IMPA Direct Appeal
Dear Instrumental Music Parents,
Hello, and welcome! The Music Parents Association or "IMPA" (Instrumental Music Parents Association) is the Booster organization that is so vital to maintaining a strong instrumental music program.
It supports your child's involvement in:
Marching Band and Color Guard
String Orchestra and Chamber Orchestra
Symphonic Band and Wind Ensemble
Jazz Ensemble and the 501 Lab Band
Winter Percussion and Winter Guard
We count on your support in two ways: (1) we ask that you volunteer time and energy, and (2) we seek your support through our "Direct Appeal" fundraiser to offset the high cost of running these programs. This vital funding source enables our music teachers Jason Kneebone and Anna Linde to offer outstanding opportunities for our children to excel in performance, musicianship, and leadership. Your support goes toward training clinics; allows us to buy, replace, and repair instruments; pays for sheet music and other items necessary for running a quality music program.
IMPA's Direct Appeal is DIFFERENT and separate from the payments you make through the "Charms" system for Music Council (or "Fair Share") funds. The Direct Appeal is a critical funding resource deployed for immediate needs NOT covered by school district funds and Music Council payments. It is the only fundraising campaign the parents association conducts each year, so we depend on your participation in order to plan a great year of music opportunities for every student involved. Please consider making your tax-deductible donation early in the new school year so that we can set our budgets accordingly.
We welcome contributions from the entire MVHS community, and we request a donation of $350 from each family whose students participate in Instrumental Music. Donors who contribute $550 (or more) will receive an all-access family pass to all instrumental concerts at MVHS during the 2019-2020 school year. Contributions of any amount are appreciated and will benefit our student musicians. As we are a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization, your contributions are tax deductible to the extent allowed by law, and may be eligible for corporate matching gifts. Please check to see if your employer provides matching funds or will translate your volunteer hours into a matching gift that reduces your own contribution.
Thank you for helping us build a positive social environment that aids our children's growth and achievement in academics and other school activities. This program is the result of decades of building and nurturing by school teachers, staff and administrators, and parents like you!
