So our high school band is in a unique situation. We've had a tremendous growth spurt, like nearly double!

 Of course, that also means we need to raise more money in order to keep it going, and given our small school stature, that's a lot of work. Just curious about what works and what doesn't.

What program is this? I’d love to donate and help out!

Our school used something called SnapRaise, that really seemed to work well and raise good money.

The Dominos, Dairy Queen, Sonic in our town have all helped to raise funds for the band.  Not sure what

the county seat of Metcalfe County is or if those restaurants exist there...

Kroger Community Rewards has been a large fundraiser for us ($10,000+).   I don't know if you have one nearby or not... but worth checking on.  We have hosted restaurant nights, had food trucks come to the parent performance, served food at a local festival, sold Krispy Kreme Donuts (about $3500), Snap Raise (over $10,000), asking local businesses to sponsor the band in exchange for their logo placed on the back of the T-shirts worn under the uniforms/on trailers/etc

Sell band cards........Solicit local businesses/restaurants to participate in a band card program to give discounts to customers who purchase a band card from the band.  Band cards would have a listing on the back showing all the merchants and their respective discounts. Pure profit for the band with the exception of the small fee to have the cards made/printed.

We always sold the Little Caesars pizza kits, those always did well for us when I was in high school. I think we sold the scented pencils that are made from recycled paper as well. And never be afraid to go to local businesses for support. http://www.mrbumblebee.com/index.html was who we did a lot of our fundraising through and usually worked out pretty well.
