reach out to ways_and_means@caryband.org if you have any questions.
