While the students and music director provide the talent, there is a great deal of volunteer time and financial resources needed as well.
Did you know the music program receives NO funding from the school district other than the teacher’s salary? The Music Program relies on voluntary* donations, fundraising, and grants to help cover our operating costs. Every donation makes a difference and your support enables our students to further enrich their musical and performance experiences.
To make donating easier we are offering two donation payment options, both with thank you gifts!
You can choose your level of support, plus choose to either make a ONE-TIME donation OR make smaller monthly payments using your credit card! If you would prefer to donate by check, simply download this form.
* The Constitution of the State of California requires that we provide a public education to you free of charge. Your right to a free education is for all school/educational activities, whether curricular or extracurricular, and whether you get a grade for the activity or class. Subject to certain exceptions, your right to a free public education means we cannot require you or your family to purchase materials, supplies, equipment, or uniforms for any school activity, nor can we require you or your family to pay security deposits for access, participation, materials, or requirement. You may be required to attend a fundraising event; however, if you are unable to raise funds for the event, you will not be prevented from participating in an educational activity.
