Part of the success of the Kiltie Band is the contribution of the parents by donating their valuable time. We encourage all parents to volunteer for the Kiltie Band for at least one event. All volunteers are trained on their job, and no one is expected to work alone.

Kiltie Band Fundraisers
Every band parent is automatically a member of the Riverview High School Kiltie Band Boosters. This group plays an important part in helping the Kiltie Band program. The Boosters provide support for projects, events, and financial assistance. It also works to promote social and recreational gatherings for members, their families and friends, and for creating a social, cooperative spirit.
We encourage all to participate in the following fundraisers to benefit the Kiltie Band. If you have a question about any of our fundraisers, please do not hesitate to contact our Fundraising Chairperson.

We have teens; therefore, we are big consumers. Now you can earn rebates for your student’s trips and band needs just by the purchases you already make!
We buy items for our school and business needs (Office Depot/Staples), groceries and household needs (Walmart/Target), gift cards for teachers gifts, birthday gifts (Google/Apple), restaurants (Applebee’s/Starbucks), movies, gas stations, retail stores (Bath and Body Works, Kohls), and much more. Before you go out to eat or shop, sign in & purchase these same gift cards from this web site ShopWithScrip.com.
This web site offers over 300 brands that will send you a digital gift card, making it immediately available. Over 100 of them are reloadable!
To start saving, login to your account. Review the list of vendors participating in this program. Place your cursor over the vendor you are interested in to see the rebate percentage and if digital Scrip available immediately or a traditional plastic card. You then earn funds with: 80% of the rebate earned deposited into your student's trip savings account; 20% is contributed to the Kiltie Band.
How does it work? Purchase the Scrip before you shop, a digital it is available on your smart phone. When you check out, present the barcode to the cashier instead of using cash or a credit card at checkout. (My personal very favorite hint -- screenshot and text an ecard to your student or family member!)
We make a group order to buy plastic gift cards twice a year Aug/Sept and April/May. If you prefer to purchase gift cards to mail to friends and family at a later date, you are welcome to.
Why not use Scrip for your vacations? Carnival Cruise Lines, Hotels.com, AirBnB, Disney plus various rental car companies and hotels are just a few of the options available.

The Giving Partner - April 28-29, 2020
The Giving Partner reflects many nonprofits in our community that have made a commitment to transparency by sharing in-depth information about their community impact, leadership and financial history. The Community Foundation of Sarasota County verifies much of the information provided; each nonprofit is required to maintain an updated profile in order to be eligible for funding and other opportunities.
A huge THANK YOU to everyone who donated to the RHS Kiltie Band during the Giving Challenge on April 28-29, 2020. Our Kiltie Band friends and family contributed over $11,500 to our band. A majority of those funds will be matched by The Patterson Foundation, bringing our total to over $20,000!
The funds collected help the Kiltie Band in numerous ways. They include: helping pay the "fair share fee" for students in need, extra instruction for band sections, replacement uniform pieces for our band of over 200 students (each uniform costs over $1,500 to replace), food and beverages for students before special events, and much more!
