Hello Parents,
The Allen Eagle Escadrille will be kicking off our Up Tempo Fundraising campaign! The Allen Band and Colorguard rely on the funds we raise and our many volunteers to hold the events we have through out the year for our band and colorguard members. We cover everything from Registration, Sock Hop, summer band camp, props for our UIL shows, scholarships, clinics with guest instructors, UIL competitions, concerts, and our spring Band Banquet. We also raise funds to defray some of the costs of our band trips. This is a special campaign for a special year where the Allen Eagle Band and Colorguard students will travel to Hawaii on Spring Break 2020, and we need your help.
This is a campaign that allows our students to receive donations from their family and friends.  Your family and friends will receive a tax donation receipt. Anyone who gives $100 or more will receive a special Allen Eagle Escadrille spirit wear shirt to show our appreciation of their support. To assist our fundraising efforts, we are asking you to help your son/daughter obtain permission for and gather 20 email addresses of his/her closest supporters.
Family and friends will then receive an email directing them to the student’s personal web page providing an easy way for them to donate and receive spirit wear. 
Up-Tempo Email Campaign Facts:
1.   Safe and Protected – Up Tempo utilizes a safe and secure online donation system.  All data is private and never redistributed. Personal information displayed is less detailed than what is given on a team online roster or your school’s annual yearbook, with no personal information other than name and optional picture/selfie.  Your contacts are strictly private and protected, never sold or shared and will be deleted after the campaign.  
2.   Online donation system – Up Tempo is an online donation platform inviting potential donors via email and social media to visit the web page where they can easily donate and support your program.  All supporters will receive an emailed receipt for their tax-deductible gift.  Four reminder emails will be sent throughout the campaign with the option to unsubscribe. The campaign only lasts 30 days. 

We are asking you to assist your son/daughter by obtaining permission for and gathering 20 emails of people closest to him/her that may be potential donors.  Your student will need to bring these email addresses saved in "notes" of his/her phone by Friday, July 26th and we will help up load them into the system.  Thank You!
