Updated donation progress and targets
Updated: Nov 18
In a typical year, Music Boosters pay about $185,000 toward funding the Music Programs. Donations pay for about 50%. Fundraising makes up the difference.
While this year is different than any other, the Music Directors and staff are still working hard to provide the students the specialists they have come to expect, who are geared towards specific instruments and skillsets (voice and colorguard) in our wide sprawling program and offerings.
Thank you to everyone who has made a donation so far. Shown here are the donations made toward the program as of October 31, 2020. As you can see, we are still in need of donations in every area to meet our goals.
No student will be prevented from participating fully in these activities because of their ability or willingness to donate. If you have the means to donate toward the ensembles in which your student participates, we would greatly appreciate the impact your donation would make on our program and so would the students.
We are asking families to please make a pledge in the amount you are willing to commit to either donating or raising in support of the various ensembles of the music program this year. Your pledge allows us to determine what level it will be possible to offer these activities. By submitting the form, you are only pledging.
While we can't place a specific dollar amount on expected donations, we have shared the overall donation goals for each ensemble in the program on our Donate Page.
Note that these overall targets have been adjusted to reflect 2020-2021 expectations for a primarily distance or hybrid learning environment.
Donations can be made at any time and are tax deductible. Please consider donating now toward programs in which your student is currently participating. Details on how to donate are on the Donate Page. Please indicate your student's name and the relevant ensemble(s).
Reminder: Check with your employer for matching donations
Many local employers have programs to match employee donations. The ACHS Music Boosters is a 501(3)(c) nonprofit, and all donations are tax deductible and eligible for matching programs.
