There are lots of opportunities here in the Magee Music Department for finding ways to help yourself to earn money for trips and other events within the music department. There are two types of fundraising that we do here at Magee Music, the large format fundraising, such as the paper shredding fundraisers and the Magee Market Fair, and proceeds from those go to the Music Society who helps out the department by paying for things like clinicians to work with your children or for new instruments or financial aid for students for trips. The other kind of fundraising is individual, such as poinsettia sales and Purdy’s chocolate sales – and the profits from those go into individual student accounts called travel credit accounts which students can access for anything within the music department – trips, retreats, festivals, any events within the music department that may require a fee you can use travel credits for. After your grade 12 year, your credits are transferrable to another person in the music department, but they are not cashable and if there is no one to transfer them to, will go into the general music society account which will help students in the music department.
Gift Cards are available all year around and a percentage goes back to travel credits for the students. Just download the form here: gift card order form 2017 after you fill it out, bring it with a cheque made out to Magee Music Society to either Mr. Haas or myself (or you can ask them in the main office to put it into our mailboxes) and we can email you when it is ready for pick up.
