School Music Booster Programs to Benefit with Free AMP Group Membership

Custom Fundraising Solutions (CFS) NW Indiana, has become a corporate partner with The National Association of Music Parents, announced L. Scott McCormick, founder and president of AMP, a nonprofit organization of and for middle and high school band, choir and orchestra parents and booster organizations; music educators; school districts; music industry leaders; arts advocates and professional performing arts organizations and venues.

Highlighting the partnership will be CFS offering free AMP Group Memberships to the first 25 boosters organizations to sign up for a new fundraising program. Additionally, CFS will offer existing fundraising customers a first-year AMP group membership at a significantly discounted price.

“We applaud Custom Fundraising Solutions for its creative program to support music booster programs, particularly those who belong to the Association of Music Parents,” said McCormick. “Having been a part of a booster program who utilized this fundraiser this past year, I can say it was one of the easiest fundraisers we have done to date and provided a very respectable return. Personally we purchased a new mattress from the fundraiser and have been extremely pleased with the purchase. We deeply value this new relationship and look forward to advancing music in our schools together.”

Blake Lynch, principal of CFS NW Indiana echoed McCormick’s enthusiasm: “We at CFS are excited to join forces with AMP, another organization that recognizes and values helping music programs get their parents/boosters more involved. Together, we look forward to helping parents and teachers understand how fundraising events like ours can make the students experience a better one by letting them focus on the music instead of fundraising. By providing this uniquely creative fundraising program we can do the bulk of the work to help raise the dollars needed to support their programs.”

In 2005, Custom Fundraising Solutions was born out of the idea to help kids raise money with a unique approach that had never been used in the fundraising industry. The concept, the “Mattress Fundraiser,” quickly gained acceptance in northeastern United States, and grew to be a national fundraising powerhouse. CFS is now in more than 50 locations across the nation, and has given back over $15 million to the communities that have participated.
