Fundraising


Fundraising by the parent committee covers 80% of the squadron's operating budget.  Although there is no up-front cost to join cadets, it is expected that all cadet families actively participate in multiple fundraising events each training year.  The squadron can not be successful without your help.

The following fundraisers are planned for this training year:

Date Fundraiser Details
2019-2020 Registration Sept 04 and 11th

Fundraising covers a significant part of the operational budget for the local cadet squadron.  Things like Hall rental, buses to field trips, office supplies, etc. are all covered by funds raised by your Parent Squadron Sponsoring Committee SSC

This year we require Volunteer Bond Cheques as a way of encouraging increased participation in Fundraising activities.

3 undated cheques of $50 and 1 of $25 are required upon your cadet's enrollment this year. Make cheques out to 287 Beaumont Air Cadets SSC

Please see 287 Parent Committee page for more details

2019 Calendar/ Raffle Sales

All cadet parents are expected to buy or sell 3 calendar/raffle tickets this year.  These calendars are also tickets for a year round Raffle draw.   Please pre-pay when you pick up your calendar.

$20/calendar/raffle ticket  Available Sept 4 and 11th at the Registration tables.  This counts as a volunteer credit

Monthly Oct-June   Canteen Supervision

The cadets run a canteen (selling pop, chips, etc) at each parade night on Wednesdays.  The profits go to the SSC

Approx 7:45-8:30pm Wednesdays at CCBCC

We need parents to supervise the Cadets, help count the money at the end of the night and ensure it gets to the treasurer. A month's worth of supervision would count as a major volunteer activity. 

We also need someone to do the purchasing for the canteen. You would pick up the supplies that the Supply Officer & cadets ask for and would be reimbursed.  The entire year would count for two major volunteer duties.

Please call Jan 780-906-1004 for more details.
