Donate to the Music Boosters

Thank you to all who have donated so far!

Welcome, new and returning Oak Crest Middle School Band families, to the 2018-2019 Oak Crest Music Program! Whether your student will be playing an instrument for the very first time, or is already an experienced musician, Oak Crest Music will provide opportunities for your student to nourish his or her love of music. We have a great year planned for our Symphonic Band, Wind Ensemble, and after-school Jazz Band students!

The operating costs for the Music Program this year are estimated at $15,000. The majority of this expense goes to coaches who work with our student musicians to help them develop their skills, as well as for curriculum, sheet music and maintenance/purchase of equipment.

Although we seek additional resources through grant opportunities when available, our band families are the primary source of funding to make the program a success.

Recommended donation for Symphonic Band and Wind Ensemble is $250 per student, and $150 for Jazz Band students.

Families who make a Principal Chair Donation (donations of $350 or more) receive the following:

*Front row parking for one(1) vehicle Winter or Spring Concerts
*Front row seating for four(4) at Winter and Spring Concerts

Remember, your donation is a tax deduction, under tax ID number 33-0004167.

Please check with your employer as many corporations offer matching programs for donations. Your employer will provide instructions and forms to be filled out. Attached is a tax letter that you may need to submit to complete your matching request.
