Help the band earn Booster Bucks with Rockford Cash

RCC Booster Bucks banner

Rockford Cash is a gift certificate you purchase online though the Rockford Chamber of Commerce. You can print it off or email it to a friend. It’s that easy!

Rockford Cash is redeemable at one of the many participating local businesses in the greater Rockford area (with more businesses being added each week). Since each certificate can only be used at one merchant, they offer different denominations to fit your needs.

Fill out the form below or visit the Rockford Cash web page. Be sure to choose Rockford Band Parents as your organization so we receive the 3% cash back in Booster Bucks!
